Respite care


Caring for a loved one is a precious and cherished responsibility. It may, at times, also be demanding and overwhelming.

Everyone needs to take time out to care for themselves; to rest, relax and rejuvenate. We can help you take this time by caring for your loved one through one of our respite initiatives.

Respite care can also help in the intensive recovery period after a stay in hospital or acute illness. It may be that you’re at home alone and unable to manage as you normally would. Some extra help with your personal care or tasks around home can make all the difference.

Residential Respite

Your loved one can come to our safe, comfortable and well-appointed residence at Rembrandt Court, Oaklands Park.

This could be on a regular basis or a one-off longer stay according to your needs.

The daily fee for a respite resident is set by the Government at 85% of the single basic Age Pension. Because the stay is temporary, you don’t have to pay an accommodation charge or bond. You can access up to 63 days of subsidised care in a financial year and Rembrandt has a minimum booking of three weeks.
