What is Respite Care?
Respite care – also known as short term break – allows NDIS beneficiaries to get in-home care or stay in an NDIS registered centre for a short duration. They get a qualified care provider to look after all their needs in a safe, familiar environment. These services can be provided in the comfort of their home or at a residential centre.
Likewise, respite care services also offer the caregiver time off from their daily routine. It allows them to rest and recuperate, enjoy their own personal time and enjoy their own plans. The support is a highly crucial one as both caregiver and patient get a reprieve from the monotony of their daily routines.
