ABOUT US

We offer flexible respite and social support to:

  • People over 65 who are experiencing difficulties in day to day living
  • NDIS participants
  • Veterans
  • Younger individuals with a disability
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
  • People with dementia
  • Financially disadvantaged people
  • Socially isolated people
  • Carers of the above

Each client is individually assessed in their home prior to commencement.   The offer of  flexible respite depends upon the needs of the consumer and the ability of the Centre to offer appropriate care.

Volunteering

Volunteers play a very important part in our program. We could not deliver the same high quality services without their input. In-House and external training are offered to all volunteers at no cost.

Volunteers assist with activities, helping in the kitchen . Provide a listening ear, bringing joy with the art of conversation. We appreciate our volunteers who willingly share their skills teaching craft, cooking, or entertaining clients with music or sharing information

Volunteer recognition events are held twice a year. LCRC also submits nominations to City of Logan Volunteer Awards as well as State Volunteering Awards. Volunteers attend the Logan Volunteer Breakfast in May each year. Our Volunteers have been successful of several awards over the years including the Davida Steele Memorial Award for Outstanding Community Organisations, several times.

If you can give some of your time to help our Respite Centre fulfil its aims, and provide a vital service to carers in our community we would be delighted to welcome you to our team. Anyone who is interested in our Volunteer Program please contact the Centre for further information on 3208 8888 or 3208 6666
