Respite care

Depending on room availability, Eldercare may be able to provide short-term respite care, including convalescent care after hospitalisation.

Respite care

Depending on room availability, Eldercare offers a period of up to 4 weeks respite care with an aim to transition to permanent admission. This enables the resident, the resident’s family and Eldercare the opportunity to ensure the fit is right as well as providing an adjustment period that can make for a smoother transition into permanent care.

The care provided during the respite period is of the same high standard that our permanent residents receive, including around-the-clock care from our skilled and attentive staff, home-cooked meals and the opportunity to meet new friends and participate in activities that form part of our lifestyle program.

Eldercare may be able to provide short-term respite care, including convalescent care, to aid in recovery after hospitalisation. This is offered for a minimum period of 4 weeks and is based on vacancy levels at the time of enquiry. Short term respite is offered at the discretion of the Site Manager with priority being given to residents seeking permanent placement, therefore, we cannot take short term respite bookings in advance.

The cost of respite care is based on the basic daily fee set by the Australian Government and is equivalent to 85% of the single Centrelink aged pension. Respite fees for the full period are billed in advance upon admission.

Respite care recipients must be assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). For more information, call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or go to

Once you have obtained an ACAT assessment, you can enquire online or contact our admissions team on 1300 925 414 to discuss your individual circumstances and enquire about room availability.
