Respite and Accommodation Services

Caring Choice operates over twenty respite cottages located throughout Adelaide, regional South Australia, and in the picturesque Adelaide Hills.

We cater for all respite needs including children, adults and the elderly. Our vision is to provide flexibility within our cottages, suitable for planned respite or emergency respite.

Caring Choice Cottages provide the perfect setting for short or long term stays. We aim to ensure the highest quality of care and support. Our purpose is to maximise the health and wellbeing of South Australians by maintaining or regaining individual independence and by providing appropriate and customised support for individuals.

  • We have intentionally chosen small to medium sized houses to create an intimate, warm and friendly environment.;
  • Safety of individuals is the major priority, and the cottages have been modified as appropriate to achieve this goal;
  • Cottages are guided by our Babysitting Licence and meet the requirements of Licences and Standards.
