Supporting families through the provision of alternative care options.
Multicap Tasmania’s respite options provide carers of people with disability with the opportunity to take a break from their support role.
We provide alternative care options for the person with disability and opportunities for new or different experiences. We provides respite options for both children and adults with disability.
Multicap provides several respite options, from support in your home, to respite within a purpose built house and from a few hours a day, overnight or for several weeks.
In home respite
In home respite provides care within your home. This service aims to meet the requirements of the person with disability, their carer and other family members, by being flexible and responsive to individual needs.
Facility based respite
Our facility based respite service offers an environment for people with disability to stay while their carer takes a break. Facility based respite can be used for a planned rest or emergency accommodation, with stays ranging from overnight to longer periods of time.
Respite stays may be regular or occasional to meet individual needs.
Multicap’s respite facilities provide a comfortable and welcoming environment in purpose built and accessible premises. Individuals have the opportunity to meet and socialise with others of similar age and have access to staff qualified in the specific support of people with disability.
Multicap’s provides respite services in Burnie, Ulverstone, Devonport and Launceston.
Multicap’s recreational services provide a broad range activities to people of all ages. Activities can be fun, adventurous or relaxing. They can be group activities or they can support individual goals and pursuits. They may be day activities, a weekend camp, a week away or even longer.
Recreational activities are great for increasing community participation, building social networks and also provide carers with rest time, knowing their loved one is enjoying a great social experience.
