Respite Care

Advanced care requires specialised trained Carers, managed by experienced Service Coordinators and clinical oversight from a Registered Nurse.

Respite care is a chance for you and the person you care for to take a break.

As a carer you may need a break for a few hours or a few days. You may need help for a short period if, for example, you are ill or recovering from an illness yourself. In addition, the person for whom you are caring for might benefit from a change of scenery, or need more support than you can provide. Making arrangements to ensure excellent care is in place over a holiday or respite period doesn’t need to be difficult – our homecare is an easy solution and eliminates the stress of shifting to a care facility.

Miranda Smith Homecare Carers can provide respite care ranging from a few hours a week to overnight care or 24 hour rostered support. It can be transport to an appointment or social outing, help with shopping and medication management, or simply providing companionship from a carefully chosen Carer for a period of time.
