Respite activities can include:
leisure activities such as playing cards or going for walks
social activities such as going out for a coffee
activities in your local community
personal care tasks such as help in the bathroom.
How to apply
The level of support a carer is eligible for is based on an assessment of the person being cared for. To find out how the person being cared for can apply for services, visit Access aged care services.
If you already receive these services from the City of Boroondara, you can contact our Active Ageing Services.
