Staying in your own home and maintaining your independence for as long as possible is incredibly important. At BCAC, we understand. That’s why we offer a respite service across all of our facilities.

Respite care can deliver a little extra support to you or your carer when you need it most. Some people simply enjoy the opportunity to relax in the safe, comfortable space that our respite service provides. Whatever your needs, we may be able to help.

To check your eligibility for respite care, you’ll need to obtain an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) assessment from My Aged Care – call 1800 200 422. A person can typically receive up to 63 days of respite care per year. However, if ACAT deems it necessary, extensions of up to 21 days at a time are possible.
