Plateia Program

Plateia is a short term respite program that is unique to St Basil’s. Available to clients who live with any type of disability, Plateia provides dedicated and individually tailored opportunities for our clients to enjoy the freedom of various cultural activities that they may have enjoyed in the past.

Supported by a program coordinator, accredited care workers and volunteers, Plateia also provides one convenient location for treatment by allied health practitioners such as podiatrists and physiotherapists.

When mum could no longer be left on her own, Plateia gave her a purpose in life, keeping her mentally stimulated through activities like crafts, discussions, games, singing and dancing. Plateia gives me peace of mind that mum is in a safe and caring environment when I'm at work.
