Morrissey Homestead recognises that life doesn't happen within the hours of 9 - 4pm Monday to Friday. This is the reason behind our decision to extend our current services to include Respite and Overnight Respite.
Overnight Respite is delivered from our Bunbury venue which has been designed to cater for people who have disabilities, giving carers peace of mind and comfort knowing that their loved one is in familiar surroundings supported by friendly, professional staff. This service enables carers to attend appointments or engagements out of town or simply have a night to themselves, to aid in their wellness.
A sun downer service (Extended Respite) is also an option for carers. Staff support clients in their own home, assisting with personal care and preparation of meals. The service ends when the client is settled and secure for the evening. Morning support is also available.
Respite care plans are tailored to meet the varied care needs of the individual with an emphasis on promoting independence.
Morrissey is proud to work alongside Red Cross Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre to support carers in their caring role.
