Merton Court now offers Respite Care!

23-Oct-2019
Merton Court will commence offering respite care to our elder community from 4th November 2019.  Merton Court receives numerous requests for respite every year, so it was difficult for us to turn people away, particularly when we have empty beds available.  That ends now!

Merton Court can provide both low and high level respite care for two to three weeks at a time.  Other periods by application.  The only fee is the basic daily fee which is currently set at $51.63 per day.

Respite care supports you and your carer by giving you both a break for a short period of time.  It is also an opportunity to see if you are ready for permanent residential care.  Residential respite is best suited if you need ongoing, continuous carer support for most tasks.
During your stay at Merton Court, you will be entitled to the same care and support services as permanent residents. For instance, you will be given a room and hotel-type services such as meals, laundry and social activities, as well as services to meet your personal and care needs.  All rooms at Merton Court are single occupancy, have their own ensuite and are air conditioned for your comfort.

To access residential respite, care recipients must be assessed as eligible by an ACAT.  For more information on respite or to arrange an assessment, please contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or visit the website: https://www.myagedcare.gov.au/short-term-care/respite-care

If you are eligible for respite care and would like to make a booking, please call Merton Living on 6547 2684 or Merton Court on 6547 1012.  Respite and permanent beds are available now.
