Respite Care

2015 St Annas Entrance (3)

Respite accommodation is available for short or long term stays, depending on your needs.  Respite care is available to older people who have been assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) as eligible for Residential Respite Services.

We offer a minimum of 14 days respite up to the approved 63 days per financial year, for all residents approved for respite care.  Shorter periods of respite care allows family/friend carers some time out to take the opportunity for a holiday or break.

St. Anna’s have rooms permanently reserved for respite accommodation.  All the rooms are carpeted, secure/lockable, have windows and are modern and comfortable, with a private en-suite, built in wardrobe and cupboards.  Each room has a  TV, refrigerator and 24 hour call service linked to our on-site staff.  There is a temperature-controlled reverse-cycle split system air conditioner (heating and cooling) in every room with individual controls, staff may assist as needed.

Whilst staying at St. Anna’s, think of it as your home away from home, therefore there is no set wake up or bed time for residents. Respite residents, family and friends are welcome to take part in all activities, outings and functions, with open visiting hours.

Three meals are provided daily in each dining area, as well as morning and afternoon tea.  Kitchenettes are found throughout the facility, allowing residents to make tea and coffee as they please.  Meals may be enjoyed in your room if preferred.
