Halwyn Centre

The Halwyn Centre caters for people who have complex high-care needs requiring higher levels of nursing hours than other residential services. All residents are wheelchair dependent with various levels of physical, intellectual, communication, behavioural and developmental health-related issues and receive 24/7 care, including all activities of daily living.

The centre provides permanent residential care and respite care for clients with both intellectual and physical disabilities.

The centre has 43 permanent beds, 9 respite beds and an emergency respite bed. It is located next door to the Red Hill Special School. School-aged clients can attend the school and receive support through the post-school options program.

As well as meals and accommodation, clients can also access:

  • 24-hour registered nursing care
  • activity coordinators
  • social work
  • speech therapy
  • dietitian

  • education program provided by Red Hill Special School.
