Day Respite Centre
St Basil’s is funded to provide respite services for family carers under the Commonwealth Home Support Program. We can provide much needed support to carers either at home or at our family friendly day centre. We also offer special activities/events for family carers and shared events for family carers and care recipients. Why not give us a call and discuss your need for carer support.
Day Respite Centre
The centre based program is designed to provide support to the carers of frail aged persons from Culturally & linguistically diverse cultures. The aim of the centre is to provide peace of mind to carers while they take a break from their care responsibilities to enable them to attend to their own needs, work, or just take a short break. The day centre is open three days/week and will provide transport to and from the centre, a lunchtime meal, activities, social support and access to health referrals if required. Our centre will also offer a secure dementia specific service.
