Cover for your carer
If you have a carer we can arrange someone to look after you or take you for an outing while your regular carer takes a break.
Support for you if you have a carer
This respite involves a paid support worker coming to your home to help with preparing meals, giving your medication and personal care such as showering or dressing so that your carer can go out for an hour or two.
It's especially helpful if your carer needs to run their own errands, attend their own appointments or if they simply want a little time out each week to recharge their batteries.
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.
