Respite Care

Caring for a loved one is a demanding task, both physically and emotionally especially if your loved one requires attention 24/7. Sometimes caregivers themselves may have medical appointments, social activities or other important commitments. The foreign domestic helper may also go on leave. Besides, a caregiver might also need a break as attending to someone round the clock is not an easy task. Without a break, caregivers may face burnout and in the long run their quality of life as well as that of the care recipient will be affected.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care, also known as short-term care, allows caregivers to take a break from caregiving. This could be from several hours a day to a few weeks, for instance, if caregivers need to travel overseas.

Plan ahead with our respite care services:

Home Care

If you need extra help to look after your loved one at home, when your domestic helper is away on home leave, or if you need to go for your own medical appointment and run errands, our Home Care team has you covered with home personal care services. Our dedicated Care Associates can help with activities of daily living (ADLs), companionship and exercise while you step out for a much needed break.

If your loved one requires specialised help, our nurses, therapists and doctors are also available to visit your loved one at home.

Senior Day Care

For seniors who require supervision or assistance in their ADLs, they can join us at our Day Centres for Seniors for just a few days a week, for exercises and programmes designed to maintain their physical and cognitive functions.

Enquire directly with Senior Day Care for short-term respite care arrangements.

Other flexible care arrangements, such as our 3-hour Fun with Friends programme specially designed for seniors with mild dementia, or an exclusive home-based online DayCare+ programme are also available to keep your loved ones engaged and active while you get the respite you need. We also offer our Care on Sundays programme where seniors can enjoy activities at selected Day Centres for Seniors even during weekends.

Nursing Home

For seniors who require assistance in most ADLs and have high nursing care needs where caregivers are needed at night, they can consider our nursing homes. At our nursing homes, seniors who are bedbound or require round-the-clock assistance can receive the care they need. Our facilities have been designed to provide a warm and welcoming environment, while our friendly care concierges serve as a single point of contact for you and your loved one.

We provide both government-subsidised care as well as private respite care services. Clients interested in private respite care may register your interest here.

Admissions are subject to the availability of bed spaces. Residents who are admitted to our nursing homes for respite care can stay for a minimum of 7 days and maximum of 30 days. There must be a discharge care plan for your loved one at the end of the respite care period.

Go Respite

Go Respite is a programme by AIC that encourages caregivers to plan ahead and identify a suitable respite option. This is not a suitable care option for urgent respite care.
