Located in Brisbane South, the Salam Cottage is home away from home for carers to place their loved ones.
The Salam Respite Cottage provides day and/or overnight respite to carers of older people, people with dementia or young people with a disability. “Cottage Respite” is the term for the type of day and night respite which has the aim to relieve the carer. The carer can leave the care to the friendly staff of the Respite Cottage.
The Salam Respite Centre offers four single rooms and one emergency bed. There is a large covered outdoor area and the centre is wheelchair friendly and secured. The staff are well-known for being able to cater successfully for clients of a variety of cultural and religious background e.g. halal, vegetarian, aged-person friendly. Staff are carefully chosen to ensure the quality of caring that you would expect is of high standard as they are experienced, multi-lingual, qualified and flexible to care recipients’ needs.
The Coordinator, the prospective client and his or her family or advocate, meet and discuss what are the needs and future hopes and plans. A program is then developed in consultation with all parties.
