Theodora’s Place day respite centre is funded by the Australian Government through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme.
The program provides respite for carers of:
- frail aged Australians aged 65 and over (or 50 and over for indigenous people)
- people living with dementia, and
- people living with dementia and challenging behaviours.
The aim of this program is to support carers by offering respite care for their loved one, to enable carers to take a break from their caring role. We offer flexible hours of attendance, and high staff to client ratio, and a wide range of stimulating activities. Emergency overnight respite is also available.
Theodora’s Place operates 9am – 5pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Please contact the Respite Coordinator on (02) 6283 4999 for further information and to arrange an assessment.
