Respite Services

Respite Services

We applaud people who care for others in the community. Caring for someone takes a tremendous amount of effort and time, and while it’s often a labour of love, that doesn’t diminish the fact that often the carer also needs support. The good news is, respite is not only enjoyable for your loved-one. Taking a break can also recharge your batteries, helping you to continue caring for the person you love.

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. We take a flexible approach to meeting the needs of your loved-one, and you’ll find that this temporary break has a positive effect on both the physical and emotional wellbeing of the person in respite, and on you!

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

We come to you

If your loved-one needs a few hours respite in their home to allow you 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 and those of your loved-one.


Or you can come to us

Life Care offers day, overnight or short-term respite in a number of different locations across Adelaide.

It means people can stay for a few hours or a few days while you take a short holiday, catch up with family, or just take some time for yourself (remember that’s definitely important too!).

Day and overnight respite are offered at our dedicated respite cottage at Everard Park, Norman House. The home is a beautifully restored early 1900s bungalow that accommodates four people overnight and up to 12 people during the day. We make Norman House as much like a home as possible, and its environment is welcoming, fun and vibrant.  

Short-term respite is available at each of our Residential Living locations located in Aldinga Beach, Glen Osmond, Everard Park, Old Reynella, and Joslin.

Respite at our Residential Living locations is available to support people whatever their level of need and is generally booked in week blocks.  Your loved-one 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 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.
