If you own a home, it will not be counted as an asset if, at the time of the asset assessment or your entry into care (whichever is earlier):
• Your partner or dependent child is living there; or
• A carer eligible for an Australian Government income support payment has been living there for at least two years; or
• A close relative who is eligible for an Australian Government income support payment has been living there for at least five years.
We take your safety and wellbeing seriously and need to know immediately if you have any concerns or feedback. Your home must also be a safe environment for our staff or contractors. Never pay anyone in cash or directly yourself, unless prearranged with your home support services coordinator.
If you are ineligible to receive funding from the government but would still like some assistance at home, we’re here to help. Simply give us a call or email us to let us know and we can discuss your options.
Respite is ‘taking time away or a break from regular roles or activities that may be challenging’ . In practice, it means finding someone to take over your care role for a short time, so you can have some time to yourself.
Our respite services are flexible and responsive to both the needs of the carer and care recipient. We provide respite programs and activities that are safe, engaging, stimulating and focused on individual interests.
We provide personalised respite care to people living with all types of dementia. We specialise in caring for people who may have difficulty accessing other support due to challenging behaviours.
We offer in-home, centre-based, and overnight care, so you can find a respite option that works for you .
