Long-term supported accommodation for adults with disabilities
Karawatha Community consists of:
four refurbished one-bedroom units, each with kitchen and bathroom. These units suit residents who already have some independent living skills.
a four-bedroom, purpose-designed house with ensuite accommodation for three residents and 24/7 live-in support staff. The house caters well for clients with high needs.
Our experienced and caring staff work with residents to develop their day-to-day life skills so they can live as independently as possible. Our community is modern and tranquil, thanks to its design and beautiful bushland setting on the border of Karawatha State Forest at Trinder Park, south of Brisbane.
Why choose Karawatha Community?
Experience: Lutheran Community Care (LCC) is a well-established not-for-profit organisation and one of Queensland’s largest providers of aged care, family services and disability services. We operate more than 20 services across urban and regional Queensland.
Quality support: Our residents can opt to receive support from any service provider, which may include LCC’s disability service Keystone – a ten minute walk from Karawatha. Keystone is focused on supporting clients to live the life they choose. It offers a range of services including a centre-based day service, specific skills training, and case management assistance. The Keystone staff who work in our four-bedroom house are experienced disability workers who use up-to-date, proven approaches (based on research and evidence) to help residents develop their life skills.
Location: We are close to public transport (bus and train) and many local services. We are also located adjacent to LCC’s Trinder Park aged care service which can provide current or future accommodation options for our residents’ family members.
The construction of the Karawatha Community accommodation was partly funded by the Queensland Government, Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services’ Elderly Parent Carer Innovation Trial.
