Flexible respite services for people with dementia and their carers
Information for consumers
Flexible respite considers the needs of the person with dementia as central, alongside the needs of the carer. This information will assist in identifying the different types of respite services that are available, why they are important to both the person living with dementia and their carers, and provides tips on how to make the most out of respite services.
Information for service providers
The resource for service providers argues the need for change in our approach to providing respite services. It provides the key features of flexible respite as described by consumers, and provides examples of good practice across Australia.
