McCallum’s new respite house in St Arnaud – 'A home away from home'
In March this year, McCallum is opening a new state of the art, purpose built and spacious respite home in St Arnaud. The building consists of 1 x 4 bedroom unit and a 1 x 2 bedroom unit which is wheel chair accessible, with an interconnecting staff room with ensuite. These modern units are airy, bright and decorated with modern furnishings, fittings and colours. The house has a large and fenced garden area. It is also in close proximity to St. Arnauds shopping centre and other amenities. The units will be staffed 24 x 7 with a sleepover model.
McCallum is striving for the respite home to be a safe and comfortable ‘home away from home’ for all residents.
The respite staff will support the residents to be as independent as possible and to be part of the community, as well as encouraging new social experiences. Residents will take part in a robust planning process to make sure that their goals are met whilst staying at the house.
