Low Care

Respite Care

Respite care - temporarily unavailable

Respite Care is a short term care and accommodation service that we provide at select Aveo and Freedom Care Communities. 

Due to the impact of COVID-19, we have made the decision to focus on the needs of the existing residents in our communities. As a result, there will be no new respite stays available within our communities until the COVID-19 threat is eliminated.

However, your enquiry is important to us and we would like to further understand your needs. Our team of Industry Liaison Professionals are available to assist you in finding a solution. Options that can be discussed include future planning, access to immediate care and services and permanent care options. 

To speak with an Industry Liaison Professional, please call 1800 835 217.

A short caring stay to relax and recharge

If you or a loved one need short-term care or would simply like to experience a Freedom Care Community, respite may be a good option. An aged care assessment (ACAT/ACAS) is not required prior to a respite stay at a Freedom Care Community. There are 25 Freedom Care Communities across Queensland, Victoria and regional New South Wales offering respite care.
