Respite at Weeroona
Weeroona specialises in providing respite accommodation for those that require a short-term stay.
We have single bed suites and renovated 2 bed rooms available for respite residents. If you would like to stay in an extra service room while on respite, we can also provide you with a room in our extra service wing, Acacia.
There are several reasons why someone may choose to enter an aged care home as a respite resident. The two main reasons are:
- To give a carer a well-earned break
- To recover from an injury or illness for a short period of time
Residents can access residential respite care for up to 63 days each financial year and is available to anyone who is eligible for an ACAT assessment and has been approved for respite care in a residential aged care home.
