Our Services

What is Respite?

Respite care is provided to families of people with disabilities to give them ‘time out’ from their regular caring role.

Respite is flexible and can be delivered in ways that best suit the needs of the person and their family. Respite can be provided from regular planned respite like 2 hours per week to bulk respite where you take your whole package together for a longer break. Respite can also be provided for group activities on weekends.
