Villa staff work closely with families, friends and carers as well to maintaining communication, connection and relationships with the community.

Residents participate fully in the day to day household operations. They meet regularly to plan everything from menus and shopping to household tasks and activities.

Cooinda Respite is not only for Cooinda participants; we welcome eligible people from across our region or across the state. Respite has sleep over staff and full staffing through the day whilst guests are home.
