Respite Care

Family members who act as caregivers for children and adults with disabilities can become overwhelmed with all the work and emotional support. Our respite care service allows them to take some time off from their duty and work on their own well-being. We take over the entire caregiving schedule, and it acts as a welcome change for the person receiving the service.

The Importance of Respite Care

Respite care is not just a service; it’s a lifeline for caregivers who devote themselves tirelessly to their loved ones’ well-being. Our respite care services provide families with a much-needed break, allowing them to rest, recharge, and address their own needs. This temporary relief is essential for maintaining the physical and emotional health of caregivers, reducing burnout and stress. For our participants, respite care offers a change in routine, the chance to interact with new caregivers, and engagement in various activities tailored to their interests and needs. It promotes socialization, personal growth, and independence. At Birch Care, we believe that respite care is a crucial pillar of comprehensive support, ensuring that both our participants and their devoted families can lead healthier, more balanced lives.

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme offered by the Australian Government. It offers funding to individuals with disabilities to provide for the expenses related to disability. It allows individuals with disabilities to get funded for reasonable needs that help in capacity building. It is independent of the Disability Support Pension and universal healthcare. The NDIS offers three types of support funding including Core Supports, Capital Supports and Capacity-Building. The core supports include disability transport, social support, etc. The capital supports are offered for high-cost assistive technology or refurbishment of house or vehicle. The capacity-building support is provided for assisting with the development of life skills.

We have vast experience in working with people with disabilities of all age groups. All our professionals are intensively trained in meeting the needs of people with a variety of disabilities. We have worked with both children and adults in the age group of 7 to 65 years with physical, mental, or speech impairment. We provide assistance with mobility, social and community participation, companionship, domestic tasks, overnight support, post-operative care, school holiday programs, and more. You can trust us because we make sure that the participant stays safe and comfortable throughout the activities and caregiving methods. Contact us today to discuss your needs in detail.

Our disability support workers are recruited after careful assessments and undergo the required training to deal with people with disabilities with patience and care. They work diligently throughout the day and provide support every step of the way to fulfil the desires of the participant. Our aim is to brighten up their lives with unparalleled assistance that makes them confident and keeps them motivated to do better. Our group activities help them to get involved with other people and build friendships and strong bonds that help in meeting social needs. We improve the learning curve with educational and skill-building activities that also aid in decision-making and problem-solving.

Children with disabilities need special care and attention as they are emotionally vulnerable and dealing with their uniqueness. However, every child is different, and our support workers approach them with a flexible and open mindset so that they can communicate freely. We aim to bring them out of their shell and enjoy life like other children through a variety of activities and tasks. From assisting in daily living tasks to building life skills, we work with them as friends and supporters. They can lean on us in times of need and get all the desired help without any inhibitions. We aim to develop their personalities in a holistic manner.
