To support the Grafton community, Catholic Healthcare is offering up to 28 days of complimentary short-term respite at St Francis Aged Care Home.

For carers, respite accommodation means having time for rest and rejuvenation. For their loved ones, it means being supported by registered nursing staff, nutritious daily meals and comfortable air-conditioned rooms.

But it’s not just about the care. Residents at Catholic Healthcare’s homes love the sense of community and connections they have found. Eleanor lives at St Mary’s Villa in Dubbo and quickly became best friends with fellow resident Vona after moving in.

“I’ve been here for 12 months and have made really good friends,” says Eleanor, smiling at Vona. "I’ve become a different person from the time I came in because I know there are people here to look after me," she adds.

Whether it’s planned, or an emergency, Catholic Healthcare’s free summer respite can provide peace of mind this summer.
