The Benetas Day Respite Programme is set up to be as home-like as possible. Day programmes run several days per week, and ensure clients have the chance to socialise with others and enjoy meals, activities and outings together. 

To access the Benetas Sunshine Day Respite Programme you can be referred through your local Home and Community Care services, your local council, your local Aged Care Assessment Services, your doctor or via self referral.

You can contact the Customer Centre on 1300 23 63 82.

Benetas was established in 1948 when a small group of volunteers from the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne responded to the urgent need to provide care and support to older Victorians. More than 65 years later they now operate as a not-for-profit organisation providing care to more than 4,000 clients and their families. 

Benetas has over 1,500 staff and 400 dedicated volunteers, who provide a full range of services including residential aged care, housing and home support, including nursing services for people of all ages.

The parish of Holy Apostles Sunshine is proud to work in partnership with Benetas.
