How long a child or adult can stay

Carers of people with disability should take regular breaks to maintain optimal health. A short break will mean you can attend to other matters, or simply rest and recharge your batteries. Let Melba support the one you're caring for.

It could be:

· an overnight stay

· a few days

· some time over the school holidays

A short break is also beneficial to a supported person. It's an opportunity to socialise, meet new friends and try new activities. At Melba, supports are individually tailored to the person's needs, tastes, and interests.
