Claremont Terrace Aged Care
From our Residents and famililes...
Claremont Terrace has been absolutely wonderful at addressing all the needs of my mother who is in her late 90s and myself (daughter).They have been extremely flexible and provide a marvellous environment for my mother to thrive and enjoy life. Even with COVID-19, they have made every effort to provide contact between us using video technology and each time I \'see\' mum, she is looking so well cared for. She is happy and I would recommend this home to anyone looking for an elegant place with good care. The staff make the place and they have a long history of having worked there and bring a lot of experience. I cannot fault it in any way. ~ Jane Marcus
My mother is very happy with her new home at Claremont Terrace Aged Care. The staff are caring, diligent and helpful. The facilities and rooms are beautiful (especially after the 2019 renovation). I can highly recommend this residence. ~ Judy Green

Respite Care – Your Home away from Home
While our Homes are known and established within local communities for permanent residential care and services, we are also experienced in providing individualised short term respite care, be it planned or due to an emergency.
What is Respite Care?
Events in life just happen, and it is in those times that short term respite can provide the help and support for carers needing a rest or elderly individuals requiring day to day care. Respite care can be planned or unplanned, and can range from a few nights to a few weeks, depending on your needs at any point in time.
Am I eligible for residential Respite Care?
Generally speaking, residential respite care is available for older persons who have carers assisting with their day to day activities and care needs. An initial face-to-face assessment is conducted by Age Care Assessment Teams to ensure you meet the criteria for respite care.
How long can I have respite care?
In a residential aged care setting, you can have access of up to 63 days of subsidised care in any one financial year. You also have the opportunity if needed to extend this by 21 days at a time.
Recommended respite stays will vary between aged care providers. Our policy at Allity in order to optimise your experience, is between 2-4 weeks depending on your circumstances.
When is Respite Care used?
At Allity, we have residents who book in regularly for respite as part of their family routine giving both the carers and the individual receiving care ‘time out’. Situations where respite care is beneficial include when:
Carers or families have holidays booked and want to ensure their loved one is well looked after in place that is familiar, comfortable and with people they know - which includes other residents and staff in our Homes.
Carers become ill or unable to provide the care and support for any length of time and want to ensure their loved one is looked after in a secure, professional and welcoming environment.
What should I expect?
We understand how distressing it can be to move away from a family home, even if it is temporary. When you come to Allity for respite care, our aim is to create a Home away from Home for our residents to make the settling-in period as easy as it can be. You can expect the same quality of care that permanent residents receive including all meals, laundry services, social activities and all of your care needs.
To find out more about Respite care options, you can contact a Home near you or send us your details and we will be in touch to assist any way we can.
