02 February, 2023

Rest, recover or simply take a breather from your usual routine—what is it you need from your respite care stay? At Odyssey, we’re here to provide exactly the level of care and support you need, all within our resort-style community. So if you’re looking for respite care on the Gold Coast, here’s what you can expect at Odyssey.


Soak up the VIP experience

From the moment you arrive at Odyssey, you’ll be treated like a VIP. Firstly, our team will welcome you and help you settle into your very own luxury apartment or room. Our goal is for you to feel totally at home within your private space. Your apartment (or room) will feature all your creature comforts including toiletries, linen, crockery, cutlery, snacks, tea, coffee and treats.


Get acquainted with the community

When you’re settled, our staff will ensure you’re informed about our community safety measures as well as meal times and activities. For as long as you stay with us, each day is yours to fill as you please—just let us know what your preferences are and how we can support you to enjoy every minute! You’ll also have the option to dine in your apartment or our restaurant. Either way, you’ll get to experience our chef-made, five-star gourmet food for yourself.


Access care when you need it

Shortly after you arrive, you’ll meet a member of our care team. At Odyssey, all our residents and respite care guests have access to 24/7 care. Our professional care team is made up of registered nurses, enrolled nurses, carers and an onsite doctor. We can provide all levels of care—from dispensing medication to routine checkups in the privacy of your apartment or room; or higher-level care should you require it. So, whatever your needs or whenever you need support during your stay, we can be there for you.


Kick back, relax and let us help you

We’re here to make your stay in respite care as relaxing as possible—that includes ensuring your apartment is kept clean, tidy and comfortable every day. Our housekeeping team will take care of it all, from making the bed to taking out the rubbish, doing the laundry and daily tidy-ups. It’s just like staying in a hotel. And, if you ever need anything else, all you need to do is call our Concierge desk with your request.


Get a taste of the Odyssey lifestyle

While you stay with us, our beautiful community is yours to delight in. You’ll get the chance to explore everything—from our five-star restaurant, sky gardens, piano lounge, library, boutique gymnasium and more. And you’re invited to join in on the fun, too! Our residents regularly get together for scheduled entertainment, events and activities in and around the Gold Coast. Our Lifestyle Coordinators will gladly fill you in if you want to know more.

“It’s hard to say how much I loved every one of your staff—the cleaners, the chefs, the servers, nurse and carer—they were all so helpful. And I cannot leave out the admin staff. I had a great time. I only hope that you will allow me back again.”
