Respite Care

Respite care is the provision of temporary living arrangements or special care services at home, both for adults and people with disabilities. It allows brief period of relief or rest for their regular caregivers, be they family members, guardians or others.

A wide range of in-home nursing and personal support programs are available for substitute caregivers. If you or a someone you know needs respite care Brisbane’s Jubilee Community Care can help.

Both short stay and long-term care programmes are available for adults living in the community with long-term care requirements. Respite care is often also needed for recent patients and hospital visitors who require care when during their recovery period or when stabilizing.

Our short-term care services are designed to help regular carers to take a short break from their duties. We also provide cover in the case of emergencies and illness when you are not able to care for someone that you normally have responsibility for.

Our fully trained and experience care and support professionals visit you at home. They can pick up wherever you leave off, continuing the daily routines, lifestyle and domestic needs of the patient, and in doing so minimising disruption and any associated anxiety.

Also known as short-term care, respite care is support for you and your carer. It provides carers with the opportunity to take a small break whilst ensuring that the patient’s needs continue to be supported. Respite care essentially enables your carer to continue caring for you longer. This may only be for a few hours a day, or longer periods if required. Your eligibility is key to the level of support required. This can be home or at facilities such as a residential care facility.

Both you and your carer will appreciate being supported and receiving the help you need. Respite care can also help you to have a wider social life, through meeting and talking to, and enjoying other people’s company.

Ultimately, respite care supports you and your carer and assists them if they choose to continue working or decide to re-enter the workforce.

If you are or have recently been in hospital and are ready to be discharged, you will probably also require respite care. We know that care requirements are often caused following emergency situations, and so flexibility is key to making your care arrangements work for you.
