Colourful boost for respite group
A MIDLAND-based respite group is more visible in the community after decking out their transit van in eye-catching artwork.
Hamersley House community and day respite manager Jacqui Stockton said the centre was designed for people receiving full-time care at home and had a disability or age related illness.
Mrs Stockton said caring for a loved one at home could be very demanding.
“Global Care Group in 2007 established Hamersley House, a day respite centre where loved ones can be cared for during the day in a secure home-like environment, Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm,” she said.
“Guests have access to an extensive list of services and activities and form friendships with other guests and staff at the centre.”
Mrs Stockton said Hamersley House was funded by the Commonwealth Government’s National Respite for Carers program.
