Respite Care

Respite care (also known as ‘short-term care’) is a form of support for the older person and his or her carer.  It gives the carer the opportunity to be relieved from full time care responsibility for a short period of time to maybe attend to personal matters or take a holiday whilst having the peace of mind that the older person is being taken care of.

Respite care in residential aged care facilities provides the full spectrum of care and services, including personal, nursing, medication management, lifestyles and all essential services such as catering, cleaning and laundry, to eligible aged persons who have been assessed and approved by ACAT (Aged Care Assessment Team).   To find your local ACAT: https://www.myagedcare.gov.au/service-finder?tab=assessment-team

CBCS facilities offers respite care services in all its residential aged care facilities.  Availability or extension of stay is subject to bed availability at the time.  Booking and respite fees are chargeable prior to or on respite care admission.  Anyone who is interested in using this service should contact each of our facilities directly for the application form, conditions and details.
