Respite Care to Suit You

 

If you’re a carer, we understand that having the responsibility for someone’s ongoing care and support isn’t always easy. Our respite services give you the opportunity to take a break while ensuring the person you look after is given quality care. We offer a range of respite care services that are tailored to your personal needs and goals.

 

 

Community Access

TAG 5 can help you to access your community and use services including the bank and library as well as participate in recreational sport and social activities. We assist you to meet your goals and build a network of relationships within your community so that you have a safe and supportive environment to grow in. We require a minimum of four hours for this support to ensure you gain the most out of our services.

Daily Activities

If you have a disability and still live in the family home, we can help you with daily living tasks including hygiene, chores and leisure activities. This type of support can help to give carers some much needed relief and time to care for themselves. Support is given individually and is predominantly provided at home but can be provided in other locations. We require a minimum of four hours for this support to ensure you gain the most out of our services.

Supported Independent Living

If you are an adult with a disability and want to live as independently as possible, we can assist you with daily tasks, help you to build skills and access the community. Our staff provide permanent home-based care in the housing option of your choice and provide assistance according to the level of support you require. Support can be provided in a shared or individual arrangement.

Short Term Accommodation

We know that sometimes the unexpected happens and as a carer you may need help at short notice. In a situation like this, we can look after those in your care while you get back on track. TAG 5 has a short term accommodation house where we provide full-time support for the person you care for. This service is available for periods of 24 hours up to 14 days. We provide assistance with daily personal care, food and any other negotiated activities. If more permanent accommodation is required, we can organise this while we work with you to maintain your routines.
