What the service offers
A residential respite care program for children and young people with an intellectual disability. Montrose House (formerly Montrose Cottage) provides a safe and enriching environment where children and young people can develop social skills while giving their families a break from their caring role.
It provides a respite opportunity for families and carers and also assists the children and young people to develop life skills, make new friends and transition to independent living, all within a supportive, family friendly environment.
We offer a fantastic range of activities for children and young people with a disability via our Montrose House respite centre. Check out our 2018 activity programs here:
