Care Options

What is Permanent Care and Respite Care?

At Clanwilliam Health, we’ve been providing private, residential aged care services in Queensland’s South East for 45 years, so we know what an emotional time this can be for everyone involved. That’s why we’ve compiled detailed care option information that will help inform your decisions.

Here you can learn about the differences between permanent care and respite care, in particular the process of being assessed by Aged Care Assessment Teams (ACATs), how aged care facilities (also known as nursing homes) are operated and funded, and much more.

If you still have questions, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page. You can also find a Clanwilliam Health facility near you or contact us online or phone us directly on (07) 3397 9055.
