Lavender House offers families and carers the rare opportunity to have a break from their important and demanding role of caring for an individual, while knowing that the person they care for is with a skilled, experienced and qualified staff member with whom they have a familiar relationship.

What we provide:

  • An opportunity for carers to take a well-deserved break from their role
  • An opportunity for the carer to rest and rejuvenate so they can return to their caregiving duties refreshed and ready to give their best
  • Improved opportunities for growth and development for the individual in care
  • Improved employment opportunity for the parent or carer
  • Improved health and wellness for the carer and the carers family
  • Improved patience for the carer
  • The security and knowledge that an individual is cared for by familiar staff in a safe and friendly environment
  • An opportunity for families and carers to ensure respite is a regularly scheduled, important part of the caregiving program
  • Elimination of social isolation and depression issues for the carer
  • The prevention of costly out-of-home placement
