What is CBC?
Nationwide specialised care centres such as CBCs can help you, or a loved one, requiring care.
CBC is when a person receives care in a ‘centre setting’ and engages in structured group activities.
There are various, individualised CBC services offered to the elderly and frail, as well as their carers, and include:
What can I expect from CBC?
CBC fees and charges may vary from centre-to-centre, with most charging a daily fee to cover everything from transport to group excursions/outings and meals or light refreshments.
Other centres may charge clients a daily fee as well as fees for the day’s activities/outings and meals.
Ensure you enquire about the fees and charges involved before using CBC services.
Centre Based Respite Care (CBRC)
Caring for an elderly or frail loved one can be difficult and often a well-deserved break is needed. CBRC offers individualised social and recreational activities to carers.
Carers can also attend day programs which may include incursions, outdoor or indoor activities or holiday programs.
To ensure care planning needs are met and the person being cared for is happy and lives a fulfilling life in their later years, it is important the services offered by the centre provide meaningful, creative and intellectually challenging activities.
