The respite centre gives mum​
what we cannot give – six hours​ of mental stimulation, time with​ people similar to herself in age​ and health, and a safe and happy​ environment where she feels and​ is, independent from us.​

Carer Support

We’re here to support you to take a break, rest and recharge.

Importance of self-care

Caring for a loved one can take a lot of energy, both physically and emotionally. To care for someone to your full ability, you also need to look after yourself. This means making sure you eat well, exercise and take time to do the things you enjoy and give you a sense of identity – this could be work, study, volunteering or simply some ‘me time’ to just relax and run some personal errands. When you’re a full-time carer, finding this time can seem impossible, but we are here to help.


While we could never replace you, we can provide experienced and qualified respite staff to help support you. Our day respite centres allow carers to take a break with the peace of mind that their loved ones are being cared for, and engaged, in appropriate, enjoyable activities.

Counselling and mentorship 

Anglicare appreciates that many carers can experience stress being responsible for a loved one’s safety, accommodation or medical requirements. It can also be difficult to deal with both the subtle and dramatic changes in a loved one’s behaviour. In the majority of cases carers often have to juggle the role of a carer around work, family and social commitments.​​

As a carer we know that often the last person you think of is yourself. We’re here to support you with any challenges you may be facing but also to just have a chat and see how you’re going. We run regular education and mentoring programs, group meet ups for carers and counselling services to help you take care of yourself and your loved ones.

The staff are fantastic. We are​
enormously grateful for the wonderful service provided by Anglicare. It has enabled us to keep mum at home with her family and still retain a degree of independence for her and for ourselves.​
