Onkaparinga respite program provides in-home care for the aged, frail and people with a disability living in our council area to give their carers respite.

This will allow the carer to:

  • go shopping
  • attend social activities
  • tend to daily chores
  • maintain usual outside activities.

All care workers are screened and trained and are specifically matched to meet individual needs. This ensures both carers and their relatives or friends are comfortable with the respite provided.

A contribution is required to support the service and is negotiated individually with the carer.

For more information, please contact our Respite program on (08) 8384 0558 or email
