Carer support and respite

Are you a carer for someone close to you? Or do you have a carer? 

We provide a range of respite services to carers through our Home Support program. We also organise activities for carers which can take place either in the home or out in the community.

Carers need to be given the opportunity for a break from their responsibilities. Our current services support older people to remain living at home and in their community with safety, dignity and an acceptable quality of life.

As of 1 July 2023, Council will no longer be a Commonwealth Home Support Programme provider. For information about alternative options, call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or Sharon Gill, Transition Officer on (03) 5422 0225.
