Respite Care: short-term help for long-term health
If you live in your own home but need a little extra care in the short term – perhaps to recover from illness, injury or a hospital stay – respite care could be the answer.
At Glengara Care, you can stay in a care apartment for as little as fourteen nights or up to six weeks. This gives you the opportunity to recuperate, away from home, chores, and cooking. By letting us look after you, you can focus on what’s most important– getting better.
What’s more, if your family or loved ones help care for you at home, they’ll also have the chance to recharge and rejuvenate.
“There's always someone on hand when you need help."

"Mum says it’s just like her own home. She treats it as her home, and it is her home, and she doesn’t feel like she’s in any sort of care at all. I think that’s been really good for her because that was a big thing, she wanted to still feel like she was independent."
Tony, relative of Glengara Care resident
