Afford offers Respite Accommodation in Lakemba with a home that is specifically tailored to suit the various needs of our clients.

Respite is a great opportunity to take some time out away from the everyday and to meet new friends and enjoy new experiences in a welcoming and supportive environment.

Recently, the clients of Lakemba Respite decided that they would set a goal to maintain the garden and lawn.

Clients and staff worked together to mow the lawns, tend to weeds in the garden and watering the garden to get it back to its best.

Not only was it a great opportunity to get out into the sunshine and spend some time with friends, it also presented participants with the chance to take ownership of the maintenance of the garden and advance their cognitive and social skills in a fun way.

Success! The gardening team achieved their goal and had a fun time in the process!
