Respite Services



If you care for someone who is aged, frail, has a disability or who are living with a mental health illness, you may be eligible for subsidised short-term or emergency respite care.

Suncare Community Services provide personalised care for carers through multiple types of respite. 

Types of respite

  • At home respite care which can include; domestic assistance or personal care.
  • Flexible short-term respite options include in-home or at our respite cottage.
  • Emergency respite support.
  • One-on-one support.
  • Support groups, recreational activities and peer engagement at a day respite centre or other community-based environments.

With our respite service, we provide an opportunity for social experiences to support independent living.

If you’re over 65, you may be able to access these services as a part of your  Home Care Package.  This package is also accessible through the My Aged Care Commonwealth Home Support Programme. Alternatively, you can arrange privately funded services through Suncare.
