If you are caring for someone who still lives in their own home, as a carer, you may occasionally need to take a short break. You may also need help if you are unwell or are unable to provide care for any other reason.

We here at Lulworth House can assist you by providing respite care or short term care. The minimum respite period available is two (2) weeks with a maximum of 63 days (nine weeks) in one financial year. You will also require an ACAT assessment for Respite care.

If you need emergency respite care, phone your local Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre on 1800 052 222 during business hours (Monday to Friday, 8.30am–5.00pm) or 1800 059 059 outside business hours.

For further information and to discuss availability, please contact the admissions manager on 0450 854 801.
