Caring for carers
We offer a flexible range of respite options so you can take 'time out', get energised and refreshed.
All Jewish Care facilities provide respite services, allowing the carers to rest while their loved ones are staying in a friendly, inclusive environment where their cultural needs are respected and celebrated.
Your loved one can spend from one week to several weeks at one of our four fully accredited aged care facilities. This may be for older people who are unwell or need extra care when recuperating after spending time in hospital, or when their regular carer is unable to provide the support they need. Eligibility criteria apply.
We also provide in-home respite service via our BlueStar Program enabling carers to have time out, while their loved one is being well cared for from the comfort of their home. Fees apply.
(Includes National Respite for Carers Program)
Seniors benefit from accessing day programs by pursuing activities, interests and friendships in a safe, supported and friendly environment, while carers gain peace of mind and enjoy planned breaks.
The National Respite for Carers Program also provides up to four hours a week of in-home respite care.
