Whether you live in Melbourne or planning to head there for a holiday, Afford has now opened its first Short Term Accommodation in VIC to give locals and travellers alike more access to respite services.
The new respite service in Cranbourne West provides locals and their families and carers with the opportunity to take a break from the everyday, meet new people and spend time getting involved in new life experiences that they enjoy.
For families and carers with loved ones who are planning a trip to Melbourne and would like the benefit of respite services during their stay, the Cranbourne West Short Term Accommodation provides a home away from home. With support staff available to care for the needs of every individual, families can be assured their loved one can explore their interests and, most importantly, have fun.
For Ian, Afford’s new Short Term Accommodation provided the care he needed while he confirmed supports under his NDIS plan and waited for his new Afford home in Point Cook to be ready.
“In the very beginning, when I rang and saw the Point Cook home on the Housing Hub website, Kirstin answered the phone. Kirstin told me about the other residents she felt I’d be a good fit for. Chatting away, I let slip that I was looking for a new Support Coordinator too,” explained Ian.
Kirsten set up an appointment to see the house with Josh, the Team Leader. I met Josh and Ellen [support coordinator] at the home in Point Cook and then everything rolled into action. It was like a breath of fresh air. I had caught the wave that brought me back into shore.
Ellen helped me get my new [NDIS] plan happening to move into the Point Cook home. Everything then unfolded and Afford took over, arranged everything for me, and made sure everything went into my new [NDIS] plan.
I had to move out from my current accommodation provider in mid-January and Afford organised for me to move into their respite home in Cranbourne West until my new home was ready.
I’m looking forward to the next phase of my life once I settle into my new home. Thank you, Afford.”
Afford’s respite services offer quality, short term accommodation in a comfortable and relaxed environment where individuals are supported to try new things and make new friends.
