Aveo Respite and Recovery Locations

Respite care is available at 25 of our retirement villages across Australia:

At Aveo we realise the importance of offering a respite program which provides short term accommodation in a comfortable ‘home away from home’ environment. That’s why we offer a respite program in 25 of our retirement villages around Australia. Our Aveo wellness philosophy promotes good health and wellbeing and we are dedicated in providing not only quality residential accommodation, but personalised care options to ensure you’ll always have the right care and support serviced by our qualified and experienced staff.

  • Aveo Respite Care does not require an ACAT assessment for admission, meaning no hold ups to ensure rapid access to respite care.
  • Fully flexible terms: Overnight, short term or longer term stays.
  • Aveo Respite also opens the door to meeting new people and discovering new interests as all our guests can enjoy all the amenities and activities provided to our full-time Aveo residents who currently enjoy life in one of our retirement villages.

When to consider respite care?

  • You are recovering from a hospital stay and you need some extra time, care and support before returning home
  • You need extra help to recuperate after a fall or incident at home
  • Your family is going away on holiday and you need support and companionship
  • You want to feel safe and secure in a friendly environment and need some time to refresh
  • You’re a caregiver and need some personal time to recharge and want to ensure the care, safety and support of your loved one.

Individual care

Our dedicated staff will work closely with families, carers and health professionals to ensure that individual preferences and needs are identified so we can facilitate a tailored plan. Our staff respect and ensure the privacy and confidentiality of all our guests as their wellbeing is our priority.
