Cover for your carer
If you have a carer we can arrange for someone to cover for an hour or two and give them a chance to run their own errands.
Support for you if you have a carer
Our program offers up to two hours of respite per week, or ad hoc by negotiation, if you're over 65 (or 50 years and over if Aboriginal or Torres Straight Islander) and you have a carer.
You will need a Flexible Respite referral code from My Aged Care to be eligible. Cover will only cost you $11 per hour. Let us know if you are unsure how to obtain your code.
Call us on 8206 0777 to ask about this type of cover.
Other support for your carer
We can put them in touch with people in a similar situation and help them take care of themselves so they can keep caring for longer.
