Respite

Through respite care we offer help, care and assistance – as and when it’s needed. Often it’s to help someone get back on their feet after a fall, illness or hospital stay. And other times it’s so that carers can have a break.

With Rockpool’s Residential Respite Care, you can have the peace of mind that your family is being cared for in a vibrant environment that is safe, secure and inclusive. It is a place where warm, friendly and down-to-earth staff provide the medical care and living assistance needed, along with friendship and company.

Nurturing and enhancing our residents connection to family and friends allows them to live happier, more fulfilling lives.

A much needed break

Caring for a loved one or family member can be very rewarding. But, it can also be mentally, emotionally and physically exhausting. As a carer, it is important to look after yourself. It is okay to need a break. Also, it is okay to take time for yourself.

Getting back on their feet

Sometimes people need extra care and assistance as they recover from a fall, illness, injury or hospital stay. Rockpool is the ideal environment to help you or your loved one recover and regain your strength.

Experience the Rockpool lifestyle

Moving to Residential Care is always a harrowing experience. Moving from a home full of memories and comfort to a strange environment (even one where the care, companionship, activities, medical supervision, nutrition and independence is first class) is difficult at any age. No one likes change. Respite Care is often a very good step to provide a small taste of what is possible. A chance to overcome the many misconceptions held about Residential Aged Care and realise that life might have another exciting chapter after all!
