Civic reopens aged care cottage respite to support older Australians, carers and families

We are excited to share the news that Civic’s Cottage Respite located at Woolooware has reopened and is ready to provide tailored long day and overnight respite services to aged care residents in South East Sydney.

The newly renovated three-bedroom cottage has undergone significant upgrades, featuring brand new furnishings and décor.

Located only a stone’s throw from the beach, with a full day of activities available, plus onsite-clinicians, the Cottage is the perfect place to enjoy some time away, supported by our friendly and experienced Aged Care team.

Aged Care Operations Manager, Cheryl Tarantola and her team have been busy preparing to welcome clients to the Cottage.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming clients to our Cottage. Respite is a vital service that many families rely on and due to the recent stay-at-home restrictions this service has been unavailable.”

In addition, Civic’s Aged Care Cottage Respite can also provide respite for family members and friends who act as carers. This enables carers, particularly of people living with dementia, the chance to take a break from their caring role. The overnight and long-day respite services are subsidised through the Commonwealth Home Supports Program, which means they are provided at very low cost for eligible participants.
