Respite Services

Respite Services

Life Care is committed to providing support to those people who are caring for others in the community. We recognise how important carers are, and that they often need as much support as the person they are caring for.

At Life Care, Respite is about providing quality care on a temporary basis to carers, allowing them to have a much-needed break from their day-to-day commitments.

We can provide respite for various lengths of time, from a couple of hours or an overnight stay, right through to a couple of months.

Life Care Respite offers a range of accommodation, care and activities to meet your personal needs, This temporary break has a very positive effect on both the physical and emotional well being of the person in respite, as well as the carer.

Life Care's respite services are available, either in your own home, at our dedicated respite centre, Norman House, or at one of our Residential Homes.

Respite at your place

If you need a few hours respite in your own home to allow a family carer to attend a social event, do the weekly shopping or attend an appointment, we can help.

A dedicated advisor will work closely with you and your family to understand what is required and work out a tailored respite program that suits your needs.

Out & About Club

Life Care runs a club which brings together like-minded people to share in social activities on a regular basis. This currently runs from our Reynella and Aldinga Beach locations.

Side by Side

Side by Side is a program specifically designed for people with younger onset dementia (those with dementia under the age of 65).

They spend a day working alongside a 'buddy' in organisations that, like Life Care, are committed to supporting this group, who face specific day-to-day challenges in their own community.


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.


The cost of Respite Services, either in your home or with us, will depend on what type of services you need. 

Some services are partly funded by National Respite Carer's Program.
