Cooinda short-term disability respite

Welcome to Cooinda, UnitingCare’s short-term disability accommodation in the township of Warwick in Queensland’s scenic Southern Downs. Set in a picturesque rural landscape, Cooinda – which means Happy Place – is close to amenities and shops, offering the perfect country escape.


Cooinda provides overnight respite for people with disability who require assistance with daily activities or personal care for a short period. The property features three bedrooms, with two shared fully accessible bathrooms/wet rooms and an additional toilet.


The attached daytime activity service provides participants the opportunity to share supports, while enjoying group-based activities or getting out and about on adventures to local and not-so-local attractions, such as Stanthorpe and Queen Mary Falls.


It’s a great opportunity for you to try new things, or for when your usual caregiver is not available.
