About the Vacancy
Number of Vacancies = 1
There is one vacancy in this home, suited to either male or female aged between 50 and 65 with mild-moderate disabilities and/or Mental health support needs. The current residents are a 66 year old male and a 68 year old female. They both attend Day Programs on weekdays and enjoy spending time out and about in the community.
The male resident likes history, going out for lunch or dinner, going to the theatre or any show. The female resident loves clothes shopping, dinner outing, crafts, and socializing, music and singing.
