Respite Breaks for Carers

“As my Mum was so aware of the caring we were doing for her, and worried about overburdening us, knowing we were rested helped her feel better and more relaxed.“
Christine, carer and relative

Being a carer can have a big impact on our lives, even when we love the person we are caring for. We can become mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausted and feel as if we are losing our identity.

Sometimes it isn’t easy for us to take a break from caring, to look after ourselves, and have someone look after us, yet we know that it is important for our health and wellbeing to do this.

Vaughan Park Retreat Centre offers carers the opportunity to relax, rest, and recharge in beautiful and tranquil surroundings. We offer comfortable accommodation and tasty meals cooked by our in-house chefs. There are spaces for quietness and conversation.

Walk along Long Bay beach or swim in the ocean, sit in our lovely gardens and hear the birds sing. Take a hobby with you to enjoy or simply catch up on some sleep. You may want to come on your own or bring a friend or family member with you.

Let us help to support you, look after you and help you to be ready to take on your caring role again.
