Flexible respite

From July 2021, Knox City Council no longer provides flexible respite under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme.

Uniting Age Well now provides this service to residents in the City of Knox.

Flexible respite services support and maintain relationships between residents and their carers. It does this through quality respite care.

If you are a Knox resident:

  • who was receiving flexible respite services from Council – please call Uniting Age Well on 8845 1800.
  • over 65 years of age who wishes to request flexible respite for the first time –  please contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.
