It is a place where people can spend their day in a pleasant, safe and friendly environment. There a lots of activities to choose from if you wish to participate, these activities are designed to develop maintain and support social interaction and independent living. Refreshments and nutritious meals are provided.
Overnight Respite; we offer short-term, out of home care, enabling carers to have a break with peace of mind. Length of stay is up to two days in the centre at any one time.
Overnight Care caters specifically for people who have dementia, are frail and elderly and from diverse ethnic backgrounds. It enables clients to spend a pleasant evening with friends, with the opportunity to stay overnight, if required.
The program allows time for carers to have time for themselves, while the person attending the centre can enjoy the break by participating in various activities and making some new friends.
In- Home Respite; is aimed at providing relief and support to the carer to enable them to continue in their caring role with the knowledge that there is someone caring for them. In-Home Respite will give the carer a break from the caring role. We can assist with things that the carer usually provides and give the carer time out. The trained worker will come to the home and help with the usual daily tasks. The carer may or may not be present during the delivery of service.BACK TO SERVICES
