Respite Care

At Evolve Rehabilitation we offer respite care to allow caregivers a short break from their continuous caring responsibilities.

Respite care is available for ACC individuals and is on a case-by-case arrangement through our facilities. Our Facility Coordinators work with the caregiver to understand the persons disability, requirements and level of support required over the period they may stay in one of our facilities. 

ACC clients who are accepted to respite care with Evolve can receive a minimum stay of three weeks every year. This support can be provided over three consecutive weeks or provided over the year, allowing caregivers to book time that suits them and their needs.

What is respite care

Respite care provides caregivers a short break from their continuous caring responsibilities. The person experiencing disabilities can stay for short periods up to three weeks each year allowing their caregiver a break.

Can anyone with a disability access respite care with Evolve?

Respite care at Evolve is not available for all people experiencing disabilities. We provide respite care for individuals covered by ACC and is on an individual case selection. We work collaboratively with caregivers seeking to place their loved one in respite care to determine if an Evolve Rehabilitation facility is the best option.

Process for accessing our respite care

We work with caregivers to determine if respite care at an Evolve Rehabilitation facility is right for the person in their care. Through an individual case assessment, we will determine the level of care required by our team, and any funding that may be available.
