Take a break and recharge
We understand the changing needs of families and know that sometimes carers need a rest. At times, we all need to renew our energy and attend to our own health requirements.
Royal Freemasons has short term respite care available so carers can take a break, safe in the knowledge that their loved one is being looked after in a secure, comfortable ‘second home’.
Making this step can be emotionally challenging, so we invite you to give us a call to have a conversation about this opportunity and to find the closest respite care for your loved one.

Our staff will be there alongside you throughout your respite stay, providing you with care and guidance to navigate the complex aged care environment.
