Spectrum recognises the need for clients and families to access respite services for a range of reasons. Offering both planned and emergency respite responses, Spectrum is able to provide flexible supports to meet the broad range of need that exists within our community.
We offer both respite in the form of both in-home and out of home placement environments.
Services are provided for hours or weeks as required to meet the needs of the individual and their circumstances.
We are able to:
- Support service users in their own home while regular carers are away or otherwise unable to manage their regular caring role;
- Support service users for domestic travel and other holiday requirements to facilitate access to work or recreational travel for those who require support to do so;
- Provide out of home accommodation supports for people with specialist mobility and accessibility support requirements;
- Provide medium term accommodation supports out of home to support the assessment and transition process for supported independent living.
Spectrum operates a shared respite accommodation venue to meet the diverse needs of our service users:
Magnolia Cottage at Petrie is close to transport, services, and the new university community hub. The property fully accessible and supports guests on a 24 hour support model.
Our property is beautiful, with function meeting aesthetic to create quality out of home support options for those who need them. Contact us any time to book a tour and discuss to further discuss options and availability.
At Spectrum, we’re known for our unique approach to service provison. Our goal is to promote consumer choice and drive quality by extending the range of services available and challenging the boundaries of traditional service models.
