Respite is a service designed to give clients and families a break. We currently have a Respite house where people can come and stay for between an hour to 2 weeks, more if need be for some clients, and this provides clients with a home like environment to support them in their everyday needs.
This service is available to both local clients, and clients outside the Hinchinbrook Shire (Queensland wide)
