Are you a carer?

A Carer is a family member or friend who provides ongoing unpaid care to a person who is frail aged, has dementia, a disability, is palliative or has a mental illness.

What is Respite? / Why is Respite important?

Respite provides an opportunity for Carers to have a “timeout” from their usual caring role and focus on their wellbeing.

Respite care may also assist the cared for in exploring different options and opportunities within the community.

Respite helps maintain a positive relationship between the Carer (family, friend, neighbour) and the individual which they care.

What options are available for Carers of Frail Aged and People with Dementia?

Emergency Essential respite or unplanned care
This type of care is used when carers cannot provide immediate care in a crisis or emergency situation.

Residential respite is based in aged care facilities throughout South West, Victoria.

In-Home car
Personal care or home help provided in your own home.

Centre Based Respite
Day programs that offer regular daily activities with a social or recreational focus

Recreation and Leisure Activities
Assistance is given to enable older people or people with disabilities to make friends and participate in recreational activities or group recreation programs.

Flexible Respite/ Brokerage Support
Provide coordination and possible funding to enable access to needs-based respite options.
