Gippsland Lakes Community Health has zero tolerance towards child abuse and is committed to establishing and maintaining child inclusive, safe and child friendly environments.
We are committed to inclusive practice and welcome feedback on our services, in particular from Aboriginal, LGBTI and Disability communities.
We acknowledge our work in the community takes place on the traditional lands of the Gunaikurnai people of Gippsland. Gippsland Lakes Community Health respectfully recognises elders both past and present. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are warned that this website may contain images of deceased persons.
Caring for a loved one is very tiring and demanding work, both physically and emotionally. Carers, like anyone, need time off for a number of reasons such as attending to shopping, appointments, family matters or quite simply to have a well-earned break. Some carers find support helpful over the holiday periods when their loved ones are not attending childcare, kindergarten, schools, or day service activities.
We can help carers of a person with a disability aged from 0 - 65 years take a break by offering short term Flexible Respite. Respite is provided by trained support workers; it may take place in home or be an out of home activity. Group Activities are encouraged. Everyone’s circumstances are unique; there are many options on how carers can take a break.
For further information or to discuss your respite needs please contact Margie, our disability care coordinator, on 5155 8300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org #yourhealthourcommitment #since1975 ... See MoreSee Less
