Short Term Accommodation (Respite Care)

Hartley Lifecare provides centre-based respite care (short term accommodation) to people with disability. Residential respite care is 24/7 care in specialist disability accommodation for a short period of time.

Carers sometimes need to take a break from the physical and emotional demands of their role. Respite allows them to be able to take ‘time out’ with real peace of mind. The person with disability also benefits from the increased social activity available in the respite care. 

If you are interested in discussing respite care options please contact Chinedu Nwakor - Disability Programs Manager (STA) on 02 6282 4411 or at 

Hartley's Renaissance House

In 2017, Hartley successfully applied for a direct sale of land from the ACT Government, with the aim to build an (STA) respite facility in Chapman ACT.

Construction is now complete, and the project managers from Renaissance Homes, through their strong connection with the local community, have continued to work with businesses to obtain ‘in kind’ contributions, discounts and competitive prices for almost all of the goods and services required. This is especially humbling given the challenging economic times everyone is currently facing.

A special mention to Amanda Kiley from OMNi Interiors for working with us on a probono basis to design the colour palate for both the exterior and interior, along with designing and choosing the furnishings, artwork, appliances and general décor.

Accommodating up to four people, Hartley’s Renaissance House was built to comply with the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) standard and aligns with the High Physical Support category. The design incorporates contemporary features such as open plan living, maximisation of natural light, individual living spaces and assistive technology.

Construction was completed in early 2021. For enquiries and bookings at this 5 star STA facility, please contact our Disability Programs Manager (STA), Chinedu Nwakor on 0436 015 556.
