Short Term Respite Care

We offer a range of short term respite care for people that do not require long stay or permanent admission to a nursing home. Our respite care service provides temporary relief to caregivers.

Respite services are available to support an individual’s ability to live longer in the community by ensuring family/other caregivers are supported.

All Mowlam Healthcare homes maintain respite care facilities. These services are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Access to respite care services is based on the need for temporary relief and the availability of facility resources.

A multidisciplinary team, consisting of the Mowlam Healthcare Professionals, the individual and their caregiver, the attending physician and facility staff, provide:

  • assessment and referral services
  • nursing care
  • resident and caregiver support
  • self-care, health promotion, and prevention of illness or injury
  • recreation and socialisation opportunities
  • nutrition, laundry and housekeeping services
  • as well as medical services in collaboration with a family physician.
