The Lifestyle Support Service (LSS) program assists adults under the age of 65 living with disabilities, and who primarily use Auslan to communicate. Our goal is to see our participants living in the general community as independently as possible.
LSS services are not limited to people who are Deaf or hard of hearing and are delivered by staff who are proficient in Auslan. By ensuring our staff can communicate with our participants, we aim to reduce the requirement for an Auslan Interpreter in situations where they may not be needed and reduce the strain on their interpreting packages.
Enoggera House is a shared household where combinations of support services are provided to residents who require a higher level of support.
The Lifestyle Support Service provides assistance to participants in a shared living arrangement at our Enoggera House.
This support includes assisting with or supervising tasks of daily life to develop the skills of our residents. Enoggera House is a supportive environment and residents are offered hands on support while learning new skills.
Residents are encouraged to make connections and socialise in communal areas but can also enjoy the privacy of their own bedroom.
