Montrose has a long history of supporting young Queenslanders with a disability. In 1933 we started providing aftercare support for children experiencing the effects of polio. Montrose has grown and evolved since then into a multifaceted service provider supporting over 600 children and young adults.
We know that living a satisfying, happy life means something different to everyone. Our goal is to provide comprehensive physical, emotional and social support to people in the community with physical impairment, neuro-muscular disabilities and developmental delay.
The Montrose services include:
- Therapy services
Our highly experienced and friendly allied health teams tailor solutions to each person’s needs. We provide community and clinic based services including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, social work and family support plus early childhood intervention.
- Respite, accommodation and in-home support
We offer a wide variety of personal care, respite and independent supported accommodation for people at various stages of life. From families who might need assistance around the house at busy times to young adults looking to become independent but who might require 24/7 specialised support. Montrose also provides short-stay respite (from a day to a week) for children and young adults to enjoy time with their peers and enable parents and carers to take a break.In-home respite services, regular assistance in the child's home, enabling families to care for their child at home
- Lifestyle and community inclusion programs
Our lifestyle programs offer people the opportunity to learn new skills, prepare for the workforce or education and participate in fun activities. We’re helping children and adults to be active members of their local communities and achieve their goals.
- Accessible holiday options
Everyone with a significant physical impairment or mobility issue knows the challenge of finding somewhere with suitable access and facilities for a holiday. Montrose provides access to uniquely accessible and equipped holiday properties located on the Sunshine Coast at Caloundra and opening in 2016 a new property on the Gold Coast.
