Everyone needs a break sometimes

For almost 90 years, the Brotherhood of St Laurence has worked with and supported people of all ages to live a good life. That means ensuring those who need support and a break when they are caring for a loved one can access a local service.  

BSL has offered respite care and social connections to the community for more than 30 years and proudly continues to do so during the COVID-19 outbreak, with strict additional infection control measures to keep everyone safe and well.

The Banksia Frankston Respite Centre is truly a home away from home. As one of the only cottage-style respite residences in the area, guests enjoy delicious meals, comfortable beds and a range of daily social activities, all in a warm and welcoming environment.

Whether it’s for a day, an overnight stay or longer, dedicated staff take the time to get to know their clients, families and carers, to understand their personal requirements and offer respite care that’s tailored to fit their needs and wishes. 

As dementia care specialists, highly qualified nurses and staff are trained to deliver support that focuses on individual preferences. Staff work with carers to replicate home routines to avoid confusion or disruption, and offer guests the opportunity to engage with others and to develop new social connections through recreational activities.

Banksia Frankston Respite Services is funded under the Commonwealth Home Support Program, Support for Carers Program and Home Care Packages.

Everyone needs a break and extra support sometimes.
