In-House Respite is available 5 days a week, excluding public holidays.

In-House Respite provides carers of clients requiring 24 hour care with a break from their caring responsibilities. The service is tailored to individual requirements and can be arranged regularly or occasionally.

Every effort will be made to ensure continuity of care, however this is not always possible due to carers taking leave or other service demands.

Home Support staff are not permitted to perform any nursing duties, such as the administration of medication or wound care.

  • Low fee: $3.50 per hour  
  • Medium fee: $6.40 per hour 
  • High fee: $47.40 per hour 

Fees are determined according to the income of the individual client or the client's household.
