FAQ's

What exactly is respite care?

Respite care gives temporary relief to caregivers, giving them a break from the demand of caring for loved ones. The care can range from a few hours, up to days at a time. It’s a chance for carers to catch up on daily activities or just relax and recharge. 

The Government pays providers a respite subsidy and supplement for providing respite care and eligible carers are entitled to an allocation of respite care each financial year. You can check your respite care allowance balance with Services Australia

At HillView Care we provide respite care on the Gold Coast for residents 65 and over (50 years or older for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people).

The Government pays providers a respite subsidy and supplement for providing respite care.

To receive respite care you need an ACAT, unless it is self-funded, a home care package partner offers to pay or DVA (usually via hospital) pays convalescence care. You can check your respite care allowance balance with Services Australia.

What is emergency respite care?

At HillView Care we provide emergency respite care if carers suddenly can’t continue in their caring role due to an emergency such as illness or hospitalisation. In these circumstances a clinical review is required before the resident accesses respite care. This review can be provided by our care manager upon application. 

Unless you are self-funded, an ACFI clearance is required. The ACFI (Aged Care Funding Instrument) is used to assess where funding is allocated for care.
