Our eight day respite centres located throughout Queensland offer you the chance to meet new people, enjoy some activities, and have a fun day out. If you have a carer, it also provides them with the opportunity to complete chores, attend appointments, or go to work.
There’s something for everyone at our day respite centres; whether you like to sit and chat over a cup of tea, play cards, do knitting or craft, or join in a sing-a-long with visiting entertainers. We often go on excursions to have a picnic or visit a local attraction, and have celebrations at the centre for Easter, Mother’s Day and other notable days during the year. Our activities are designed to be enjoyed by everyone and we can offer you support to join in if you need it.
Our cooks provide a delicious morning tea and lunch for you to enjoy, and cater for all dietary requirements. If you need help getting here, we can help with that too. Most of our day respite centres offer transport to and from your home, if you live in surrounding suburbs.
Our centres at Clontarf (Brisbane), Burleigh Heads (Gold Coast), and Townsville provide additional support to people living with dementia, including extended hours for carers to pursue work or study. Read more about our dementia day respite services.
With 20 years’ of experience working with seniors, people with disability, and people with dementia, our team of carers offer specialised respite at home, at one of our eight day respite centres around Queensland, or temporary residential respite at one of our aged care facilities. Our respite services are designed to support carers to take a break, attend appointments, or complete study and paid work.
Our day respite services are available to:
A $15 fee is charged for each day that you attend, and includes:
You can choose to pay at each visit, or we can set up a direct debit for you so the amount is automatically taken from your bank account on the due date.
Different fees apply for NDIS participants, set by the government.
Once you have decided that you would like to book into a day respite centre, contact the centre by phone, or enquire online using our form.
If you have already been approved for centre-based respite services through CHSP or your home care package, we can book you in straight away.
Otherwise, you will need to register with My Aged Care to see if you are eligible for day respite services. Read more about the process of getting home care.
