Respite Care Support

This service is designed to provide opportunities for carers to take a break from their usual role of caring for frail older people, people with a disability or to the families of younger people with a disability. Respite care support can be provided in a person’s home or in the community.

Respite care may be:

  • planned regular respite.
  • occasional respite.

Carer Support Groups

The Senior Carers Support Group and the Chinese Carers Support Group provide an opportunity for carers, who are caring for someone with a disability, or is frail aged, to get together, share ideas, experiences, information and concerns about their caring role. The groups meet monthly and are supported by a facilitator.

Carers can be partners or family members aged 60 years or more who live, work or have a care recipient who attends school or a day program in Manningham.
