YOUTH SERVICE

39Plus is a registered NDIS Provider

As a young carer we recognise the contribution you make to the community and in particular to the lives of those you care for.  Being young doesn’t mean you’re unable to access supports; in fact, it may highlight a need for even more support than those required by some older carers.  With the pressures of study, perhaps you are still caring for your own young family or trying to juggle work, a home life and caring for a loved one, this can be a trying time and we are here to help.   

All carers need to take a break from time to time, a chance to mix with your friends and family, to pursue your own interests and hobbies and to re-energise. You are not alone! 39Plus understands the importance of caring for a loved in in familiar surroundings and can offer a range of respite options to help you achieve your goals both personally and as a carer. 

Our staff understand that as a younger carer your needs will be different. Let’s talk about your life, your carer situation and how you can achieve the outcomes you’re looking for.  We will work with you to implement a flexible  support plan, one designed to suit you and your unique situation,  allowing you to continue to create a life that has meaning to you.

 

So why not get together with other people of a similar age and situation, share strategies and ideas and create a support network who you can call upon for a little advice when needed.  We offer a range of programs and services to help facilitate this which include group based activities, one to one counselling and support, camps and short holidays and of course our quality suite of respite services.  Activities are age appropriate so whether you are a young person in your teens or someone in your 40’s or 50’s we have something to offer you.

FLEXIBLE
COTTAGE RESPITE

A home away from home

Do you need a bit of timeout? 

Why not take a break while we care for your loved one. We have two cottages, one based in Rosebud on the Mornington Peninsula and the other located at Berwick in Melbourne's South East. 

We welcome you to come and  have a look around, have a chat and a cuppa! 

What does flexible, short term respite mean? 

Flexible respite is just that, a flexible style of care. It can be provided in your home, in our well appointed cottages or in the community. It can be for a day, overnight or several nights and is designed to fit with your individual needs and circumstances.  Contact us today to discuss options. 

Our highly qualified, skilled and experienced direct care staff hold professional industry related tertiary qualifications. They are also trained and qualified in first aid certificate, dementia specific support and disability support and have been carefully screened to ensure you receive the high quality care you deserve.

 

In the present day, navigating the Aged Care and Disability service sectors can be complicated and sometimes overwhelming. Let us ease the burden in understanding by taking the time to work through your needs and options and find a tailored service solution that gives you exactly what you want.
