 Accommodation Stays


RSA provide a 12 bed disability respite home in the heart of Thornbury, just minutes from Thornbury train station. We aim to provide excellent service and care to anyone who comes through our doors.

We have specialised rooms to cater for both high and low physical needs, and while we encourage and promote privacy and dignity. All rooms have direct access to a shared bathroom (2 rooms max per bathroom).

We also offer 2 bed rooms if a participant wishes to share with a friend. There is also a large living area and a breakout room for rest and relaxation.

All of our rooms include hospital grade electric beds which are adjustable to support additional needs, and all clients will be in single rooms unless requested otherwise.



All of our meals are home-made and are low in fat and salt.  Our main goal in meal preparation is that if it doesn’t look like something you would serve your family, then we won’t serve it here! 

Many of our meals are based on traditional family recipes, except on Fridays as that’s takeaway night!

If additional support is required for specific meal time processes or specialised foods, we are happy to discuss how we can assist with this.



On weekends we offer a range of activities including trips out to various locations around Melbourne via train, or on-site activities, such as art or gardening.  If participants would prefer, they are also welcome to have down time at the centre.

All activities are pre-organised, and arranged according to participant requests and staffing needs.


Hours of Operation

We offer 24 hour respite care every day of the year, including Christmas Day and Good Friday.



Whilst we are proud of our industry experience, our qualified and friendly team and our array of services, we thought it would be nice for you to hear from some of our very own clients. So, don’t just take our word. Have a look at what the many Australians who have worked with RSA Disability Support Services have to say.

From the time I made contact with Jason from Respite Services Australia and arranged an interview, I new that this was the place for our Granddaughter. On viewing the facility we immediately felt the warmth and energy within the home. The process was seamless on admission and the staff very co operative and attentive to our requests. Our Granddaughter enjoyed her stay with comments like I've made some new friends, food was great, good bed, with many activities on offer and I loved the karaoke machine. The staff were very helpful and respectful toward us and our Granddaughter. I would recommend this facility and have already made plans for future visits.

My father landed in the ICU quite suddenly after Christmas and we needed emergency assistance and care for my brother. Respite Services Australia delivered on exceptional care and support for him, and really showed their level of compassion and understanding during what was a difficult time for our family. After our father passed, we continued accessing their services for my brother and the support the workers and management team have given has been second to none. It has really felt like family caring for family. I could not recommend them high enough.
