About us

For carers

The Parkside Foundation offers a range of services to meet the needs of people with disabilities and older members of the community and their carers and families.

Our Community Access service provides a wide range of flexible leisure and recreational services for people with intellectual disabilities in the greater Hobart area.  These services are offered in a variety of settings.

Our services for carers include specific respite for carers of younger people, and for carers of older people with dementia and challenging behaviours and assistance for carers who work.

The Parkside Foundation also works in collaboration with Alzheimers Australia Tasmania, Headway rebuilding lives, South East Tasmanian Aboriginal Corporation and South East Commnity Care to provide a range of respite options.

Contact us for information about any of our services.


The Parkside Foundation is funded by the Australian Government Departments of Social Services and Human Services and by the Tasmanian Government through the Department of Health and Human Services.
