Time to take a breather
Caring for a loved one can be very rewarding, but it can also be very demanding.
You might have somewhere to go. You might have something to do. Or, you might just need to recharge your batteries. Whatever the reason, our respite service can give you the peace of mind knowing your loved one is in good hands.
Residential respite at Brightwater
While we do offer respite services in your own home, support in a residential aged care home may be more appropriate. This service can be provided for a minimum of one week through to nine weeks.
We can offer temporary accommodation at the following Brightwater homes:
- Brightwater Madeley
- Brightwater Onslow Gardens (Subiaco)
- Brightwater Oxford Gardens (Joondalup)
- Brightwater The Cove (Mandurah)
- Brightwater The Oaks (Waikiki)
Eligibility & Fees
To be eligible for respite in one of our homes, your loved one will need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).
If approved by an ACAT, respite fees may be subsidised by the Australian Government. Unlike permanent aged care, there are no accommodation charges, bonds, or income-tested fees. You will be asked to pay a basic daily fee, which is approximately 85% of the single Age Pension, and in some cases, a prepayment.
