Bendigo Respite Services assist carers in taking regular breaks from their at times challenges circumstances. They may be experiencing difficulties balancing their employment, study or leisure time with their care responsibilities and need time to recharge.

Carers do not need to be living with the person they are caring for to be eligible for the program.

The program also provides a stimulating environment for the person being cared for. Bendigo Respite Services enables clients to meet and socialise with others through enjoyable activities that aim to maintain physical and emotional wellbeing.

Flexible social programs, including centre-based activities and community outings, are tailored to support individual needs with a focus on positive ageing.

Bendigo Respite Services are available to people living in the community who are:
• over the age of 65, or over 50 for Indigenous Australins
• living with dementia/memory loss or other age-related challenges
• assisted by a carer

For information about eligibility and referrals contact Bendigo Respite Services today.
