WHAT IS SHORT TERM accommodation and assistance (respite)

Short Term Accommodation & Assistance, also known as respite, gives individuals and families the chance to enjoy a great break in a supportive environment. Our dedicated support workers are available 24/7 to ensure people are fully supported during their time away from home. Our respite services will feel like a home away from home, while catering to an individual’s tastes and interests.

Our respite homes are welcoming and well-equipped. Our dedicated support staff will ensure all support needs are met. This includes daily tasks, like meal planning and cooking, and personal care such as showering and dressing, and taking medication. There are also great opportunities to develop independent living skills.
