disAbility Support Services

Since 1988 Interchange Shoalhaven has championed support for people in the Shoalhaven to access meaningful respite opportunities that connect individuals with their communities and interests across the region.
Please peruse our website for information on all the services and programs we offer and feel free to “Contact Us” if you require more information.

Group Respite Care (also known as ‘short-term care’) is a form of support for you and your carer. It gives your carer the opportunity to attend to everyday activities while allowing you to interact with others through Interchange Programs.

Group Respite may be for a few hours or for longer periods, depending on your needs and the organisations programs, the needs of the person who cares for you, your eligibility and what services are available in your area.

Check out the programs currently being run by Interchange Shoalhaven.

Respite

Respite care (also known as ‘short-term care’) is a form of support for you and your carer. It gives your carer the opportunity to attend to everyday activities or go on holidays while ensuring your needs are supported. Respite care may be given informally by family, friends or neighbours, or by formal respite services. Things like respite care may mean your carer can continue in caring for you longer.

Respite care may be for a few hours or days or for longer periods, depending on your needs, the needs of the person who cares for you, your eligibility and what services are available in your area. It can happen in your home or at facilities such as an overnight respite cottage, a day centre or residential care facility.
