What is respite care?


A short-term arrangement for a child to be cared for by a respite carer. A respite carer is someone who cares for your child like they would their own while you take a break to resolve issues you are facing.

Sanctuary Care caters to newborn infants and children up to the age of 8. Our arrangements last up to 90 days and is dependent on the needs of the family.

Head down to the nearest family service centre to speak with your family social worker about requesting for help with us. Your family social worker has a broad overview of your family's situation and is in a good position to advise on whether you and your family will benefit from respite care.
