RehabCare's centre-based respite care services afford many people with disabilities their only opportunity to take a holiday while at the same time providing the families/carers with a break from fulltime caring. The presence of a respite service is key in helping the individual remain in the family home for as long as possible.
The philosophy of our centre-based services is to provide a home from home setting, making it an enjoyable and relaxed time for the individual in an environment where the family can be confident that their family member's needs are being well catered for.
The duration of respite is dependant on the individual’s circumstances.
What is supported accomodation?
The accommodation, which can be on a permanent and/or longer term transitional basis, is in a community based setting. The accommodation is a person's home, a place where they can live as independently as possible, either on their own or with others.
