In respite care, we can include various home care services

For seniors to support individuals and provide a temporary break for caregivers. While the specific services offered can vary depending on the provider and individual needs, here are some standard services that may be included in respite care:

During respite care,

During respite care, our team in NSW aged care will take over the responsibilities of providing care for you, allowing you and your carer some much-needed time off. You can use this break for relaxation, socialising, and pursuing activities or hobbies that bring you joy. Our professional and personalised care meets all your needs while under our supervision.

By planning your respite care

By planning your respite care, you can have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is receiving the right home care services and support they need while you take a well-deserved break. Our team can work with you to determine the duration of respite care that suits your requirements, whether it’s a few hours, days, or weeks.

Here are some key points to highlight about this service:

Planned and Emergency Respite:

 We can plan short-term accommodation with host home families for scheduled and emergency respite care. This means that caregivers can have peace of mind knowing that respite care is available when needed, whether prearranged or in response to unexpected circumstances.

During the respite period or care services for seniors, your loved one can stay with one of your host home families. Host home families are trained and experienced in providing support, ensuring your loved one’s needs are met during their stay.

Host home families offer personalised care, home health services, and support based on individual needs and preferences, ranging from assistance with daily activities, medication management, social engagement, and other required support. The goal is to ensure your loved one receives the necessary care in a warm, nurturing environment.

Staying with a host home family provides a home-like environment that promotes a sense of belonging and comfort. It allows your loved one to experience the routines and activities of a typical home, fostering a sense of normalcy and familiarity.

While your loved one stays with a host home family, there is professional oversight and support from your team. The care for senior citizens at home that Smarter Living Choices provides ensures that the respite care is well-coordinated and that any necessary assistance or guidance is readily available.


If you need clarification on your eligibility for respite care, Smarter Living Choices can provide guidance and help you understand the criteria. Eligibility can vary depending on age, disability, medical conditions, and caregiver support needs.

It’s important to note that we can customise the specific services provided in respite care based on the individual’s needs and preferences. The goal is to provide a temporary break for caregivers while ensuring the well-being and comfort of the individual receiving care.

Don’t hesitate to contact our senior care in Orange team at Smarter Living Choices to discuss your respite care requirements. We are committed to delivering flexible and personalised respite care services that best meet your needs and offer the support you need to continue providing care for your loved one.
