Taking a break from your caring role is important for your physical and mental wellbeing and allows you to re-energise.

ECH offers a range of at-home and site-based respite services that enable you to confidently take a break for a few hours or even a few days at Dandelion.

Carer Support

Caring for a family member or friend is a rewarding role however it can leave you with little time to look after your own wellbeing. ECH offers a range of wellness classes and services that can enable you to take some time out for yourself. ECH Wellness Centres offer exercise classes where you can maintain or improve your fitness while socialising with others. Or if you prefer to exercise alone, you can use the gyms located at the Wellness Centre. Or if you would like some time to relax and unwind, ECH offers Tai Chi programs, music meditation and remedial massage. Professional allied health therapists, including Physiotherapists, Podiatrists and Dieticians, are also available to provide advice about looking after yourself and the person you care for. What other services does ECH provide to support carers? ECH offers respite through Day Programs located at Smithfield, Walkerville, Happy Valley and Henley Beach. These programs enable the person you care for to engage in a social, homelike environment or go on an outing with all the support that is needed while you perhaps go to an exercise class or spend some time with friends. If you need a longer break to go out for an evening or perhaps take a holiday, Dandelion at Walkerville could be a great option for you. Dandelion has been purpose-designed to meet the needs of people living with dementia or cognitive decline and offers several integrated respite suites as well as an exceptional Day Program respite…

Day Programs

If you are caring for someone experiencing dementia or memory loss, ECH Day Programs offer the opportunity to take a well-earned break.

Home Services

If you provide care for someone either in their home or your own, you might find you have less time for household chores and home and garden maintenance.
