Independent Living

Huon Disability Network

Do you have a child who is interested in living independently?
Are you not in a hurry?
Do you like to live in the Huon?

We have formed a group of interested families, we have identified each needs and interests and are now talking to interested stakeholders to take this project further. This is the early stage of a longer process to develop housing for young people with a disability in the Huon.

We are excited!

If you are eligible for the NDIS, our professional staff can work with you to provide support in your day-to-day life and with self-care, and household jobs. We can also work with you to assist you in building your independence. Anglicare’s services provide value for your money to assist you to make your NDIS plan go further.

We work with you to provide the supports that suit your needs. How we do this will look different for each person but may include support with:

  • Household jobs like cleaning the house or weeding the garden
  • Personal care needs such as getting out of bed, showering or other daily activities
  • Taking your medications
  • Planning and preparing meals, so you eat food you like, and that’s good for you

Supported Independent Living is for anyone over 18 who wants to gain some independence, choice and control but who still wants the security of some support, should they need it. We take pride in finding the right group home for you, where you will live with like-minded people in a comfortable environment with your own private room and space to call your own. Our Supported Independent Living clients enjoy the chance to be an individual, to socialise with friends, gain employment or attend Community Access programs where they can learn new skills or develop hobbies. They have the choice, as adults, to control their own lives and this empowers them to “live life my way”.
