Did you know that DVA can provide up to 72 hours of emergency short-term home relief to carers?

Emergency short-term home relief (ESTHR) is an emergency care service that offers carers relief from their role, when they are unable to continue their responsibilities due to unforeseeable circumstances. ESTHR is provided in the home so that the individual that is being cared for is not left without adequate care.

For more information on this service, please contact a VHC Assessment Agency directly on 1300 550 450 or visit
