Supported Independent Living

Adjusting to life’s new circumstances can be tough, especially if the place you live in isn’t set up to suit.

We offer accommodation that lets you live as independently as possible, with added support for daily living, including grocery shopping and meal planning, administering medication and assistance with personal care and attending health-related appointments. Our team is always on hand to help out, offering one-on-one assistance whenever you need it.

Of course, we want you to feel at home. That means we’ll help decorate your new room, we’ll embrace your shoe collection and we’ll encourage your hobbies.

And with Brightwater, nobody gets left behind. We’ll keep you in the loop when there’s something fun going on - and we’ll be just around the corner when you’re doing your own thing.

Our Disability Communities

With 8 sharehouses across Perth, including two that specialise in supporting people with Huntington's disease, there’s a Brightwater home you can belong to.

We currently have two vacancies in Bentley for low-level support needs, one vacancy in Cannington for low-level support needs, and one vacancy in Warnbro for high-level support needs. 

 

Accommodation that suits you

We look at what works for you, including where your friends and family live, what’s around your new neighbourhood and if your new housemates are a good fit.

All of our homes are:

  • Accessible and functional, with modifications like hoists, ramps and handles available if required
  • Close to local amenities, community services and public transport
  • Equipped with a shared computer and WiFi access
  • Supported by trained Brightwater staff, including sleepover shifts and overnight assistance
  • Close-knit and cosy, ranging from six to twelve rooms
  • Shared by three or more people, each with their own room

If you have NDIS or private funding, we can also help you access allied health services including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work and more.
