Respite Care (Short-Term)

Relief and Peace of Mind: Respite Services for Primary Caregivers

What is Respite Care (Short-Term)?

Respite care is temporary, short-term care provided when family caregivers cannot care for a loved one. This type of care can be used in case of an emergency, but is primarily used as a support system for family caregivers.

Under the NDIS, short term accommodation (STA) replaces what used to be called respite for people with a disability.

Respite Care (Short – term) provides:

The main types of Respite Care :

  • Domiciliary or Homecare – arranging for someone to provide care in your own home will minimise the disruption. This can either be accessed via a professional homecare service.

  • Residential respite – care is provided in a residential home, a nursing home or a local care home if they offer short-term facilities.

Why Should I choose Respite Care?

Caring for a loved one is a rewarding, but difficult job – leaving little time for personal time. Many family caregivers experience something called caregiver burnout, and need time away from their responsibilities – whether it’s for work, vacation, or just a time to themselves. Respite care can help caregivers take a break while providing them the peace of mind that their loved one is being taken care of by trained professionals.

Respite care is also an excellent opportunity for older adults to see what life is like at Nationwide Care Plus. Guests can enjoy the amenities and services that we have to offer.
