Respite Care headingRespite room
The Eyre Peninsula Old Folks Home has 2 rooms available to accommodate people requiring low care respite.

The length of stay varies from one week to several weeks with the average length being a fortnight. Our respite rooms are in high demand. We are often booked up to 4 to 6 months in advance so it is advisable to plan ahead where possible and book in advance if you know of a future date when respite will be needed.

You will need a low care ACAT assessment before you can access our Residential Respite . This allows you access to 9 weeks respite per financial year (July -June). You must apply to ACAT for an extension (which is granted in 3 week increments) if you need more than the 9 weeks allowed.

Respite enquiries and bookings can be made by ringing the Eyre Peninsula Old Folks Home on (08) 8683 0648 during office hours between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday.
