Respite Services

Give yourself the time you need.

We offer a range of respite services to help our clients’ family and friends continue their caring role and maintain their wellbeing. Options include help at home, day programs, overnight, emergency and residential respite stays.

Respite Services

Respite at home

A qualified Benetas carer can come to care for your loved one at home for a simple hourly fee. There is no waiting list for this service and support is available 24/7.

Day programs

As an alternative to in-home care, you may want to consider a day program at one of our respite centres.

A day program will give your loved one the chance to chat, play games and share meals with others. They will also have the opportunity to go on outings – to museums, parks and other local attractions.

Operating Monday to Friday, our centres are extremely comfortable, social and homely. 

Overnight and extended stays

Many of our centres also have bedrooms so that your loved one can spend extended time with us – whether it be overnight, for the weekend or for a longer stay. This can be very useful when you travel for work or go on holiday.

With 24-hour onsite care, we provide all meals and make every effort to help your loved one follow their normal home routine.

Our onsite teams are extremely caring and build strong relationships with their clients.

Residential facilities

Many of our aged care centres have dedicated rooms for respite care. This service is suited to older people who are unwell or recuperating after time in hospital (if their regular carer is unable to support them).

Residential respite is subject to availability.
