Respite Care or short term care is available for those whose carer may need a break, or those who may need additional care to recover from an illness and return to independent living.
Respite care is approved for 63 days each year. You may book for 2, 3 or 4 weeks or more or you may use up the maximum nine week period all at once. Charges are the same as for permanent board and lodging.
Ningana provides linen and furnishing while you are here and you are encouraged to bring personal items with you.
To access Respite care you will need a respite appraisal by an Aged Care Assessment Team.
