Give yourself a break and share the care at Paradise Cottage
About Paradise Cottage
Paradise Cottage located in Sanctuary Point, is in an inviting, peaceful setting close to local attractions.
This safe, comfortable cottage style home offers Carers an opportunity to book overnight short stay accommodation (up to 4 nights) for the person they care for. This gives the carer some “Time Out” to relax and catch up on their other interests.
The cottage has two Trained Support Workers available at all times providing assistance with daily care needs in a supportive and friendly environment.
Paradise Cottage accommodates 5 people with Support Workers available to assist the person you care for throughout their stay by providing home cooked meals, local outings, and fun relaxing activities.
Goal orientated support plans are designed taking into account individual support needs and preferences.
The cottage is for people who have a carer and are approved through My Aged Care for cottage respite. The program is funded by the Australian Government.
The cottage phone is only answered when cottage is in progress and only available for carers of participating consumers at the time of service (44439996). For all booking inquires contact the aged care office 44433434.
