St Hilarion Aged Care offers low care respite services which serve a number of purposes. Firstly, they provide an opportunity for the carer, who is normally a family member, to have a short break from their carer duties to recharge and have some "down time." This is generally recognised as being useful in enhancing the carer-beneficiary relationship by helping to alleviate tension levels which can accumulate over time for all persons involved unless there is an opportunity for respite.
The other major benefit of respite is that it provides an opportunity for a potential future resident of St Hilarion Aged Care to experience life as one of our residents - to enjoy the company of new friends, to share in communal meals and to participate in a wide range of interesting activities of their choosing.
If you are looking to obtain respite services, you are welcome to call our staff at Villa St Hilarion Fulham on 8235 9055 to determine if a place is available and to ask any questions that you may have.
