Day Respite Cottage

Situated in beautiful, tranquil Sanctuary Point in the Shoalhaven, BCR Communities' Day Respite Cottage is the perfect location for a day away.


We offer a small day-centre respite group tailored specifically for people living with dementia. The group meets every Monday from 9.30am to 2.30pm at the Day Respite Cottage located at
16 Sanctuary Point Road, Sanctuary Point.

Our experienced staff provide care that is responsive and empathetic and aim to promote well-being with meaningful and fun activities. Morning tea and home-cooked lunch is provided and clients feel supported in a comfortable and safe environment.


Carers can have time to relax and recharge at home knowing the person they care for is safe, well-supported and enjoying a range of activities during their day.


Our people

Our professional and experienced care workers will provide ongoing assistance with daily care needs, prepare delicious home-cooked meals and engage clients in a program of activities based around the clients own interests and hobbies.  

Individually tailored programs

Our care team really take the time to get to know the clients and their carers before tailoring a program for their stay. By finding out about daily routines, what they enjoy to eat and their favourite activities and interests, we can ensure our clients feel safe and secure during their day at the cottage.  This also gives carers and families peace of mind. Being next door to the BCR Communities Activities Hub means we have access to an art and music studio, a wood working shed, extensive vegetable and flower gardens and even some friendly chooks! The Cottage also has a range of fun outdoor and indoor games.


The details

 To be eligible to be part of the group at the Day Respite Cottage, you must have a carer and be approved through My Aged Care for Day Respite. Please call 1300 222 748  or email to find out more


“I know Mum will be well looked after when she is at the Cottage and the time apart gives me  a chance to meet up with friends, spend time with my daughters and grandkids, and get things done around the house - it's a chance for me to rest and reset.”
