In-home or residential respite care for people with disabilities is one of our skilled services for people living in Brisbane North or the Moreton Bay area.
Community living and respite care can help you, your family or friends increase your standard of living with professional disability services from our fully trained and NDIS approved workers.
Respite care refers to when someone takes care of a friend or family member with a disability, Autism or other special needs.
It can be for just a few hours during the day. You can also get overnight care, or even for a longer period of time like several weeks. Respite care can be used on a daily or occasional basis. You can care for your family members or friends in your own home or elsewhere.
There might be a variety of options for respite care depending on where you live and how old your friend or family member is.
Daytime or overnight in-home respite
You will be visited by a caregiver. The carer might be available for just a few hours a week or for longer periods of time. You might have the person stay with your child, or they may take you out, such as to a local park.
They go to a centre and are cared for by a group for part of the day. Clubs and centres often organize outings, group activities, or holiday care programs.
Community access respite
This type of respite allows them to participate in activities that help them become independent and improve their social skills. It could be in a neighbourhood house or at a local health centre. A support worker may accompany you, or you might bring a member of your family to join you in community activities.
Our core work is done by support workers.
They will support people with mild to complex conditions every day to help them achieve their goals and live independently.
Our clients’ lives are important to us.
We offer our support workers a broad range of training to ensure they are able to deliver exceptional services and have the core skills necessary for success.
