Support for Carers to relax and recharge
If you are caring for an older person at home, there will probably be times when you need to recharge your batteries, take a holiday or pursue your own interests for a while.

Amana Living Respite Care can accommodate a wide range of mobility, care needs and levels of independence, including people living with dementia.
The aim of Respite Care is to support carers who are looking after an older person at home, by enabling you to take a break and relax, knowing that the person you care for is in good hands.
Our approach is to focus on the individual, understanding that the people we serve have enjoyed long and rich lives and that they each have their own unique needs, abilities, and preferences.
Respite Care can be provided either at home, in a day club or in a residential care centre.
There are three different types of Respite Care
Home Care Respite
Amana Living has four respite day clubs for older people.
All day clubs cater for people of any age living with dementia offering specially designed activity programs that meet varying abilities.
Our day club clients enjoy socialising, gardening, cooking, relaxing or going on outings, while carers have the chance to pursue their own interests for a few hours, or just relax.
Day clubs are open from Monday to Friday, with occasional weekend and evening activities. We can arrange transport to and from the club, and we provide lunch, morning and/or afternoon tea.
A short stay can also help to ease the transition into permanent care. Just as important, if you care for an older person at home, this option gives you the chance to take a real break and recharge your batteries.
To access respite at our either Lefroy care centre or Edward Collick Home you will need ACAT approval for residential respite. Your approval will provide residential respite care for up to 63 days per financial year.
Respite care is charged at the same rate as the basic daily fee and you may also be eligible for government funding to help with the daily rate. Speak to our knowledgeable and friendly staff for more information – 1300 262 626 (option 2).
Home Care respite can help if you are unable to visit the person you care for or need a short break.
For up to nine weeks, our friendly Home Care workers can provide support either home to the person you care for.
Home Care services are provided throughout Perth metropolitan area and in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
