Transitional Support

After a long time in hospital, it’s a relief to go home. But sometimes, it’s not that simple.

If you have a complex disability or an acquired neurological disability, finding suitable long-term accommodation following a hospital stay can be challenging.

Brightwater provides a live-in program in Marangaroo, helping you bridge the gap between hospital and the community. This temporary option provides the appropriate support you need while you look for permanent accommodation.

Am I eligible for transitional support?

Transitional support is often referred to as the Long Stay Younger Persons (LSYP) program.

To be eligible, you will need to be:

  • Referred by a Perth metropolitan public hospital
  • Medically stable
  • Working towards moving into long-term accommodation
  • Eligible for funding through the Disability Services Commission (DSC), the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or the Insurance Commission of WA (ICWA)

For more information on transitional support, call 1300 223 968.
