What is respite care?
Respite services can be provided as daily care in a program run in an adult day care centre or as a short-term stay in a residential setting. Respite is designed to give the carer of an aged person time to rest, attend to domestic or social duties, or have a holiday.
To access respite, the client must usually be assessed and approved by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) in NSW. The Manor provides respite care services for stays of up to 63 days. Please take the time to discuss your requirements with us.
