The Garden City Multi Service Centre operates from 2 cottage-style homes located in Mt Gravatt, offering respite care, 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, in a secure, home-like setting.
Our homes are suitable for people living with dementia or the frail aged, as well as those over 65 seeking opportunities for social and community engagement.
We also offer centre-based and in-home respite care, which gives carers and families a well-earned break to recharge and attend to daily life, safe in the knowledge their loved one is being well looked after.
Centre-based respite & social support
Our respite services provide social interaction for our clients, and a well-earned break for their carers. Our clients participate in social and wellness activities, small group outings, community functions and local clubs, all tailored to meeting the interests of each individual.
We also offer our clients assistance with shopping and medication management. Accessed hourly or daily, our flexible service offering provides opportunities for weekend, early morning, and evening respite.
Overnight & emergency respite
Families may access respite for up to a week. All meals and activities are provided through our Centre, and can be arranged at relatively short notice.

With an ACAT assessment, a package can be provided according to the needs of each individual. Services include:
- Clinical nursing
- Personal support

Carer education & support
We run Carer Support Group Meetings, offering carers a valuable way to obtain information and receive support from staff, guest speakers and other carers. We also provide library services, education and information sessions, telephone support groups and a 24-hour Dementia Help Line –1800 639 331.
We perform regular client reviews to ensure our provision of an appropriate level of care, support and opportunities for independence.
Funded allied health services, such as at home occupational therapy, physiotherapy, podiatry and speech therapy are available to residents in the local area and aim to maintain, or restore wellness and independence.
We accept referrals from family or friends, medical practitioners, nurses and any other members of the community. Alzheimer’s Queensland can support you through the process to obtain a My Aged Care referral.
