Special respite services to give you an important break

Bakery Hill is rated by many locals as one of the 10 best suburbs in the central highlands region. Being an inner-city suburb, it's close to everything you need. There's great shopping and cafes, and you're not far from the fabulous Lake Esmond Botanical Garden and Lake Wendouree which are lovely places to relax and unwind.

If you're a carer, short breaks should be a regular part of your life. This is where Melba Support Services can help. As a trusted NDIS provider Victoria, our professional respite services near Bakery Hill can take over the support while you take some time off.
