Respite with Linda specialises in weekend, overnight and emergency respite care for children and young people with special needs.

Servicing the Greater Brisbane area and the Sunshine Coast from our comfortable family home in Morayfield.

Our team is experienced and trained in supporting the needs of children and young people with many different abilities and diagnoses including –

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Aspergers
  • ADHD
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Caring for children and young people to age 18.

Respite with Linda is open from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Longer stays, public holidays, and school holidays, can be arranged upon request.

A ‘meet and greet’ is an important first step for all new clients. During this session, Linda will gather loads of information about your child’s unique needs to ensure you and your child feel secure and comfortable.

Care is provided in an inclusive group setting, with a thoughtfully planned program that is based on each child’s individual goals. We aim to support every child’s independence, social and economic participation and enable them to exercise choice and control in the pursuit of their goals and the planning and delivery of your supports.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

"Bless you Linda for the loving care given to children that others find ‘too hard’ and for the break it gives the families… Can’t recommend you enough to other parents of special kids… Speaking from experience here."
- Arna
“As my child has a disability, I’m very particular about who cares for him. I find Linda extremely understanding of my child’s needs and he is totally comfortable staying with her. I find her professional, approachable and supportive. Her communication skills with both my son and myself are excellent. Linda’s knowledge of special needs and her regular attendance at professional development courses, makes her an ideal carer for my son. I’m very happy and very grateful for having Linda in our lives.”
- Peggy
