Day Respite Care – a short-term option
Being the primary carer for a loved one is rewarding, but can also be challenging. It can take its toll on you physically and emotionally, and can make finding time for everyday tasks difficult.
Because we understand the needs of carers, Japara has developed a respite care program which enables the person you look after to enjoy the benefits of residential care on an ad hoc basis, while giving you more time in your day.
Our Japara homes are welcoming of all cultures and religions, with staff who are experienced supporting the needs of the local population.
How Day Respite Care works
We’ve designed this program to be stress-free for everyone. Drop your loved one to our home in the morning, where our team will be there to greet you both.
We’ll provide meals, and your loved one is also welcome to join the day’s leisure and lifestyle activities.
Our dedicated team will provide a health check and we will contact you with updates throughout the day. Transport and other allied health services can also be arranged at an additional cost.
