Flexible Respite – GHA Short Stays

Tailored and flexible short stays

GHA’s flexible approach to respite offers the chance for people living with dementia to engage socially, plus explore new opportunities for meaning and purpose through interactions and experiences outside their usual daily routine. For support partners, it provides the opportunity to set aside time to pause, reset, and look after their own wellbeing.

Flexible short stays include a personalised stay in one of our homes, with a choice of different stay durations to best suit you.

Following your stay, you’ll also have access to our Demystifying Dementia educational sessions for families and support partners, to further support you to live well with dementia, and have a smoother transition to home.

Flexible Respite can be government funded through NDIS or HCP – any unspent HCP funds can be used toward a Flexible Respite short stay.

Flexible Short Stay Eligibility Assessment

To assess eligibility and allow us to determine the best GHA home and type of stay, an in-person assessment is required prior to any short stay at a cost of $375. This initial assessment with the Social Workers and Registered Nurse from our Group Homes Australia team happens within a Resident’s own home where possible. The purpose of the assessment is to build a relationship, learn about the Resident and their family’s life and what makes them unique, as well as gather an understanding of their care needs. The information from the assessment informs our Homemakers to be able to welcome the new resident and their family to their new home. Connecting residents within the home so they can benefit from the social and positive engagement with one another will depend on who you are as an individual.
