Tailored Respite Programs
At One Love Community Care, we are well known for our immersive and impactful individual and group respite programs and retreats, focusing on several health, wellness, and community engagement areas. Our highly specialised retreats cater to many communities and concentrate on current real-world challenges and ideas. Our retreats are designed to provide a sense of community, social support, and a sustainable sense of empowerment for groups and individuals. Our retreats are a positive opportunity for group exploration and personal reflection, encompassing meditation and mindfulness, culture and belonging, and sensory experiences, including art projects, horticulture, music, food, and self-soothing.
Short-term accommodation, including respite, is funding for support and accommodation for a short time away from your usual home. It covers the cost of your care in another place for up to 14 days at a time. You might have a short stay with other people, or by yourself. It’s often funded when your usual carers aren’t available, or for you to try new things.

Individual and Team Innovative Respite Programs: One of the core strengths of OLCC lies in our Individual and Team Innovative Respite Programs.

Short Term Accommodation, including respite, is support for when you need to live out of home for a short period.

Short Term Accommodation funding can be used for respite to support you and your carers. This gives your carers a short break from their caring role.

Sometimes, a short stay away from home:
  • Gives you the chance to try new things
  • Can be a place to make new friends or develop new skills
  • May help to maintain your current living situation by giving your informal supports a break
