One for those who enjoy nature and being outdoors

This fully accessible home is located at the scenic foothills of Kalamunda in Forrestfield, and is one of three units on this site, so there is no shortage of friendly neighbours.

You will be sharing this particular unit with three others, both male and females aged between their 30 – 60yrs. Your future housemates use some Makaton signing and body language to communicate, enjoy spending time out in the sunshine in the courtyard area, and getting involved in tending to the gardens. Other interests include listening to music, engaging in sensory activities, and getting out and about in the community. You will have access to a wheelchair accessible vehicle that is based at the house for outings and appointments.

The vacant room has direct private access to the courtyard, and has a ceiling hoist installed to support transferring if required. There is a shared accessible bathroom.

Shared support staff (both male and female) are available at the home 24/7, including active overnight support. Support staff receive annual training such as manual handling, seizure & medication management, and regular refreshers in First Aid. Staff can also receive training in specific competencies such as PEG feeding if required. In this particular home, staff are experienced in supporting people who may have Positive Behaviour Support requirements.

If you enjoy being outdoors and experiencing nature, there is an abundance of parks in this area within close proximity to the house.

There are also several other amenities within close distance, such as shops, cafes, and an excellent medical centre and pharmacy.
