Geelong's Trusted NDIS Registered Provider

24 Hour One to One Care with
Experienced Support Workers.

Geelong Disability Service’s in-home respite care service is designed to provide an enjoyable experience to our clients as well as providing a break for carers, giving them time to do the things they normally don’t get the opportunity to do.

Fully Qualified Support Workers

We provide each of our Respite clients with a Roster of Supports that is specifically individualised to the client including specifically matched Support Workers, which I am sure you can understand, takes time to set-up and organise. For this reason, all new stays need to be booked in at least 2 weeks prior to arrival and return stays 1 week prior.

Paired with a Like-minded Support Worker

Each of our short term accommodation clients are specifically matched with similar aged, like minded Support Workers who have similar interests and outlooks.

Alternatively, Access Up to 14 Days Short Term Accommodation

Up to 14 days Short Term Accommodation in our home away from home providing all clients with 1 to 1 supports. Short Term Accommodation covers accommodation, personal care supports, food as well as community access.

Live Your Best Life with an in-home Respite Care

Our Support Coordination team aims to build your capacity to undertake tasks associated with the management of your own supports and assist with community access plans as well.
