C16 - Paying for Respite Care
If you are not eligible for Ministry of Health financial assistance for respite care, you can pay for it yourself.
If you have private health insurance, you could check whether this can pay all or part of the respite care costs.
Paying for respite care yourself gives you much more flexibility and control over the whole process.
You must organise and pay for the care yourself.
What do I need in order to take this option?
- You will need to have the money to pay for the respite care.
- A suitable respite care service must be available in your area.
