Respite Care
We care for carers too

Short-stay residential respite.

Caring for mum or dad and need a break? Planning a well-deserved holiday or dealing with health or personal matters? We can take care of your loved one, while you take care of your wellbeing.

A short-stay at one of our six vibrant Residential Aged Care communities in Adelaide’s West or North may be the chance you need to recharge or recuperate.

A period of respite also offers the opportunity to experience what living in a Residential Aged Care community is like.

To find out more about our respite options, submit an online enquiry or call our friendly Care Connect team on (08) 8448 6280.

Enjoy all the comforts of home.

Respite guests at our Residential Aged Care communities enjoy their own private room and ensuite. Guests dine with the residents and become part of the resident family.

There is also a choice of leisure and lifestyle activities to participate in. Family and friends are most welcome and our staff are always on hand for a chat.

Residential respite is available for short or long term stay. We recommend a minimum of two weeks to ensure the carer and care recipient experience the full benefits of this program.

Respite at home.

We understand many people prefer to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their home. If you prefer respite care to be delivered to your loved one in a familiar surrounding, we can come to you.

Our highly qualified and experienced personal carers all hold a minimum Certificate III in Aged and/or Community Care.

They will provide safe, sensitive and dignified care, including support with showering, meals, shopping, appointments and much more.

Explore our full range of home support.


This program can be funded privately, or through an Australian Government Home Care Package. An Aged Care Assessment is not required to access this service privately.

To find out more about our at-home respite options, fill out our online enquiry form or call our Home Care team on (08) 8448 6250.
