Supporting you to support them
Our friendly and experienced team members assist in finding the best respite for cares, safe in the knowledge that your loved one’s personalised care needs will continue to be met. Whether that means one of our team checking in on a daily basis or staying overnight, our professional team will make sure that your loved one feels relaxed, safe and comfortable in their own routine so that you can get the rest you deserve.
As part of Be’s mission to ‘make lives the best they can be’, Cultural Companions was birthed with the intention of providing additional support and choice of services to older Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds and their carers. The program aims to provide services that are inclusive for people of all cultural groups and languages, recognising that older people display the same diversity of characteristics and life experiences as the broader population and need to receive services which reflect their diverse needs. The program operates as Centre-Based Respite connecting like-minded people through engaging and supportive activities.
We can assist with:
- Help around the home
- Personal care
- Medication assist/ prompts
- Community access/ Transport
- Social engagement/ activities
- Overnight in-home respite care
- Arranging residential respite care
Respite for carers is so important. Based on your individual needs our Care team will work with you to develop a personalised flexible support plan that’s right for you and your family.
