There are three types of short-term care you can access.  Short-Term Restorative Care; Transition Care; and Respite Care.

Short-Term Restorative Care

For those who are starting to need help at home with daily tasks to maintain their independence.  This may delay or even avoid the need for long-term care and support services.

Short- term care may involve a range of professional services that help you manage your difficulties and create a plan for the ongoing management of the difficulties you face.

Transition Care

For those that are recovering after a hospital stay.  This type of care uses a range of specialised support services that can help you manage your condition at home and focuses on preventative measures to help keep you out of hospital.

Respite Care

For you or to give your carer a break.

You might need a little respite at home or a trip out of the house. Your carer may need to take a break for a while.  Respite care can be taken at home or in an aged care home depending on your needs.
