For many years Bribie Respite & Support Services has been working hard to provide timely, high quality care and support for the frail aged, people with dementia and young people with a disability, their carers and representatives.
One of the beliefs we hold dear is that life with a disability should not stop anyone from being active or participating in opportunities that enable them to thrive and learn more about themselves.
Our team has developed a full program of semi-structured learning, social support, outdoor activities and other fun activities for people with a disability. The program aims to help people build up the tools and confidence to take good care of themselves, develop skills for independent living, go out and about in their community, make friends and, ultimately, get more out of life.
Another of Bribie Respite & Support Services’ key missions is to educate the community in and around Bribie Island about the importance of social and cognitive activity in ageing, so that everyone can live independently for longer.
Over the last five years, we have built-up our Aged Care Day Respite program, incorporating a range of innovative and therapeutic activities for older people; activities that extend them socially as well as support them emotionally within a warm and loving environment.
Above all, we want to improve the quality of life of the people who come to us, as well as providing ongoing practical and emotional support to their long-term carers and families.
Thanks to the efforts of our highly trained team our services are now a lifeline to many in our community and, hopefully, many more to come.
Our door is open to anyone who would like to help themselves or a loved one get more out of life.
