Respite Care

We provide respite care right across Melbourne and Victoria – find a location near you.

If things are becoming unmanageable at home, or you feel a loved one could benefit from some time to themselves, we can assist with short-term respite care.

Making this step can be emotionally challenging, but we invite you to call us so we can explain how respite care can help you. We will also help you to find a suitable care location.

You may benefit from respite care if you are:

  • recovering from injury or illness
  • feeling a little isolated
  • require convenient access to short-term services
  • wanting to maintain your independence so you can stay in your own home.

Respite care can also support your loved one if you are:

  • unable to be fully supported by someone due to their injury or illness
  • worried about the toll your care may be having on family/friends
  • wanting to give your carer a break.

Dementia Care

We understand that caring for someone living with dementia can be challenging. While some days are relatively easy and joy-filled, others can be frustrating, tiring and overwhelming.

Depending on the stage of your loved one’s dementia, we provide both integrated dementia care models, where your loved one will live amongst the general home community or in a dedicated memory support unit. Whichever type of home suits your loved one best, our tailored, dementia-aware activity programs ensure their days are full and purposeful.

We understand that placing someone you dearly love into care may be one of the most challenging decisions you will face. Our customer care and onsite care teams in every one of our homes will work closely with you to ensure the transition is smooth and considered.

Palliative Care

When a loved has an incurable illness and is nearing the end of their life, we understand that your main concern is ensuring they are as comfortable as possible.

Palliative care provided by our warm and empathetic team, is individualised to the specific needs and choices of your loved one. We support you by offering:

  • end-of-life pathway care planning
  • pain and symptom relief
  • resources and equipment that you may require
  • assistance and support for your family to unite and talk about sensitive issues, including meals and other needs
  • external palliative specialists for extra support if required
  • planning for future medical treatment decisions and goals of care
  • links to other services including home help, financial, counselling and grief support
  • emotional, cultural, social and spiritual support.
