Matthew Flinders Community Care are excited to announce that we have been successful in attracting funding through the Primary Health Network.

These funds will enable to provide a new Emergency Respite Program.

This program will support families of the Lower Eyre Peninsula region who are experiencing   difficulties accessing respite or caring for a loved one with dementia. We can provide individual or group respite options in both the home and community setting, and can cater for different family requirements.

Our staff are passionate about and well trained in dementia care. We are so pleased to be able to offer this much needed service to our community.


  • Resident of Lower Eyre peninsula region and living in their own home
  • Have a diagnosis of dementia or cognitive decline
  • Have no access to government subsidies/funds to pay for respite or have exhausted current       subsidies available to you
  • Priority will be given to families experiencing significant carer burden


Respite will commence 1st Jan 2017.
