Flexible Respite service is available to the carers of people with dementia and those who are frail. It provides the carer a break from their caring role to attend to their own needs and well being.
Carers are allocated an amount of respite which they can choose to use in whichever format suits their needs. They also have the option of 'banking hours' to plan for special occasions.
A support worker stays with the care recipient so the carer can go out (shopping, social activity, etc). Alternately the support worker may take the care recipient out and leave the carer at home to have a break.
Fees may vary depending on income level and will be discussed at assessment.
