Respite Care

We know looking after a loved one is rewarding, but every now and then it is important to take care of yourself. Five Good Friends can step in to allow family and carers to take a break, knowing their loved ones are in good hands.

We offer flexible 12-hour and 24-hour in-home respite, all supervised by our Community Managers and our Remote Care Monitoring technology, Lookout. Respite can be offered short-term or long-term, and you maintain direct access to the individual carers to ensure your peace of mind.

In some cases, day respite is the perfect outcome for both families and those in need of care. We can arrange a suitable day respite provider that meets your needs. We can also arrange one of our Helpers to transport to and from the day respite program, ensuring you get the most of your day off as possible.

Respite accommodation can be arranged through our preferred partners if in-home respite is not appropriate.
