Residential respite care can be offered to you on a planned or emergency basis. If you need help from your carer every day, you may need to have a short stay in an aged care home.
We can provide a range of services, depending on your needs. You can access residential respite care for up to 63 days each financial year. You can extend this time in lots of 21 days if an assessment finds that you need this extra time.
You will first need a free assessment with a member of an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT, or ACAS in Victoria). An ACAT will talk to you about your current situation and to work out if you are eligible for residential respite care. Call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to be referred for a free assessment with an ACAT.
