The Program is for carers aged 60 and over (45 ATSI) who are caring for a person with disability.
It is designed to provide a break for the carer and great activities in the community for the person we support including:
- In-home, centre based, host family and community access are available depending on personal choice.
- Weekday and weekend care is available to encourage friendships through social interaction within the community.
- Holidays and short breaks away are also popular on this program.
The program is free to attend, but a contribution is needed to pay for activities our clients attend and for meals.
Respite is allocated annually through the Central Coast Respite Allocation Panel consisting of other local respite providers and the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care.
Applications open in January each year for the following financial year.
