Wanted: Live-In Caretakers – HOME in Queanbeyan

Wanted: live-in Caretakers

HOME in Queanbeyan (HOME) is a community-based initiative that provides 24 hour supported accommodation for twenty people with chronic mental illness in a safe, loving environment – fifteen men and 5 women.

HOME is residential, not institutional, and features 20 self-contained, one-bedroom apartments (just 150m from the CBD).

We provide pastoral, not clinical care.

Caretaker’s Role:

We are looking for special people, be they a retired couple, or even a family, who would welcome the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our residents. The chief objective of this role is to be a loving, caring presence within the HOME complex, complementing the care afforded by our staff (a Manager, an Assistant Manager, four Support Workers, volunteers, and another live-in caretaker).

Caretaker Accommodation:

Three bedroom house (inc 2 bathrooms, laundry, lounge and dining areas, enclosed garage) – note: kitchen and en suite recently renovated.

Rent is covered by HOME.

In a nutshell, HOME seeks to gently and persistently love people back into life.
