Sign up for Go Respite to pre-plan caregiving arrangements for when you need a break from caring for a loved one.

What is Go Respite?
Go Respite is a pilot programme by the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) that encourages caregivers to plan ahead and identify a suitable respite option that is able to meet their needs and those of their loved ones. Caregivers can pre-enrol with their preferred senior care centre or nursing home and complete some necessary pre-admission applications in advance. This shortens the time it takes to gain admission into respite care when you need it.
Give yourself peace of mind when you need to take a break from caregiving, or when your helper or domestic worker goes on home leave. Apply for Go Respite online here, and visit our participating centres or nursing homes with your loved ones to view the facilities. You may also find out more about our fees and services by enquiring with our staff during your visit.
*Pre-enrolment does not guarantee placement with your preferred service provider, but aims to shorten the time for care activation when respite is needed. Placement is subject to available vacancies at your selected senior day care centre or nursing home, and no significant changes to your medical condition from the point of pre-enrolment.
