St Jude’s Opens a New Accommodation Home in Southern River

2020 is the beginning of yet another decade of wonderful services at St Jude’s and kicking it off is the opening of St Jude’s new supported accommodation home in Southern River. St Jude’s Disability Services is always expanding their services across the State and this new modern home boasts a spacious layout with a fully enclosed back yard – perfect for socialising and entertaining. Three St Jude’s Disability Services residents will be moving in and beginning their new journey in their own home over the coming weeks. St Jude’s Person-Centred Approach service delivery means that the home has been set-up to meet the unique and individual needs of the residents, cared and supported for by dedicated staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

One of the residents who can’t wait to move in is Nathan. Over the last 18 months, Nathan has been hospitalised and waiting for his supported accommodation to be ready and available. As part of St Jude’s Person-Centred Approach for their customers, Nathan will live in a home customised for him with activities developed around his favourite things to do which includes surfing. He is looking forward to catching the waves at Coogee Beach! Back at home, the fully enclosed backyard will support Nathan to follow his other passion for growing his own greens! A veggie and herb patch is on the cards and he is waiting to dig into the soil, plant, grow and reap his very own harvest.

More St Jude’s Disability Services accommodation homes will open in the coming months. If you know of someone like Nathan, and who can benefit from the Person-Centred Approach programs by St Jude’s Disability Services contact St Jude’s Accommodation for options, call us on 9279 4343 or email
