Short and Medium Stay and Assistance

At GSL, we offer Short Term Accommodation Assistance to young people with disabilities in a friendly, tailored, family style, residential setting.

 

Our Residential Short Term Accommodation service is based in a large family style house in Manunda closely located to our Learning and Life Skills facility.  We offer guests an opportunity for a complete break from their usual living circumstances by providing tailored cared for short periods or for longer stays.  Support is provided to meet individual needs and is negotiated with our guests, their family / carer(s), and documented in our mandatory induction sessions. 

 

If required, guest’s usual routines and actives can be continued where possible.  For those guests who do not have daily activities organised, our Short-Term Accommodation staff members will support guests with suitable activities during the day.  All our guests are encouraged to participate as active members of the household to ensure any skills being built upon are maintained and new learning opportunities are being presented. 

Sample Household activities: Game Night, Menu Planning, Cooking, Budgeting. 

 

Up to 3 guests can stay at the house at any one time, although additional placements may be available in emergency situations.
