Respite care

Respite care services for those who care for others


We understand that caring for a loved one can be a very rewarding experience, but it can also be physically and emotionally demanding. If you are a carer, it is important that you look after your physical and mental wellbeing.

Our respite services allow you to have a break while we provide professional care for your loved one. You may wish to schedule regular respite care services, or just a once-off service to cover you for a period of time. Whatever the reason, we can help you care for your loved one while you rest or attend to other matters.  

  • Keep you well so you can care for others.
  • Ensure caring remains a rewarding experience.
  • Provide you with support and education.

Frequently Asked Questions

This service is designed for carers who require a short break from looking after their loved ones.

We will conduct an initial assessment to determine your loved one's needs before assigning the appropriate support that is required. All of our team members work for integratedliving and we do not outsource personal carers. If you have a preference for a particular Registered Nurse or Support Worker, please let us know and we will do our utmost to arrange to have this individual assigned to your loved one.

Our staff can come to your home, or you can take your loved one to one of our Wellness/Activity Centres for the day, while you have some time for yourself. Call our Customer Service Centre on 1300 782 896 to find out more.

Our staff are fully trained to manage and provide care in a COVID-19 safe aged care environment, and our Wellness/Activity Centres are cleaned regularly throughout the day.
