Waratah Respite Centre

Welcome to Waratah Respite

Waratah Respite Services provides a unique and innovative community service model. State and Commonwealth funding enables us to offer an integrated service consisting of three respite options for carers of frail aged adults, persons with dementia and adults with disabilities living in the Coffs Harbour and surrounding districts. We provide Flexible Centre-Based program and overnight respite.

The aim of our combined services is to enable clients to maintain individual skills; we encourage independence and individual choice, enabling them to live in their community and avoid premature admission to permanent residential care.

No person is turned away from our services for financial reasons; no person is discriminated against due to their age, disability, sexual status or preference, cultural, indigenous or linguistic background. All of our services offer a personal and holistic approach, ensuring all individual, social, cultural and ethnic needs are identified, respected and accommodated where possible.

Waratah Respite Services has four service outlets: Waratah Respite Centre in Coffs Harbour, Urunga Dolphins in Urunga, SilverTops in Sawtell and Seagulls  in Woolgoolga.

We have provided respite services in Coffs Harbour and surrounding districts since 1987.

We have the experience, we have the history and we do it well.
