A great day out
With an ever rotating calendar of activities our day respite program offers participants a rewarding, stimulating and social day out, while their carer enjoys a day to themselves.
St Ives Home Care are funded under the Commonwealth Home Support Program to provide centre-based respite opportunities under our day centre respite program in south metropolitan suburbs of Perth.
Those living in Cockburn, Fremantle, Kwinana, Mandurah, Melville, Murray, Rockingham and Waroona council areas may be eligible for the program.
Included in the program is transport to and from the centre and a choice of lunch plus morning or afternoon tea is offered.
The optional activities, encouraging social interaction and healthy living, include things like games, discussions, walks, outings and moderate exercise classes. These change from week to week. For the latest availability of places for this program, sign up to receive our email newsletter.
Accessing day centre respite
You can access St Ives Home Care respite support under the CHSP without a formal aged care assessment, however to be eligible you must be receiving care from an informal carer.
