Our Supported Living choices provide emergency respite accommodation and support adults in acquiring the skills to live more independently.
Overnight and emergency respite is available on short notice in the case of housing crises, unexpected illness of a carer or when someone’s care is relinquished. Overnight respite can also be arranged with advance notice to give carers and the person living with a disability a break from the daily routine.
Through this program we also provide long-term accommodation to support individuals to live more independently in a residential environment for extended period of time. Participants may move to our transitional living program which supports adults with low to moderate care needs in acquiring the skills to live in a communal, semi-supported environment or to take the step from the comfort of the family home to their own, independent living arrangement.
Our houses are comfortably furnished, fully equipped, accessible and fitted with supporting equipment for participants with complex care needs. Our support staff are qualified to use all equipment, administer medication and provide first aid.
Participants are encouraged to actively engage in communal living, for example by sharing housekeeping chores, grocery shopping and the preparation of meals. This provides greater stability and also gives participants an opportunity to build skills in communal living and forge friendships.
