Respite

Kaloma offers temporary care on a short term basis to enable the primary carer to have a break from the caring role –  an opportunity to recharge and rest.   Whilst caring for someone can be deeply fulfilling it can also be emotionally demanding. We encourage you to plan ahead as respite bookings can be very popular with bookings made well into the future to secure a holiday or event.

Eligible older persons are entitled to a total of 63 days respite care in a financial year.  We urge you to make a booking well in advance as respite is very popular and can be booked a year or more in advance.  We recommend making regular bookings so that you as a Carer you can look forward to a break from the caring role.

Respite residents return to the community at the completion of the respite booking.
