Take a break – respite
Feel like you’re on the brink of burnout?
Have a ‘to do’ list loaded with things you never get done?
Would your loved one enjoy spending time with other caring humans?
Respite works for everyone
If you care for someone with a disability, respite makes caring more manageable by giving you time and space to relax and recharge.
If you have a disability, respite expands your circle of interesting others.
Our respite service works both ways
We’ll care for your loved one at home for the hours or the days you need to take time out to care for you.
If you’re worried about taking a break, start small. Take an hour or so and see how that works. All good? Build up to longer sessions.
Out and about care
We’ll help your loved one enjoy their favourite activities, their choice, our support. We might swim in the pool, see the latest movie, go to a match, visit a library, the list is endless.
If your loved one wants to hang out with friends, attend a class, or spend time in a community centre, we’ll be their chauffeur and, if they ask us. their supporter.
Give yourself and your loved one a genuine break. Try not to visit or check-in too often during your respite time.
‘I enjoyed my stay so much I have never left….’
‘I came to Mirrors on Respite in February and enjoyed my stay so much; I’ve never left. They adapted my home to work for me, and I’m still here today.
There is a wonderful feeling of family living here. I consider this to be one of the most contented and happiest times of my life.
Need help to live your best life?
Can you schedule respite care to fit our schedule?
Absolutely. We will work with you to provide respite care on days and at times that fit your own and your loved one’s routines, requirements, and lifestyles.
How do I know my loved one will be safe?
We understand how unnerving the prospect of leaving your loved one in someone else’s care can be. Even if your respite carers are as kind and skilled experienced as ours, it’s natural to feel apprehensive.
We’d love it if you could think about respite care like this:
A break helps protects you from stress and overwhelm, and exhaustion. It reduces the risk of lapses in care that can happen if you burn out.
Respite also lets your loved one interact with other lovely humans who have their interests at heart.
