Yooralla’s respite (short-term) accommodation for adults

Yooralla offers specialist respite (short-term) accommodation for adults with disability and complex needs in Melbourne’s East

Our short-term accommodation, located in Box Hill, is dedicated to supporting people between 18 to 65 years old. It is a fun and safe place for the person you care for to stay, with an individualised focus on their specific needs.

A great place to stay

Our team can create an experience tailored to the interests of the person you care for. If it’s musical interests, then they can let out their inner pop star with our karaoke machine and keyboard; if they are interested in arts and crafts, we have a great range of activities. We also have many sensory experiences, including gardening, and for those who like movies, we have movie nights (of course with freshly made popcorn!). The property has WiFi throughout, with Smart TV’s to access Foxtel and Netflix. On Sundays, staff and customers enjoy a barbeque on the large, covered deck area. Additionally, we support life skills activities including cooking, gardening, personal care, money management and day to day living. We involve customers in the decision-making process when it comes to planning the activities they enjoy.

Individual rooms, space and privacy

The house has 12 bedrooms (4 in each unit), all with built-in wardrobes, and four bathrooms all with H-track ceiling hoists. There are three distinct, extra-large living zones, with each zone containing a large living area, open plan kitchen, laundry, three bedrooms and one bathroom – all connected by a welcoming hallway. The house has heating and cooling throughout the property, with additional split systems in each bedroom. There are a variety of outdoor areas, including an expansive, covered entertaining area. We offer an active night model where staff attend to any overnight support needs.

Compatibility focus

To ensure safety and comfort, the compatibility of our guests is essential. Before commencing a stay with us, we will consider the age, gender, health needs, interests and wishes of the person you care for, to ensure guests are well-suited and likely to enjoy each other’s company.

Supporting carers

Yooralla’s Respite Accommodation can assist you, your family and carers to take a break from daily routines. It provides a break for those in need of a little time out, or to get to personal appointments, or to spend time with other family members.

Flexible arrangements

Yooralla’s Respite Accommodation is fully flexible and able to support individual support needs and activities. Understanding individual requirements and preferences is our priority. Respite stays can vary from one night to several weeks. Drop off and pick up times are also flexible to suit you. The house is located near Box Hill Shopping Village, with Laburnum train station a short drive away.

Outstanding staff support

Following an initial assessment, support needs are tailored with the right staffing level. All our staff are experienced and trained and have a NDIS Worker Screening Check clearance or a National Police Record Check clearance (where relevant).
