Resthaven Community Respite Services support carers of frail older people who live in the southern and eastern metropolitan area. Our overnight community respite service at Ridgway House, 36 Sussex Terrace, Westbourne Park, is also available for carers living in country areas who need to visit town and are seeking city based respite services.
Practical support is offered to carers and the people they care for to:
- stay living at home
- stay independent and in charge of their own life
- keep in touch with family, friends and the community
- keep leading a healthy and fulfilling life
- keep contributing to the community.
Individually tailored services are based on need, and are provided in the home-like Ridgway House.
Overnight community respite for carers of older people with low and high level care needs may include small group respite care, support/counselling for carers. Fee for service in-home care and support is also available.
Ridgway House offers overnight respite for carers during weekdays. Each cosy room has an ensuite bathroom. Home cooked meals are included.
Carers also have the option of staying overnight in the twin room.
