Respite care provides short-term care for older people, either in their own home or in a residential aged care home.
Respite care also ensures that carers or family members are able to take a short break to recharge and take care of their own wellbeing too.
Respite care can be used for a number of reasons and our respite options are flexible to suit your needs.
Respite care provides 24 hours care and support from our dedicated, caring and qualified team within one of our residential aged care facilities across NSW.
Respite availability may vary between locations and we recommend that you speak with us about finding respite care at a Whiddon home near you.
You may have been in hospital or unwell and require some additional help and care while you recover and get back on your feet
Your carer may be going away on holiday or have a busy period at work and need some additional support
You may be starting to look at moving into a residential aged care home and looking at your options. A short-term stay is a great way to experience an aged care home and see whether it’s right for you before moving in permanently
