In-Home Respite Care

In-home respite care supports the quality of living of the client and their families, whanau and people providing on-going support.

These are services funded by the Ministry of Health or the DHB to give carers, family and whanau a rest, and ensure that the person they care for gets the care and support they need in the meantime.

Respite support is based on your needs; respite support may be planned so that respite care is accessed on a regular basis for a pre-arranged time period, or it may also be unplanned. Respite is available in times of emergency or unforeseen event.
