centre based respite

a home away from home for older migrants

Spectrum’s Clifton Respite Cottage and Respite Centre Whittlesea offer a warm and inviting setting for older people from cultural and linguistically diverse backgrounds to come together regularly and develop and support their independent and social lives.

Our respite centres are a welcoming and stimulating home away from home, including bilingual support staff, culturally familiar activities – including craft, games, cooking, exercise, outings and health information sessions – culturally appropriate meals prepared onsite, and a full transport service to and from the centre.
