Is this the right home for you?
Do you like ten-pin bowling or fishing? What about going to the local RSL for lunch, or playing football? If the answer to any of the above is ‘yes’, then you are going to fit right into this home!
The residents of this home keep pretty busy during the week working, eating out or socialising with friends. But they also enjoy spending time at home watching TV or movies, doing household chores, and relaxing in their rooms.
They are looking for a new housemate that is friendly and respectful to those around them, hopefully with some similar interests that they can enjoy together.
As part of Endeavour Foundation’s My Home, My Life initiative, this brand new home in Hermit Park, Townsville is designed to the platinum standard of Liveable Housing Australia Guidelines and built above and beyond what is required by legislation for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA.)
With an open floor plan and accessible home interior design, the home is fitted with modern safety features, including Tunstall Assistive Technology, which aid independence and offers peace of mind for you and your loved ones. Help buttons are installed in each bedroom, bathroom and living space and there is a provision for additional bespoke assistive technology as required. Home automation features like Smart Home ducted air-conditioning systems with individual room control are also included to keep residents nice and cool during the hot Queensland summers.
Approximately 12kms from the city, this home is accessible by public transport and provides easy access to local support services and amenities including the Stockland shopping centre, Strand beach, cinemas and the local RSL club.
It is just ten minutes’ drive away from the Endeavour Foundation Business Solutions site at Garbutt, offering supported employment opportunities, and 11 minutes’ drive from the Endeavour Foundation Learning & Lifestyle hub at North Ward offering a fantastic year-round calendar of activities and social programs for people with disability.
This home is available for a new tenant in September 2021.
