All parents hope their children will grow to become independent and responsible for their own future and in some cases support you in your later years.
For those with a disability this is often not possible and as the years progress they and their elderly parents find themselves with no choice but to live apart and often at distance simply due to a lack of suitable or available accommodation.
The pulling apart of any family is a situation no parent or child would wish to find themselves in, it is however a reality. Thankfully you can do something about it by giving a gift to our Homes4Life appeal.
In partnership with the Queensland Government we have built four specialised units at Jardine Street, Rockhampton. Demand has far outstripped the number of units available, so we need to build more and we are aiming to raise one-million dollars over the next twelve months to build two more Homes4Life to specifically cater for ageing parents and their children with disabilities. This innovative project will promote independence and for the first time give parents the choice of being able to live nearby or together.
With your donation to our Homes 4 Life campaign we will build two more Homes4Life to help meet demand. Most importantly we will keep families together and continue to provide innovative care and support for people with high needs disabilities and their families.
