We offer short-term respite services to suit all your needs.
St Michael’s offers respite in a newly purpose built comfortable, fun environment where you have your own individual bedroom and the opportunity to make friendships and join a social community.
Respite can be planned as a regular event, provided in emergencies and organised when friends are staying to enable long lasting relationships to develop.
This is a flexible service which provides for a break where fun, enjoyment and high quality support is provided.
The program is designed for individuals to feel comfortable and safe and enjoy a range of social activities. Support can be provided to enable individuals to attend their regular day support activities.
Each participant has their own room with plenty of space for personal belongings.
