Xavier Place Brisbane: Out of home respite for children with high support needs

Xavier Place is our newly renovated, 6 bed out of home respite centre situated in the Brisbane suburb of Yeerongpilly.

What to expect at Xavier Place

At Xavier Place your child, teenager or young person will receive the quality of care that they need to support their needs. For the safety and comfort of our guests Xavier Place is fully accessible with hi-lo beds and ceiling hoists in each bedroom as well as state-of-the-art security.

There’s lots of fun to be had too and opportunities for your child, teenager or young person to hang out with others their own age and participate in some fun activities. At Xavier Place we enjoy:

  • Outings into the local community
  • Hanging out in the sensory room
  • Listening to music and playing along on our instruments
  • Outdoor movies under the stars in the warmer months
  • Lots of games on our activity table
  • Connecting with nature in our garden

The team at Xavier Place

Our Support Workers are trained by Occupational Therapists and Registered Nurses to provide the quality care required for children and young people with complex needs. We run overnight wake and sleep shifts and have a Registered Nurse on call to provide further support if needed. Our on-site coordinator manages the day-to-day running of Xavier Place supporting guests and families.
