Independent Living Services

Carpentaria’s Independent Living program provides person-centred support and accommodation to enable people with a disability to access and enjoy a safe, comfortable and fulfilling life in their home and in the community. Short, medium, transitional and long term accommodation options are available.

Through a highly individualised approach, participants are supported to reach goals, make their own choices and maintain control over the way they wish to live their lives.

Our Independent Living program features:

  • Person-centred active support which enables participants to enjoy the maximum quality of life
  • Pro-active connection with community facilities, activities and events
  • Tailored support to develop each individual’s potential in all aspects of daily living
  • Highly qualified Specialist Disability Workers with comprehensive training in first aid, epilepsy, diabetes and medication administration and management

We encourage dialogue and build relationships by constantly refining ways of sharing information between staff, service users, families, community organisations and external services and we work collaboratively to facilitate social and economic participation.
