Gippsland Lakes Community Health Respite Care

Gippsland Lakes Community Health can help carers of a person with a disability aged from 0 - 65 years take a break by offering short term Flexible Respite. Carers, like anyone, need time off for a number of reasons such as attending to shopping, appointments, family matters or quite simply to have a well-earned break. Respite for carers can be very helpful over holiday periods when their loved ones are not attending childcare, kindergarten, schools, or day service activities.  Respite is provided by trained support workers; it may take place in home or be an out of home activity. Group Activities are encouraged.  Everyone’s circumstances are unique; there are many options on how carers can take a break. 

For further information or to discuss your respite needs please contact GLCH Disability Care Coordinator, Margie Budge - Ph 5155 8300
