For some people, a full time move to a retirement village isn’t an option, but a short term stay can provide the break they need.
Respite care is short term relief provided to carers and care recipients. Aveo Respite Care is dedicated to providing quality and professional ‘low care’ support for people in need. At Aveo Respite Care everything is provided to allow care recipients to enjoy a comfortable stay in safe surrounds with first class services.
The best of both worlds - independence and safety:
- A low care facility
- Rapid access
- Flexible stays
- ACAT assessments not mandatory
- Comfortable and secure
- Professional and committed team
- Customised care options
Each respite stay is accommodated in a serviced one or two bedroom apartment featuring:
- a living/dining room
- en-suite bathroom with toilet
- a balcony or terrace
- quality fixtures and furniture
- 24hr emergency call system
Respite also provides support for carers themselves. It is estimated 12 per cent of Australia’s population are carers, with the average carer providing 40 hours per week of care to their loved ones*.
Breaks from caring can help relieve stress and exhaustion and allow carers to recharge their batteries allowing them to continue their important role. Aveo Respite Care is available every day of the year and is designed to provide the temporary relief needed while ensuring safety, security and comfort needs are comprehensively met.
