Short and medium term respite care.
Village Glen Aged Care Residences also has the benefit of being able to offer individuals residential respite care, both on a planned and emergency basis.
Respite care benefits the resident by giving them an experience of residential care which can help for future planning, enhancing opportunities for socialising and supporting their carer by giving them a break for a short period of time which in turn makes staying at home more sustainable in the longer term. Respite care can occur for a couple of days, or for a number of weeks. As a respite resident you are treated to the same high standards of service our permanent residents enjoy and are assisted to engage in our busy social calendar and to socialise and meet new people, all while supported by our caring staff. Residential respite care can be accessed up to 63 days each financial year and this can be extended in lots of 21 days if an assessment finds that the extra time is required. Respite care can be a great way to support both the resident and the carer.
Day Respite Centre
Because carers deserve a break too.
Village Glen operates a Day Respite Centre within the Aged Care Residences in Capel Sound and is a great alternative to home respite. Currently the Day Respite Centre is open Tuesday to Friday. Our Aged Care Residences in Mornington offers Day Respite Services.
We recognise caring for your loved one is rewarding, but can also be hard work and carers deserve a break to give themselves a little TLC or attend to their own health needs, which is why our Day Respite care is a great option. We offer a specialty activity program, physio centre, day spa, hairdresser, café, sports bar and live entertainment. It is a safe and caring environment and a great place to meet new friends. Spending time at the Day Respite Centre can be funded privately or through Carer Support Services or a Home Care Package. In addition to day respite, we offer overnight or weekly stays.
