Respite Care

We understand just how important it is for careers to take a break from time to time. We can offer respite to provide the support you need and make the transition as smooth and pain-free as possible. We’ll help you relax and give you comfort in knowing the person you care for is being well looked after.

This means we focus on specialist cultural care where everything is customised from the Neighbourhood Model, food options and diet requirements to a multilingual team that can comfortably converse with and care for our residents.

Inside our homes we have intergenerational programs bringing the community to our residents. Other activities include live entertainers, music therapy, a visiting art therapist, and pet therapy. We conduct regular surveys of our residents’ needs and incorporate these into our daily programs and activities. TJG offers a holistic approach to the care or our residents to ensure we offer the highest level of care whilst maintaining community connections.
