Beachside respite care opens on SA's Fleurieu Peninsula
A new respite care cottage has opened on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula for older people who need a rest with a “seachange”.
Aldinga House, located in Aldinga Beach, is run by SA-based Not For Profit aged care provider Resthaven. Located a short drive from the beach, the cottage offers day and overnight respite care, with two bedrooms available for stays of up to a fortnight.
Mrs Patricia Griffin, the first client to view the house, said she was excited to come whenever she could.
Overnight respite is available seven days a week, with bookings essential, and subsidised day and overnight respite for carers can be obtained through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, with Home Care Package and private options also on offer.
