Respite care

Are you a home carer in need of a break? Caring for a loved one with failing health can be a stressful and exhausting experience. But Capecare can help.

Capecare has a range of Respite options available including the following:

  • On the beachfront in Busselton in our Private Respite.
  • At our Busselton and Dunsborough facilities in a dedicated Residential Respite room
  • In the Client’s own home
  • Day Respite is available in our Social Centre located in Busselton

Transport is available for both the Private Respite and Social Centre services.

Private Respite

Private Respite is available for community members who live in their own home and are supported by a loved one or carer.

Clients can stay for one night or up to six weeks in a private spacious ensuite bedroom. We provide 24-hour care by trained staff and Private Respite includes a seasonal menu prepared onsite by our catering team. Private Respite clients can enjoy our Social Centre, providing social connections and activities dedicated to keeping the mind and body mobile an active. If there are any health needs you’re currently managing at home, our 24-hour trained clinical team can assist during your Respite stay.

As there is a lot of demand within the community for our Respite service, we recommend contacting us as soon as you think you may have need of respite. While most client’s book stays in advance across the year, we do try to meet any needs for emergency respite. We are more than happy to discuss options with you.  Please call our Admissions team on 9750 2095 or email at
