Our care centres (except for Wearne House in Mandurah) provide residential respite care for up to nine weeks.

During their stay, we get to know our clients as individuals with their own needs, abilities and preferences. We understand that they will want to do things in their own way and take their time. At the same time, we encourage them to enjoy the change of scene, different activities and the opportunity to socialise with others.

A short stay in one of our care centres 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.

We offer some of the most spacious rooms in the industry, most with private ensuites, and many with private lounge rooms and kitchenettes.

To find out if you are eligible for residential care centre respite, you must have been assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) during the last 12 months.

To arrange an assessment, contact your GP.

The ACAT includes a doctor, nurse, social worker and other health professionals. They will review your care needs and determine the best way to meet them.

If the assessment states that you have been approved for respite care, you are ready for the next step.

Contact us to arrange your respite care by calling 1300 26 26 26.

The cost of residential care centre respite is set at 85% of the single basic age pension.

The current single basic age pension is $788.28 per fortnight. So a stay in respite care costs $675.50 per fortnight, or $48.25 per day.

You will also be asked to pay a booking fee of 25% of the total fee for your stay in respite care. This is a pre-payment of the respite care fees, and not an extra payment.

What is respite care?

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. Respite care gives you the opportunity to take a break, knowing that the person you care for is in good hands. Respite can mean anything from a regular visit at home to a stay of a few weeks in a care centre. 

The person I care for is living with dementia. Are there any suitable respite services?

People living with dementia can access all types of respite services offered by Amana Living. In particular, you may want to consider one of our three specialist clubs for ongoing, regular daytime respite.

We find that club visits are equally beneficial to carers and those in their care. Our clients have a wonderful time, socialising with others, gardening, cooking, relaxing or going on outings.

Explore the Dementia Care section of this site to find out more about services tailored for you.

How much does respite cost?

The cost will depend on the type of respite care you choose and your eligibility for Government support. Check the pricing tabs for each centre or service to find out more.

How do I find out if I’m eligible for respite care?

Depending on your needs and preferences, you may be eligible for Government-subsidised home care or day respite services. We can help you find out what services are available to you and ensure you receive the best care package.

To find out if you are eligible for residential care centre respite, you must have been assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) during the last 12 months. To arrange an assessment, contact your GP.

Why would I choose Amana Living respite services?
