Respite is an important part of CareWest’s disability services as it helps keep the relationship strong between both carers and the person they care for. If you think you could do with some support or a break from your caring duties, we offer a range of respite options that could suit you.
While caring for someone with a disability can be rewarding, it can also be very demanding. At CareWest, we believe it’s important for both the carer and the person they care for to have a break so you can keep the relationship strong. Our Respite Program offers group, peer or individual support for people aged 0 – 65 with disabilities and their carers, people like you. We are committed to working with each individual and catering to your specific needs, making sure we meet your values, beliefs and cultural expectations. Our motivated, dedicated and professional staff will offer you the best possible care and ensure your comfort during your time in respite. We run a variety of different support services from afterschool care, to young adult peer support, to afternoon care for adults in day programs as well as individually tailored services. Whatever you need, we will help you. With two facilities, Anson Cottage and Dalton Respite Centre, in Orange adding to the units in Cobar, Nyngan, Bourke and Lightning Ridge, we also have the facilities to support people with physically high needs and soon we will be able to provide twenty-four hour respite for those who need it most.
