Find adult respite services in Traralgon

Regular breaks are necessary for carers to maintain optimal wellbeing. If you support a person with disability and live in the Traralgon area, then Melba Support is right here to help you. Melba provides welcoming respite services in Traralgon for adults. 

As a carer, you will know that a big part of caring is taking the person out to enjoy activities in the local community. In Traralgon, that could be enjoying a picnic and getting back to nature in one of the many parks and reserves, such as Hyde Park or Traralgon Railway Reservoir Conservation Reserve. Maybe it's going to see a movie, or enjoying a meal out in a favourite cafe in downtown Traralgon. 

Melba staff also know great spots to take people with disability for days out. Wherever it is, Melba is all about assisting people to live a fabulous life.

How long does a person stay at respite services in Traralgon?

Adult respite services in Traralgon offer flexibility for the carer and the person supported. We work with you to provide the length of time you need for your short break, and with the person you support to provide the right care for their needs. 

The person can stay overnight, for a few days, some time over the holidays, or another length of time as arranged with Melba respite.

One of the most important things to remember is to keep up those regular breaks if you're a full-time carer. That way you have time to do other things and maintain your wellbeing.
