The Burrangiri Aged Care Respite Centre caters to the needs of frail elderly people in the community when the carer or the caring support system is in need of temporary relief. We can provide a place to stay as a short term break or other programs as support for when you need it most. Burrangiri is a place where the carer and the person that they care for can participate in social and recreational activities with like-minded people. It is also a time when independence is encouraged and overall wellbeing is facilitated. For the carer it is a time that allows a break from the demands of caring, to relax and possibly attend to other tasks.
