Uniting Agewell Being

Caring for those who care

At Uniting AgeWell, we understand the importance of supporting people who care for seniors in our community.

We offer a range of respite options to give carers a break, while providing a stimulating and supportive environment for the person they care for.

These options can include:

  • In Home Respite - a one-to-one service where a care worker provides respite within your home or the care recipient may be taken into the community.
  • Day Respite Program - respite is provided within a day centre setting, appropriate to individual care needs.
  • Community Access/Transit Groups - where a small group of clients go on an outing with the support of a care worker.
  • Overnight Respite - respite is provided overnight in an overnight cottage or other community residential facility. Respite can be arranged for 1 or 2 nights or for 

Our respite program is funded and reviewed annually by the Department of Health.
