Flexible Respite

What is the Flexible Respite?

The Flexible Respite Program supports clients and their carers by providing the short or long stays in the “Rose Cottage” Respite House located in Crib Point. Our respite house is a wonderful solution for those who want to rest and enjoy the natural beauty of the Mornington Peninsula (VIC). The Flexible Respite service is also available in clients’ homes.

The “Rose Cottage” Respite House includes a fully equipped kitchen, 2 living rooms, 4 single bedrooms and 1 double bedroom with split—system air–conditioning. There are 3 modern bathrooms with showers. The outdoor deck at the rear of the cottage is a perfect place for an outdoor meal or recreational activities. The garden belonging to the cottage provides us with seasonal vegetables and fruit, which we use to prepare meals for our clients.

The transport service to and from the cottage is available for those who need it.
