Where Caring is a way of Life
Quality Lifestyle Support (QLS) understands that supporting a family member who has the impact of a disability can be both rewarding and also, at times, challenging. We also understand that just as family members may need a break to recharge their batteries, the supported person may also need a break.
As such, QLS offers a variety of respite services for families and people with disabilities. This respite is flexible to meet the needs of both the family and the individual with a disability. This can include support for short lengths of time such as a couple of hours or a weekend, to extended periods of time such as for several weeks. QLS has the resources to provide respite either in the home of the individual, or provided accommodation, depending on the wishes of the family and supported person.
QLS will work with the family and individual to ensure that the respite is the least intrusive as possible for both the family and the individual, as we know that this can be a difficult decision to make.
Should your family be considering full time support, respite is a great way to assist in determining if your family and the individual is ready for this decision. It allows for you to fully understand the benefits and also any implications it may have, be they emotional or physical for you, your family and the individual being supported. Respite can also be utilised as a transition phase into a more permanent support arrangement. QLS offers a variety of respite packages including:
