Living in the home
Encompass Community Services provides support services based in accommodation.
Our accommodation team use person-centered active support to encourage residents to develop daily living skills that enhance independence and participate in the local community.
Encompass have two accommodation houses in Grovedale area and were recently approached by three families to provide support to their daughters, who wish to move out and live independently together in Torquay. This house was opened in February 2019.
One of the houses has a dog named Tucker, who was requested by the residents and has been welcomed into the group with open arms.
These services are long-term, shared supported accommodation services across Geelong and the Surf Coast. They are set up to be secure, comfy and homelike, giving as much independence as possible.
