Respite care

Respite care supports you, and the person you care for, by providing you both with a break from time to time. This can be anything from a few hours to a few weeks. 

With in-home respite or centre-based day or overnight cottage respite, our support workers can care for you in your home or in the community.

We are committed to quality care and will listen to find out what is important to you to ensure tailored care to your personal preferences.

Centre-based day respite

Our respite centres across Brisbane and the Gold Coast are welcoming and inclusive, and we aim to create a sense of belonging for everyone. We cater for all abilities, including those living with dementia, and support you to participate in individual or group activities that suit your interests and needs.

Overnight respite

Hadden Place offers Brisbane West's only overnight respite care centre and is ideal if you require a longer break in a caring and lively environment.

There is no minimum stay for overnight breaks in this new and modern facility. You can take full advantage of our rich day program of centre-based activities, social groups, bus trips and outings during your stay.

Conveniently located in Sinnamon Village and near the Fulton Wellbeing Centre, you do not have to miss your allied health appointments during your stay with us. You can access the on-site gym and hydrotherapy pool on a fee-for-service basis. 

We welcome people living with dementia who require care in a secure and comfortable environment.

Flexible in-home respite

We visit your home to provide you with the respite care you need whilst your carer takes a break, runs errands or attends appointments. We can also provide this care overnight if your carer is away or needs additional help.

In-home respite care can be arranged regularly, occasionally or one-off support. Contact us today to find out if in-home respite care is suitable for your needs. 

How to access respite care

You can access your respite care in a variety of ways, depending on your personal circumstances and which respite centre you choose. We will talk you through all the costs and fees before your services begin.

Funding your respite care can be done via:

  • your Home Care Package
  • with Commonwealth Home Support Program funding and an appropriate referral
  • private funding, or,
  • the Queensland Community Support Scheme
