Respite Care Program

Empowering wellbeing

Burnout is a real and present concern for parents managing the challenges of providing 24/7 care to a child with complex health needs and disability. Hands on, practical help and support at home and in the community can make a big difference. That’s where Hannah’s House steps in. We deliver in-home support and care for the child, offer parents a real break and focus on quality of life for the whole family.

Respite care might also take the form of:

  • Rostered day or night hours at home – scheduled hours at home could include shifts lasting 4 to 8 hours on one or more days per week, spread across an agreed-upon period of weeks. 
  • An extended break where parents are away from home and the child is provided with 24-hour in-home care for an agreed number of days.

Our support is flexible and always tailored to meet the needs and goals of your family.


“Hannah’s House has honestly been a godsend for us. Having that trust and support worker that knows what they’re doing is such a huge relief for me.”

Tarryn, mum to Yasir aged 4

What if my child doesn’t have NDIS funding?

If your child has been diagnosed with a life-limiting or other condition that causes complex daily support needs or necessitates palliative care, Hannah’s House may be able to provide you with fee-free respite care packages thanks to our generous supporters in the community like Telethon, Mineral Resources and WA Charity Direct.
