Respite Care

Caring for a loved one is a precious and cherished responsibility. It may, at times, also be demanding and overwhelming. However, it’s nice to know that Woolgoolga Aged Care Centre is ready and available if needed.

Respite care allows carers the chance to take some time out for themselves and provides new experiences for cherished loved ones. At Woolgoolga & District Retirement Village Ltd, we  provide respite care in our Aged Care Centre.


Having the person you are caring for come and stay with us at our comfortable and well-appointed centre is the ideal way to get respite care needed for short or long term. When  your loved one join us, they’ll enjoy a room, meals, 24-hour care and lifestyle and social preferences are catered for. Stays can range from seven days up to 63 days.  This will allow you a much needed break to be able to undertake self-care, secure in the knowledge that the person you care for is in safe hands.

To be eligible for respite, a person must be assessed by a member of the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT), and consequently have been issued with a current Aged Care Application and Approval Form (ACCR) which states that they are eligible to receive respite High or Low care. Respite bookings can be made by calling us on 02 6654 0022 and asking to speak to Sandra Thorpe, our Business Coordinator.

Woolgoolga Retirement Village  is located approximately 1 km from the Woolgoolga town centre and the town's main beach. Woolgoolga Back Beach is less than half a kilometre away.
