DANS (Dubbo Area Nursing Service) offer in home respite services to give patients and their carers a short break. This can help give you the time you need to do things independently and all the while knowing your loved on in is in safe hands.
Respite care can take many forms. The goal is to give both the carer and patient independent support; this could be as little as an hour or two a day, through to overnight stays and weekend support. It gives both the patient and carer the time they need to run errands, work independently and receive a small break from the day-to-day care requirements.
Our respite service and in home nursing can be tailored to your requirements. You can organise regular booked support or utilise our ‘as-needs basis’ to assist you when things pop up.
