Short term accommodation – Respite While caring for a loved one is a rewarding experience, it can also be daunting and often unexpected. Also known as ‘short-term care’, respite is a form of support for carers, which allows them to take a break from their caring duties while ensuring peace of mind that their loved one’s care needs continue to be met by health care professionals.
The IDSS Difference: At IDSS we like to do things differently. As a private respite service, we aim to deliver a more personalised respite experience, allowing care requirements and personal preferences to take priority.
Participants remain in control over how and when care is delivered Lifestyle mentors are available onsite 24 hours per day. Respite can be provided in your own home or at one of our partner locations. IDSS Respite includes all meals, outings and activities, as well as lifestyle and diversional therapy programs if requested.
After School Support Are you a working parent or just a busy parent? IDSS can collect your child from school, and provide an afternoon of entertainment and activities and then bring them home ready for the evening routine.
