In-Home Respite

Burnie Brae has a strong team of staff who provide care for clients who are socially isolated or need a hand from time to time. Flexible respite either at home or within the community can give carers a break from their caring role. This can be in the form of companionship, access to shopping or medical appointments, social outings, assistance with approved household duties, and assistance with some personal care tasks.
