Ozcare provides day respite services for people with disability or health conditions in Queensland

Day Respite Centres - Disability

A fun social day out to our dedicated centres

Our eight day respite centres in Queensland offer people with disability a fun, social outing, while their carer takes a break, completes chores, attends appointments, or goes to work.

You’ll get to meet new people and get involved in our activities; whether you like to have a dance, do some craft, or borrow books from the library, we have something for everyone. We often go on excursions to have a picnic or visit a local attraction, or have people come to our centre to perform for us. 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.

If you’d like to visit one of our day respite centres before you join, please call your nearest centre for a tour.

Costs

Our day respite services are available to people who are eligible for Queensland Community Care Services (QCCS).

A $15 fee is charged for each day that you attend, and includes:

  • Care, including help with eating, going to the toilet, medication and participating in activities as needed
  • Meals, including morning tea and lunch
  • Transport to and from your home, subject to availability
  • Activities which are designed to be enjoyed by everyone

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.
