Person Centred Care at the Heart of it!

Why Respite Care Could Be Valuable to You

Caregiving for family members or companions who have disabilities can be rewarding and demanding. It can be challenging for caregivers to ask for assistance, but it’s crucial to be able to step back so you can have a break. For people with physical, intellectual, and psycho-social disabilities in the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, and Raymond Terrace regions, Solid Holistic Care offers both short-term and medium-term housing for respite care services.

What is Respite Care?

Both the person receiving care and the caregiver are given an organised, brief break through respite care. For a few days or weeks, you could benefit from having someone else do the caring duties. Caregivers can often become burned out emotionally and physically. To be better caregivers, it is crucial that they can take a break. Respite care is intended to provide caregivers a brief break. You can arrange for periodic respite care, or you might prefer to have it more frequently.

Types of Respite Care

Supported Independent Living Respite Care

You might think about Supported Independent Living respite care if the person you are caring for requires assistance every day. This entails a brief stay in one of our houses, while you take a break of a few days or longer. Supported Independent Living respite care may be prearranged or required in an urgent need. Solid Holistic Care offers short- and medium-term respite housing and services in a number of sites throughout Newcastle and the Hunter.

Emergency Respite

When necessary, Solid Holistic Care can offer emergency respite care. This could be a primary caregiver’s passing, illness, or another urgent circumstance that makes it difficult to provide the necessary support at home.

In-Home Respite Care

Your loved ones can receive care from our support staff members in the comfort of their own home, allowing them to stay put while still receiving all the attention they need.

Why Solid Holistic Care?

Picking the appropriate respite care provider can be challenging. Leaving your loved ones in the care of an unfamiliar person or in an unusual setting causes stress for many family caregivers. Take your time to choose a provider you are comfortable with. At Solid Holistic Care we can provide suitable short-term care options for parents of disabled children, people with disabilities, and other caregivers. We can provide short term care for a couple of days, a couple of weeks or more if needed. If you live in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Raymond Terrace, and Maitland regions, Solid Holistic can help you find appropriate respite care in our houses to ensure your needs are met.
