Wesley Disability Respite provides carers with the freedom to take a break and a change of scenery for those who they care for. It is a positive and rewarding experience for all involved.
Wesley Disability Respite offers a range of services for people with a disability and their carers. These include:
- emergency respite
- centre based children’s respite
- centre based adult respite
- respite for carers.
We provide pre-planned and emergency respite for people with a disability. The focus of the respite service is to meet the needs of the person and families and carers. The service provides a caring and individually focused environment for people with a disability.
Priority is determined according to greatest need, for example no other/limited support networks or high support needs. Based on the information gained from the referral and needs assessment a score is given to determine priority. One point is added to each person’s score for every month they are on the waiting list.
Wesley Mission’s staff are friendly, respectful and appropriately skilled to offer dignified respite to people with a disability and their carers. Their compassion offers real peace of mind and means those who need to can take a break without guilt, fear or concern.
