Respite Care

If you or a loved one need short-term care or would simply like to experience a Freedom Care Community, respite may be a good option. An aged care assessment (ACAT/ACAS) is not required prior to a respite stay at a Freedom Care Community.

There are 25 Freedom Care Communities across Queensland, Victoria and regional New South Wales offering respite care.

  • A private, fully furnished unit or apartment

  • Pets welcome^
  • Care team onsite 24/7
  • Personal care including showering and dressing
  • Medication management and clinical support
  • Domestic cleaning and laundry

When to consider respite care

  • Needing extra care and support after a hospital stay before returning home
  • Recuperating after a fall or incident at home
  • Caregivers or family members wanting to go on a holiday to recharge
  • Feeling the need to feel secure in a friendly environment to refresh the mind and body
  • If you or a loved one are considering a permanent move to a Freedom Care Community

To qualify for our respite service, residents must have low to medium care needs.

More than just a respite stay

Every respite guest at Freedom is supported by an aged care industry consultant who will personally guide them and their family to ensure they are informed and supported during the move-in process. Our team can also provide guidance regarding the aged care process and completing any forms and applications you might need to complete.

When a respite guest first moves into a Freedom Care Community, our industry liaison consultant introduces the care team and community manager and ensures that the resident is welcomed into the community.


Additional services

We also provide access to a range of additional services on a fee-for-service basis, including:

  • Community health services
  • Hairdressing and beauty
  • Hearing clinic services
  • Physiotherapy and podiatry
