A number of modern accommodation units have been built in recent years by ConnectGV to provide supported accommodation for up to 6 people in each home, and more recently to provide independent living options. Each accommodation option is located within a community setting, close to shops and community facilities enabling increased opportunities and independence whilst also providing the individualised support required. The various options available are as follows.
Staff within these facilities provide support to residents at all times when they are not attending supported employment or day options. Each resident has a separate bedroom that they have furnished in the colours and the style of choice. Modern furnishings and appliances ensure a comfortable living situation for residents and pleasant working conditions for staff. Activities are regularly offered and range from backyard BBQ’s in summer, shopping, picnics, fishing trips and other recreational activities including bowling and movies. Day trips to other towns are also regularly enjoyed.
In addition, ConnectGV provides management and staff support in two Government built facilities where residents need a higher level of support due to behavioural issues.
My Future My Choice
In October 2010, ConnectGV opened the My Future My Choice house. This residential option was funded by the Department of Human Services and is now managed by ConnectGV. The house was constructed to provide 24 hour support to up to six young people with a disability that are either living permanently in residential aged care or whose parents are aged 65 years or older. Residents are able to enjoy their own space with their visiting family and friends, which has been tailored to their individual needs and style, or can access the spacious and welcoming common indoor living areas, or landscaped gardens.
Independent Living Units
ConnectGV's most recent accommodation options, the Independent Living Units and the Respite Unit, opened in April 2013. The independent living units offer residents the opportunity to live independently however with access to support twice per day should they choose to access this. The units are modern and fully self-contained, each with their own courtyard area. Residents also have the option of utilising the common kitchen and lounge areas.
