    “I just loved it. The food was good. The service was excellent. The gardens were lovely. My room was heaven. The other residents were so nice to me. What a lovely place you have.  What more can I say? Thank you!”


    Resthaven understands and values the important role of carers in supporting their relatives and spouses as they age and are no longer fully independent.

    Sometimes, a carer needs to attend to other activities, or go on holidays. Respite enables a carer to remain healthy, in their caring role longer, and it enables you both to have a wider social life.

    By joining the Resthaven residential community as a respite client, you are able to participate in lifestyle activities and other aspects of life at Resthaven.

    Residential respite is a great introduction to residential care.

    Residential respite accommodation is available at all Resthaven aged care homes for a minimum of two (2) weeks. Bookings are essential.
