What is Respite?

This break offers family caregivers temporary relief to help sustain their health and wellbeing. Respite care can involve a short stay (for example, a few hours) or a day placement for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.

For admission enquiries and bookings, please speak to the Aged Care Manager on (03) 5368 1100 or email hostel@bdhc.com.au.
