What is Residential Respite Care?
Residential Respite Care is when Olivet Care takes care of the person you care for a short-term period.
Feel at ease knowing your loved one will receive individual care tailored to their specific need. Olivet Care recognizes all individual needs with respect to their dignity, cultural diversity, individuality, integrity, and freedom of choice, in a safe and secure environment.
Respite allows the carer to take a break from their caring role and can be arranged for planned breaks, short holidays, medical procedures, and recovery from illness. It can also be accessed in emergencies.
