Carers are very special people. They are shining lights in our communities. They provide older people with the gift of independence and being able to remain living in their own 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 in Annie O’Malley House, available for short-term respite care, which allow carers up to eight weeks of respite per year.
Respite consumers are warmly welcomed into the MACS community and can participate in the exciting social and lifestyle program, while taking advantage of the wonderful facilities available in the North Geelong precinct. For regular respite consumers, 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.
