The Employed Carers Respite Program assists people who are employed or studying and also provide help on a regular basis to a family member or friend in the community who is over 65 years (or over 50 if indigenous) or has diagnosed dementia.
If you regularly assist someone and find that it impacts on your employment or study commitments, we can support you. The types of assistance we can provide include:
Centre Based Respite
Flexible Respite (for example in home respite, meal preparation or shopping assistance etc.).
