Transitioning Australian Respite

Myra, Hamilton, Gianfranco, Giuntoli, Karen, Fisher

Published Literature


Respite care typically consists of short intervals of rest from the routine of a care-giving relationship to support the health and well-being of both the carer and the service participants, i.e. people with disability, long-term illness or frailty due to old age. This research project examines the impacts for participants, carers, communities and government of transitioning respite services into consumer directed care markets. The focus is on the major reform processes of the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the Commonwealth Home Support Program, which involve a focus on personalised services and consumer directed care.
