Remote and Aboriginal respite

 

Overview

Carers NT Remote respite program is aimed at people living in remote areas of the Northern Territory (NT) who want a break from caring, without leaving their community.  The service is flexible and culturally appropriate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and offers a variety of options for carers and people being cared for to receive support and have a break. 

Options available for getting a break are:

Carers NT works with existing supports and service providers in the communities to deliver this service. The responsible service provider identifies the carer and carer recipients, and then, through negotiation and consultation with the carers, a program is developed and implemented to provide the aged care recipients with the appropriate overnight flexible respite.
