For those times when everyone just needs a break, we provide 24-hour support in accommodation at our Cook St house in Atherton. The house provides overnight care, 7 days per week. With up to four clients able to stay at a time, the house has built up a reputation of being a caring, supportive and enjoyable “home away from home” for people living with a disability.
Clients are encouraged and supported to participate in a variety of activities whilst at Cook Street, both indoors and outdoors. Some activities we offer at Cook Street include:
• Access to a sensory room
• Music sessions
• Craft sessions
• Fun days with BBQ’s and games
• Outings into the community and local attractions including Tinaroo Dam, Lake Eacham, local parks and whatever other activities or events are being held
Younger clients at the home often feel they have gained some independence away from their families whilst their parents have peace of mind knowing that their child is being appropriately supported.
Our support at Cook Street is based on a 1 support worker to 2 clients (1:2) ratio, however, we have the ability to scale down to 1:4 or up to 1:1.
