RESPITE CARE SERVICES
Flexible Respite Care in Newcastle, Maitland & Lake Macquarie NSW
Providing care for loved ones or friends with disability can be both rewarding and challenging. Although it can often be difficult for carers to ask for help, it’s important to be able to take some time out for yourself. Solid Holistic Care provides temporary respite care services in the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland and Port Stephens regions for people with physical, intellectual and psycho-social disability.
In-Home Respite Care
Our support workers can provide care to your loved ones in their own home giving individuals the opportunity to remain in their own environment and still receive all the care they require.
Residential Respite Care
Some individuals and families might choose to have a mini-holiday with the individual having a supported home away from home. Solid Holistic Care has respite accommodation and supports in several locations across Newcastle and the Hunter which could be suitable for your individual circumstances.
