Respite at our place
Life Care offers day, overnight or short-term Respite.
It means people can stay for a few hours or a few days while their carers take a short holiday, catch up with family, or simply run errands.
Day and Overnight Respite is offered at our dedicated Respite home at Everard Park, Norman House. The home is a beautifully restored home that accommodates 4 people overnight and up to 12 people during the day. This ‘home’ style Respite provides a caring, welcoming and personal environment for everyone who stays there.
Short-term Respite is available at all Life Care’s Residential Living homes located in Aldinga Beach, Glen Osmond, Everard Park, Old Reynella and Joslin.
Respite at our Residential Living homes is available to support people whatever their level of needs and is generally booked in week blocks. You may be entitled to stay up to 63 days in a year. Respite residents have access to all of the facilities and services of Residential Living and in some instances, this provides a good opportunity for people to experience care in a residential setting before taking up a permanent position.
