Flexible Respite Options for Care Givers


Helping you to continue caring

Toowoomba Community Care offers a range of affordable group and social respite options allowing you to match the type of respite with the needs of your loved one.

  • Out and about in the community
  • At your home
  • At our day Centre
  • Overnight in our cottage accommodation

We take the time to really understand your routines and any specific needs the person you care for may have. Then we match your loved one with a trained and qualified carer and other like minded clients, creating opportunities for friendship and socialisation.

How much does it cost?

Our programs are very affordable and government subsidies are available for eligible participants. Please contact us to discuss specific details or visit My Aged Care.

  • A wonderful place to spend your day

    Brightside is a wonderful place to spend your day. They have great activities every day, the staff are exceptional at their job and are very friendly and helpful. At Brightside we celebrate the special days throughout the year which is loads of fun.

    Before I came to Brightside I was becoming quite lonely during the day. My wife was worried about me, but since attending Brightside I have made lots of new friends and learnt lots of new skills and games. I attend Brightside two days a week but in 2020 hopefully I will be attending three days a week. I feel happy and my days are no longer lonely.


  • Helping me improve physically and mentally

    I attend the day respite centre and get a lot of enjoyment out of it. However, I have improved both physically and mentally from the 1:1 social outings I do with Toowoomba Community Care. My Support Worker gives me great encouragement which lifts my self-esteem, people in my life are commenting on the difference in me. It’s also a great benefit to have someone to help me with my cleaning, and also enjoy a great conversation while they are in my home.


  • Thank you to the helpful staff

    The staff are very helpful to all. They have been wonderful to me with my home care, they help with personal care, cleaning and also shopping. I don’t know where I would be without them. They are also marvellous with the daily respite. I couldn’t wish for more.

  • A Marvellous Time

    Brightside on Victoria has given us all a very enjoyable time. The visiting entertainers are always great and the company of the other guests is great also. I am sure everyone has a marvellous time.


  • I was looking for friendship and fun.

    At Brightside on Victoria I have found my new friends… I would recommend Brightside for anyone looking to find fun, friendship, and independence in a supportive environment.
