Respite care supports you and your carer by giving you both a break for a short period of time. It can help give you and your carer the time and space to do things independently.

It can be accessed for a few hours, a few days or longer. It can be accessed in your home, out in the community or in one of our available homes. 

Emergency respite care can also be arranged with short notice in such circumstances but not limited to: 

  • death of a primary carer
  • major illness of a primary carer
  • an urgent situation that makes it difficult for your carer to look after you.
