Respite Care

What is respite care and how can you benefit from it?

Are you currently caring for a loved one at home – a parent, child or life-long partner? Being a personal caregiver to a loved one who requires high level (or round-the-clock) support can often leave you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. It is too easy (and tempting) to devote all of your energy and time to your loved one and ignore your own health and needs in the process.

To continue to provide the best personal care that you can, it is important for you to take breaks from your caring role and have some time-out to take care of yourself and do the things that you enjoy.

With in home respite care, a trusted Sequel Support Worker can keep your loved one socially engaged at home, and also ensure their hygiene, physical, emotional and safety needs are met. We provide compassionate companionship and care for your loved one, empowering you to enjoy your respite period and return feeling rested and rejuvenated.

We will work closely with you to develop a respite care plan that is tailored to meet your individual needs and interests. We always conduct a comprehensive profile of your loved one to ensure the best possible respite care worker is matched to your loved one.

If you have any questions about getting started with Sequel, please call us on 9499 1200 and we will help you through the process.
