Formal Respite Care Services:

A range of formal respite care services are available including:

  • In-home Respite: A caregiver visits your place to provide assistance from time to time, in a week. It can include morning hours, specified hours or overnight support. The support worker can look after a NDIS participant at their home or can take him/her out for a walk or a particular activity.
  • Centre-based Respite: This is when the participant visits a centre to attend a group activity for certain hours. There are usually activities and events at these centres to help participants expand their capabilities.
  • Community Access Respite: This kind of respite helps the participant in getting engaged in various activities that can encourage them to cultivate independent living and enhance their social skills. This could be an organisation, a community centre or a support worker who might accompany the participant’s family, to assistance in various activities.

If you are looking for informal respite care for yourself to avoid involving strangers in tasks, here are some options you could explore:

  • Family and Friends: Any family member or a trusted friend can look after the participant when unpaid caretakers are not available or if there is a need for a break.
