Caring for someone who lives at home and needs a break from their caring role or support from other carers in a similar situation.
The Commonwealth Home Support Program, funded by the Commonwealth Government, enables Astley Care to provide respite care and other support options to carers and the people for whom they care. Respite helps carers take a short break from their caring role. The respite can work in several ways; depending on your requirements and circumstances, we work with you to ensure the support offered meets you and your loved one’s needs.
If you have not already been assessed by My Aged Care, you (or your nominated representative) can call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.
The contact centre staff will ask questions to help them understand your needs and care arrangements to inform the next steps.
Alternatively, you can follow the link below to complete the first stage of the assessment.
Once you have been assessed, let the assessor know you would like to receive services from Astley Care.
