Introducing Interaction’s Empowered Living Apartments (ELAs). Our first ELA site will be in Mt Gravatt, QLD, providing onsite support at all times for adults with PWS. People with PWS – although social – don’t always live well with other people. This is where Interaction’s ELA model provides the best of both worlds. Each person will have their own fully equipped apartment in a complex which also has common areas including a gym, garden and lounge, where they can socialise with friends and staff. This concept reduces the potential anxieties of living with others.
Support will still be provided routinely, however there is great flexibility to develop such skills, and the Social Educator takes a greater mentoring/coach role.
The ELA facility in Mt Gravatt is currently in planning and development stage, a ‘Ground Breaking/Turning of the Sod event will be held at the Mt Gravatt site on Thursday 18 October, 1pm.
Join us in celebrating the wonderful progress being made in relation to care for people with PWS, and the first of its kind PWS accommodation in Australia. Please email us with your name and the number of people you will like to bring along to this event.
