Respite Care

Vida provides highly-trained carers to support you to complete daily activities in the comfort of your own home for however long you need them, from 1-12 hours per day.

Providing constant care for a loved one can become all-encompassing, so our respite care can help alleviate some of that stress and pressure. After all, even the most supportive carers will benefit from unwinding.

Respite care allows regular carers, such as family members or friends, to take time off from caring and concentrate on their own wellbeing. Whether you choose to catch up on sleep or attend social activities, respite care allows you to take a deserved break.

At Vida, we provide a range of services including help managing day-to-day tasks such as housework, shopping and meal preparation. Schedules can be personalised to your requirements – from a two-hour daily session to choosing a live-in carer for a fortnight.

What does Respite Care involve?

Vida’s dedicated carers are on-hand to provide practical help and emotional support. They can provide help in the following ways:

  • Personal care, including help washing and dressing
  • Housework and cleaning
  • Management of medications
  • Nutrition and food preparation
  • Help attending medical appointments and maintaining a daily routine
  • Providing companionship

We provide regular communication with family members to ensure they are kept up to date with their loved one’s care plan.
