Centacare – Waminda Respite Centre
Provides centre-based and in-home services to frail aged people and their carers in Caboolture Shire, with a primary focus on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. Our services are aimed at assisting our clients to maintain their independence and a good quality of life in their own homes, thus preventing early or inappropriate admission to residential care. We run a Healthy Lifestyle Program and a Personal Care Program for our clients, in addition to taking them on regular outings and providing in-home services and transporting them to their medical and other appointments when necessary. We also assist with Allied Health requirements, such as podiatry or physiotherapy, when necessary. We provide meals on respite days and also a regular lawn-mowing service.
