Caring for a parent or friend who requires assistance with daily living can bring joy, but it can also be demanding. Respite Care is an opportunity that allows us to provide the carer with a break from this responsibility.

Respite breaks gives the carer a chance to have a break, visit friends, undertake paid employment, study or just have some free-time to recover from the demands of caring and catch up with the tasks of running a household. For the senior needing care, Respite offers them a chance to be with others, try out our nursing home or gain additional life experiences in being part of a caring community and sometimes have a much needed break from the carer.

Respite works best when it improves the quality of life of both the carer and care-recipient. Respite has been shown to reduce stress levels in carers, enhance quality of life and be a crucial part of maintaining a caring role.

Byron Aged Care’s Respite Care is provided by a diverse, dedicated team of professionally trained staff. They have a passion for working with seniors and work with loving care – the hallmark of Byron Aged Care. All appointed employees undergo an extensive hiring process with interviews, professional reference and criminal record screening.
