Brightwater provides respite for people with disabilities between the ages of 18 and 65.
Respite is offered in a residential community house environment with locations in Balcatta, Manning and Marangaroo.
Each of these houses provides respite for people with varying levels of needs. Manning provides support for people requiring low level supervised care who can be assisted by a single care worker. Balcatta provides supervised and assisted care for people with moderate levels of disability. Endeavour House in Marangaroo offers full support for people with high to very high care needs.
How to use our respite services
You do not need a referral to book respite at these facilities, you can contact us directly.
Brightwater provides a personalised assessment which determines which location best suits the level of care required. Respite can be booked for up to a two week period and must be booked in full week blocks (7 days at a time). Longer periods of time may be negotiated on an individual client basis.
The fees are equivalent to 75% of the Disability Support Pension plus Rental Assistance.
