- Support to attend dialysis
- After dialysis care.
Respite (STA) is a practical solution for clients who require temporary supports out of home, while allowing your carer to have short-term breaks from their caring responsibilities. This support can be accessed at flexible intervals for up to 14 days at a time, dependent on your needs and requirements.
Respite Needs And Cost
The cost of respite differs greatly between individuals as it depends on:
- Their needs
- The length of their stay
- The level of support needed
- How inclusive they would like the service.
At a basic level, in-home respite is generally the more affordable option. In-home respite only requires support services and not accommodation charges. However, out-of-home respite is slightly more expensive as it includes the cost of the support services and a portion of your accommodation cost. Sometimes, people opt for out-of-home respite as a reason to go and try new things as a means to reach their goals.
The amount of respite care can vary depending on the individual, their needs, and their situation. Sometimes your primary caregiver may only need a few hours, a day or week. At other times, this could extend to overnight or a few weeks.
