Respite Care this Christmas at a luxurious beachside home in Victor Harbor

A respite break during the holiday season at the seaside in a small shared residence which feels like home.

  • Are you concerned about caring for an elderly relative with many visitors at home these holidays?
  • Do you need a break from your everyday carer duties to go on a holiday?
  • Are you an elderly South Australian whose family is away this Christmas?

Your parent or elderly relative will love some time at our luxury beachfront home which has a homely environment and encourages involvement and contribution. St Louis on Sea is a small shared residence offering 24 hour personalised care for up to eight residents. The inclusive environment supports active living - engaging in everyday household activities, just like a normal Australian family home.

This Christmas we’ll be cooking up a delicious Christmas day lunch and everyone will be involved in the preparation for the day. Throughout December and January, we’ll be taking walks along the beach, playing boardgames, organising social outings and getting involved in other activities simply for fun and enjoyment.

St Louis On Sea is a place where your relatives will feel at home. We encourage everyone to treat it like their own home, and we respect people’s normal daily rhythms and preferences. The home is also beautifully appointed with many features:

  • All single rooms with ensui
  • Absolute beachfront luxury
  • Ultimate comfort and security
  • 24-hour personalised care and support
  • Specialising in dementia care

The benefits of Respite Care

Many of our clients need additional care over the summer holidays through December and January for elderly family members, especially if they have health concerns that need daily attention. Normal weekly routines are disrupted with school holidays and other relatives coming to visit or stay which can cause caregiver’s stress.

And you’re not alone. Caregiver’s stress is common and that’s why respite care is available. We talk to clients every day about the care needs of their parents and elderly relatives and it’s wise to reach out for some added help during times of increased activity such as the summer holidays.
