About Aboriginal Respite

Booroongen Djugun Respite Service supports people with a disability by giving regular or short-term breaks for carers and families, providing care in the community, and responding to emergency situations or difficulties.

Respite services are aimed at developing clients’ social and independent living skills and giving ‘time out’ to carers.  Priority is given to people with disabilities who:

.           have a single carer or parent caring for them

.           are assisted by parents, spouses or carers who are elderly

.           are at risk of having to leave the community and enter an aged care facility for care.
