If you’re caring for someone who still lives in their own home, you may occasionally need to take a short break. This could involve anything from a few days to a few weeks off for a holiday or your own medical care. If the person you care for needs help on a day-to-day basis, they may need to have a short stay in an aged care home while you have a break. This is called residential respite care and can happen on a planned or emergency basis. Once you are back from your break, the person you care for will also return home.
Residential respite care is available in the Árpád home, provided that an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) assessment has been undertaken. (Link to ACAS Assessment). Call our office on (03) 9801 0855 if you would like to discuss a booking for respite care.
