Respite care can provide help for carers so they can go on a holiday or take part in everyday activities while ensuring the person they are caring for is looked after.
You can pay for Respite with your Home Care Package funds, but you need to be aware that there are guidelines:
You need to have the funds available in your package to fund this.
You can only use your funds to pay for Residential Respite if the facility has private beds.
You need to ensure there is a bed available at the facility of your choice.
There are different types of respite care so it’s worth speaking to one of our Care Experts on 1300 497 442 to find out if the type of respite you require is fundable from your Home Care Package.
