Aged Care Respite

Residential Respite Care is when Olivet Care takes care of the person you care for a short-term period

When you are providing care for someone else, you need a break at times. At Olivet we offer aged care respite services. We see every day the dedication and commitment involved with full-time care and understand how essential it is to take time for yourself

Feel at ease knowing your loved one will receive individual care tailored to their specific need. Olivet Care recognises all individual needs with respect to their dignity, cultural diversity, individuality, and freedom of choice, in a safe and secure environment.

Respite allows the carer to take a break from their caring role and can be arranged for planned breaks, short holidays, medical procedures, and recovery from illness. It can also be accessed in emergencies.

At Olivet Care we have two dedicated high care single respite rooms
(with ensuite) and one low care respite room which is also a single room
(with ensuite). Our dedicated staff provide continuity of care of an excellent standard to our respite guests. All respite guests will have the opportunity to be involved in social activities and can participate in a daily activity program if they choose.

respite for carers

Once approved for respite care, Olivet offers two-week respite bookings with extensions due to availability. The cost of respite is set by the government and is equivalent to 85% of a single pension

When I am at Olivet enjoying short-term respite, I feel like I am in a home away from home and being part of a large family. I am so welcomed and can’t fault the staff. My room is very comfortable and I enjoy participating in the activities.
