Family and Respite

Family members provide valuable care and support to their loved ones who want to remain at home. However, they may also suffer from illnesses or may be recovering from surgery. At times, they may also need time to rest and recuperate. It is important to recognise that a short break from your care responsibilities may help you to get back rejuvenated.

Sensible Care offers short term, temporary and emergency respite care services in order to let the primary carers and family members have a much-needed rest or relief.

While Home Care Package funding can be used for respite care, if a Home Care Package does not exist, Sensible Care is happy to provide privately funded respite services. Please contact us toll-free on 1800 121 000 to discuss how we can help.

There are a number of services you can receive as part of your Home Care Package.
