Short term respite accommodation
Short term respite accommodation is available at Aracadia Aged Care Service. Residential respite supports people in a comfortable & friendly environment, with trained staff on hand to assist as needed. It provides a person the opportunity to participate in activities, and to develop friendships and maintain interests.
Being short term, residential respite allows people to remain in their own local community for most of the time.
Personal care services
Although our residents are encouraged to maintain independence with their everyday living tasks if extra assistance is needed our staff are available to help with showering, personal hygiene, medication, dressing, dementia and emotional support, mobility, meal assistance, special diets, rehabilitation, communication and short term illness.
