A Welcomed Break is dementia-specific centre-based respite program with 2 locations in the Northern Rivers. The program operates from 10am – 3pm, each weekday at Brunswick Heads and 4 days a week from Lennox Head (public holidays excluded).

Our Welcomed Break Program is at the heart of our organisation that was founded in 1991 with the purpose providing a social and wellbeing outlet to local residents and a welcomed break for carers. Our program Facilitators, staff and volunteers are highly experienced in developing and delivering a high calibre of dementia care that enriches the lives of clients, participants and carers. A Welcomed Break is a highly popular program that builds connections through meaningful activities and engagement. Creative and enjoyable activities include gentle exercise, performers, arts & crafts, music and cognitive stimulation and enable people to experience, develop and social interaction while offering respite to the carer.
