Respite Care

plants1Violet Town Campus provides both High Level Respite Care (Nursing Home) and Low Level Respite Care (Hostel).

Respite care is usually booked in advance and a booking fee is paid equal to 25% of the fee for the respite stay or one week's respite fee (whichever is the lesser).

Violet Town Campus also provides emergency respite where the Aged Care Assessment Teams deems it necessary pending availability of a respite bed.

Fees, services and conditions are the same as for a permanent resident (see main body of information), with one major exception. Respite residents DO NOT PAY AN ACCOMMODATION CHARGE (Nursing Home) OR A BOND (Hostel).

The rent (basic daily fee) is set by the Government and as of December 1998 is set at 85% of the pension and is indexed with pension increases.
