About Respite With Linda

We are a Registered NDIS Provider and Approved Carer Gateway Provider for children’s weekend respite and short term accommodation.

Our team are all highly qualified & experienced carers and educators. Respite with Linda is an experienced and respected provider of short term accommodation for children aged 5-17 living with disability.

Unlike many other providers, we’re not a ‘facility’ or a ‘service house’.

We’ve opened the door to our Morayfield residential home so your child can enjoy all the comforts of home while staying with us.

WHat is Respite care?

NDIS Respite Accommodation & Care Services

NDIS Respite care is a support service provided to participants in the NDIS program also known as the National Disability Insurance Scheme, funded by the Australian Federal Government.

NDIS Respite care is a special program that helps caregivers of people with disabilities take a break. It provides temporary care and support for the person with a disability, giving the caregivers some time off to rest and recharge.

Respite with Linda provides this service in conjunction with the NDIS, and the Carer Gateway support programs for children aged 5-17 with Disabilities.

What we Do

Complete Care & Comforts

This means Complete Care & All Their Comforts Seen to 24 Hours a day From 4PM Friday - Until 4PM Sunday - Linda's Place will become your Child's home away from home. 

Our short term accommodation means giving you time for a break from your normal caregiving duties. A weekend is also a great amount of time for children to create new memories and make new friends!

You don’t need to worry about a thing when your child visits us – we take care of all meals, bedding, activities and caregiving so you can go home, relax and take care of you.
