LIVING WITH MY FAMILY OR ON MY OWN

Do you wish to remain living with your family or want to return to living with your family at home after living somewhere else? Or perhaps you wish to live on your own? You may own your home are be renting. Either way we can help with the support you need to live by yourself.

Our dedicated support workers can come into your home at different times of the day and week to assist you to be as independent as you wish to be.

Together, we will work out just what you need and want and then provide you with the support. How this looks, or what services you want, will be entirely up to you.

SHARING WITH ONE OR MORE OTHER PEOPLE

Sharing your home with other people with similar interests is a great option if you want to live with other people, but still want to live as independently as you can. This is also a great transition for when you are thinking about moving out and living on your own but are not quite ready yet.

LIVING WITH AN ALTERNATIVE FAMILY CARER HOST FAMILY

Do you wish to live with another family as an alternative to living with your own family at home? Senses can help you choose a family to live with, as we know of a number of families who would love to have you live with them. We would help you to choose the family that best suits you and who you feel most comfortable living with. Your chosen family would assist you will all the help that you need.

HOME SHARER

If you wish to share your home with someone, or perhaps even a couple of people with similar interests to you, a homeshare arrangement may be right for you.

Your housemate/s could support you with the things that you would need help with at particular times, such as evenings and overnight. It all depends on what you want and when you need the support. Support workers can still come into your home to help you at other times.
