Are You Looking For Respite Care For Your Kid?

Our disability support workers dedicate their time to understanding the emotional state of each child so that they can work out the best support plan for them. We are an NDIS registered organisation, which comes with one amazing benefit – your peace of mind. Why? Because this is just further proof that you are choosing the right place for your child’s respite care.

At PHASE, we are proud to only employ staff who are experienced and trained in working with those who have a disability. They need a minimum of a Level III Certificate in Disability to work with us, as well as a Working with Children Check and police clearance. Our staff are all first aid trained and certified, along with having manual handling training.

How do I get Respite Care for my Child?

Caring for a child with a disability can be exhausting and so respite care is essential to give you a break. Funding may be available from the NDIS, but you will need to provide documentary evidence to support your claim. This can include a diary, timetable and videos of the care you provide and the impact that the additional level of caring has on your life. In effect, you need to provide evidence of:

  • the additional support you provide compared to that for a child with no disability
  • any extra support you need, such as at weekends, overnight or during holidays
  • the benefit your child will receive from extra support, such as increased independence or community participation
  • support received previously
  • the benefits for your family, including the ability to work, socialise and rest.

The NDIS may fund a support worker to help with self-care, to participate in social activities and to help on outings. You will, however, still need to pay for entry costs to events, both for your child and possibly the support worker.

If you can’t obtain NDIS funding for respite care, contact Perth Healthcare and Support Enterprise on 1300 006 184 or We’ll let you know if other funding is available and will provide the top-quality respite care you need. Read More
