North Shore Elderly Day Care and Respite Care Services for Alzheimer’s and Dementia sufferers
Our Elderly Day Care Service introduces the person suffering from Alzheimer’s or Dementia to BriarGate professional care in a gentle, sensitive and step-by-step manner, starting with one to two days per week and then more if needed. The next step to short-term respite care comes naturally, as a way to give Carers longer breaks.
Day care transport services
Our mini-bus will pick-up the client around 9.00am daily and return them around 3.00pm, depending on location. Alternatively, you can provide your own transport.
During day care, your loved one makes new friends, enjoys our activity program, morning and afternoon teas and a hearty, healthy cooked lunch.
Respite for elderly people with chronic disabilities can result in fewer hospital admissions for acute medical care, extended at-home residency and even improved physical and mental health. Carers for relatives with dementia who use respite care tend to experience lower levels of caregiving-related stress, better personal and family well-being and improved caregiving capability.
At BriarGate, we offer a highly flexible short-term/respite care service that can be custom-designed to cater for individual needs and circumstances. Stay periods can range from one or two days to a week, fortnight, month, or longer. Your loved one will be welcomed into a safe, secure, comfortable and friendly caring environment while you take time out for your family, business, regular job, personal interests or a relaxing and refreshing getaway.
Simply tell us what you need in the way of a single respite period - or a regular respite schedule - and we'll make it happen. Both you and your loved one will feel better for the experience.
