Centre-based Respite and Supported Social Groups

For older Seniors who require extra support, Burnie Brae’s Club Respite offers experienced staff and a program which includes a range of activities, entertainment and outings in a safe and social setting. Morning tea, lunch, and transport to and from the Centre within designated boundaries is included as part of the daily fee.

We’re reopening Club Respite from Monday June 15, 2020, and with the safety of our attendees in mind, the following changes to our usual format are outlined below:

  • There will be no outings to begin with, only centre activities and use of the adjacent park
  • The Monday to Friday program is available to both men and ladies
  • We will now be offering the Ladies group every Monday and Thursday and the Men’s group will be every Friday
  • There will be no Saturday club or Movie club at this stage
  • We have an exciting new look program of activities
  • Our virtual respite will continue for those at home

Please contact any one of our friendly staff on our direct phone number, 07 3624 2136. If we are not available when you phone, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

I didn’t know how Day Respite would work out for my husband, but it has been a resounding success and I can’t thank the incredible Burnie Brae Respite staff enough for their patience and care.
