Respite care supports the care giver and care recipient by giving you both a break for a short period of time.

What is Residential Respite Care?

Respite Residential Care at Beaufort and Skipton Health Service is short-term care available at both our Delama and Brigadoon facilities. Regular breaks are important for both yourself and the person caring for you.

How long can I stay in Residential Respite Care?

Generally stays can be from a few days up to a few weeks at one time.

How does Residential Respite Care work?

When you receive respite care you are entitled to the same care and support services as permanent residents of the Hostel, which include:

  • Your own room
  • Meals
  • Laundry done for you
  • Social activities
  • Personal and care needs met


You are charged the basic daily care fee for each day of your stay. The basic daily care fee is determined by the Australian Government and is reviewed twice each year.

How do I book Residential Respite Care?

Everyone entering respite care must have respite approval granted by the Australian Government by obtaining an ACAS assessment. The government approves up to 63 days per financial year for respite care which can be used over the course of the year.

Once you have approval or for more information about respite care please call our Residential Care Coordinator on 5349 1647.

Our Residential Care Coordinator will speak with you about your individual circumstances to identify what will best suit your needs.
