Carers provide older people with the gift of independence and being able to remain living in their own communities and homes for longer. They are passionate, patient and have hearts of gold. So when a carer cannot be there, MACS Geelong provides a respite service that ensures older people feel right at home.
MACS Respite Care is the perfect option when a carer is on leave or needs to recharge. MACS has two individual rooms available for short-term respite care, which allow carers up to eight weeks of respite per year.
Bella Chara, MACS Supported Residential Service, also offers beautiful respite rooms with private en-suites and balconies and round the clock care is provided by professional staff.
Respite residents are warmly welcomed into the MACS community and can participate in the exciting Well-being program, while taking advantage of the wonderful facilities available in the North Geelong precinct. For regular respite residents , a stay at MACS provides a welcome opportunity to catch up with friends and become familiar with MACS should more permanent care be required in the future.
