Whether you need a little extra support at home or are considering moving into permanent care Karinya provides respite (short-term) care. Karinya offers high levels of nursing and healthcare support for people with various care needs as well as specialist care requirements.
We aim to provide families and carers with a break and to recharge their batteries whilst knowing their loved ones are receiving the very best of care from our dedicated team of staff.
Respite care is available for periods of up to nine weeks per financial year.
Advance bookings need to be made for respite care to ensure availability as numbers are limited. Karinya can only accept applications for respite following an assessment by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). Referral to ACAT for assessment may be made via consultation with your general practitioner or by contacting the myagedcare.gov.au website.
Following assessment by ACAT, please contact either our Care Manager, Carol Saunders or our administration office on (08) 9881 1677 to find out more about admission to Karinya.
Current fees for Respite Care are available from our administration office or from the myagedcare.gov.au website.
