Respite care

In-home respite or centre-based respite through to overnight stays.

To give your caregiver a much-needed break or time to catch up on life, our support workers can look after you at home or in the community. 

We are an approved home care provider with over 20 years of experience and a commitment to quality care. We’ll listen and find out what’s important to you to ensure we do things to your liking.

Overnight respite

If you require a longer break in a caring and lively setting, we offer overnight stays at our secure centre at Sinnamon Park. There is no minimum stay for overnight breaks in this new and modern facility, and you can take full advantage of our rich day program of centre-based activities and social groups and bus trips and outings during your stay. Close proximity to Fulton Wellbeing Centre means you won’t have to miss your allied health appointments during your time with us. It also gives you the opportunity to access the on-site gym and hydrotherapy pool on a fee-for-service basis. 

Our qualified staff are caring and attentive and work hard to ensure your stay is enjoyable and engaging. We cater for people with a variety of care needs and we support you to get involved in activities and groups that match your interests and abilities. 

We welcome people living with dementia who require a secure setting and comfortable environment.
