Dementia Specific Short-Term Accommodation (STA) / Respite – where can I find this?

Safe Solutions Care is dedicated to providing dementia-specific respite services in the picturesque Colac Otways area. Our Short Term Accommodation (STA) options cater to individuals with dementia, whether funded through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or self-funded, with a minimum stay of two nights. We understand the importance of offering comprehensive care that considers both the individual’s needs and the caregiver’s peace of mind.

At Safe Solutions Care, our team includes qualified Registered Nurses with extensive experience in dementia care. They are trained to provide personalized support and assistance tailored to each individual’s unique requirements. From medication management to specialized care techniques, our nursing staff ensures the safety and well-being of all residents throughout their stay.

One of the key benefits of our respite services is the convenience we offer to caregivers. We understand that arranging care for a loved one with dementia can be challenging, which is why we provide a pick-up service from your home and ensure a safe return after the respite period. This eliminates the stress of transportation logistics, allowing caregivers to focus on taking a well-deserved break.

During their stay at Safe Solutions Care, residents have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the tranquil beauty of the Colac Otways area. Nature walks through lush forests and scenic trails provide a calming and therapeutic experience, promoting relaxation and well-being. Our staff members accompany residents on these outings, ensuring their safety while encouraging physical activity and enjoyment of the natural surroundings.

In addition to outdoor activities, we offer a range of therapeutic services designed to enhance the overall experience of our residents. Massage therapy, in particular, is highly beneficial for individuals with dementia, as it promotes relaxation, reduces agitation, and improves circulation. Choose from a selection of local trained massage therapists,

who provide gentle and soothing massages tailored to each resident’s preferences, further enhancing their sense of comfort and well-being.

Overall, the dementia-specific respite services at Safe Solutions Care offer numerous benefits for both individuals with dementia and their caregivers. Whether funded through the NDIS or self-funded, our STA options provide a much-needed break for caregivers while ensuring that residents receive high-quality care in a safe and supportive environment. From nature walks to therapeutic massages, we strive to create an enriching and enjoyable experience for all who stay with us.
