    Home Care Packages

    Resthaven’s Home Care Packages are approved through My Aged Care. The Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) will assess and approve services for each individual.

    Referrals for an ACAT assessment can be made by older people, their carers, family members, health professionals or community service providers.

    Contact Resthaven on 1300 13 66 33 to request an ACAT assessment through our facilitated referral service.

    Where an older person has a carer (spouse, friend, relative), and the carer requests assistance to have a break from their caring role, the older person may be eligible to access community respite services.

    Centre based group respite services are available at all Resthaven Community Services sites and can include group activities to encourage social interaction and may include group excursions. Carers and family members can take part in the activities or leave the person under their care in the care of trained Resthaven staff.

    To apply, please contact Resthaven Community Services on 1300 13 66 33.

    Older people who are assessed as needing allied health and/or therapy services can attend health and wellbeing classes and therapies at one of our Therapy Centres. To apply, please contact Resthaven Community Services on 1300 13 66 33.
