A day respite centre provides both the carer and the people they care for time for themselves. For the carer, it offers a much-needed break to look after themselves and relax. For the people cared for, it offers an engaging and stimulating environment where they are attended to by a dedicated staff of trained aged care services providers.
At Village Glen’s day respite centre in Capel Sound, clients can take part in a range of fun activities. The day respite calendar changes daily, but activities can include walking group, time in the vegetable garden, movies, entertainment, arts and crafts activities, coffee club, and happy hour at Jake’s Bar.
Not only can clients enjoy these social and recreational services but they are also under the care of trained health professionals, making sure they are safe at all times. They can indulge in delicious healthy meals as well, prepared by Village Glen’s team of executive chefs.
