Frail Aged Respite Booking Service

Short term residential respite care supports carers and the frail aged people they care for by giving you both a break for a short period of time. It can help give you time and space to do things independently, or help carers attend to travel, work or other commitments by ensuring the person they care for is in good hands.

Carers ACT provides a respite booking service to take the stress out of finding a short-term residential respite bed. Using our respite booking service, we provide you with a single point of contact for aged care facilities across Canberra and Queanbeyan, so you don’t have to call around to find a respite vacancy, and we can also connect you with support for at-home care after a respite stay.

To book respite (or if you wish to become a respite service provider and receive bookings from us), please call Julie on (02) 6296 9988 or any fo the Carer Gateway team on 1800 422 737.
