Does your loved one wish to live more independently? Do you wish to have? If you answered yes to either of the questions, our supported living services might just be what you need.
At Medicare Support and Housing we offer supported living as one of our esteemed services. Supported living (or supportive living) helps individuals who require a variety of support, retain their independence, and also receive extra physical and psychosocial support, which are a necessity in leading more fulfilled lives within their own allocated living quarters. This service is the best option when you do not wish to live in residential care but would have difficulties in coping with day to day tasks.
When you sign up for supported living, you are allocated your own living quarters with their own tenancy agreement. You will have the free choice to choose whether to live alone or to share your living quarters with other people. The type of housing we offer include self-contained flats, houses and completely tailored options. Some of our houses are equipped with assistive technology services which are meant for you and/or your loved ones to learn the skills you need for daily living. You are also eligible to receive support and care according to your needs, which can range from a few hours per day to 24hours.
