Respite Support

​Our respite support allows people living with disability to experience time away from home in a safe, engaging and supported environment, so you can take a well-deserved break – whether it's a week-long annual holiday, a weekend away each month or just a few hours each week.

Centre-based respite – Allawah House

Based in Logan on the traditional lands of the Yugambeh people, Allawah House has a welcoming, home-like atmosphere, with Allawah being the Aboriginal word for 'come stay here and rest'. Here you can spend anywhere from two nights, to two weeks. We offer a range of recreational and leisure activities including BBQs, arts and crafts, movie nights, gardening activities and cooking.

Flexi Respite

Through flexi respite, our Community Support Workers provide short-term, flexible respite in your own home. Lifestyle Solutions staff can also help you connect with your local community and take part in social activities outside the home.
