Understanding Aged Care

When to consider a rest home
Consider care earlier rather than later
Finding a rest home that suits you or your loved one

It’s important you talk to other members of the family when the time comes for you to consider the options that are available for a loved one or family member who requires closer attention and care.

More often than not, the decision to place someone in care is done under the most difficult of circumstances and usually within very short time frames. In many cases, it can be as short as a few days and can be a stressful time for all concerned.

Levels of Care

At Radius Care we cover the full range of accommodation and care options, from rest home and hospital level care right through to dementia, respite and palliative. These broad offerings allow for ‘ageing in place’, so if any of our residents’ needs change they are able to stay with us.

Respite Care

Short-term stays, or respite care services, are available to those who are unwell (eg, recovering from an illness or hospital stay) or who simply are in need of extra support.
