What is residential respite care?

Residential respite care is 24/7 care in a residential care village for a short period of time. At RFBI, respite residents are given a fully furnished private room with ensuite and provided around the clock care. Respite residents are able to enjoy all the facilities and services offered by the Village and are encouraged to participate in lifestyle activities and events scheduled during their stay.

All our residents enjoy freshly cooked meals prepared onsite by our professional catering team. Prior to admission, our team will discuss with you any particular likes, dislikes and allergies to ensure there is always something your loved one would like.

Respite residents live alongside current residents, which helps to foster connections and ensure that they feel part of our community.

How do I access residential respite care?

Everyone entering respite care will need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). Once a respite approval is granted, they will be eligible for up to 63 days per financial year of respite care. This can be taken over the course of the year. Extensions may be granted with further approval from your aged care assessor.

Our friendly team is here to help. Our team will speak with you about your individual circumstances and encourage you to come in for a tour to familiarise yourself with our village and to meet our team. We can also help coordinate your ACAT on your behalf.

Call us on 1800 181 959 or contact your nearest RFBI residential aged care village.
