Arafmi offers a range of accommodation options and support for people with a psychosocial disability, situated across South East Queensland. Each of our properties boasts their own unique features, cater to individual support needs and are open to flexible bookings.
We understand that from time to time, you may require temporary supports that are different from your usual arrangements. This may include short-term accommodation in a group-based facility, such as a short-stay at one of our Arafmi Houses, or the need for additional in-home support on a short or long-term basis.
There may also be times where carers need to step away from their caring role for a short period of time, whether they need a break for their own wellbeing or they’re faced with an emergency.
Our Arafmi Houses offer the opportunity for a rejuvenating break, in a friendly, relaxing environment. Our friendly staff are on hand throughout your stay to ensure your individual needs are met.
We provide tasty meals and snacks, fun activities and give you plenty of time to relax, allowing you to focus on the important things in life like your own health and wellness. Our aim is to provide you with a safe and enjoyable environment for you to enjoy so it feels like a home away from home!
Supported Independent Living (SIL)
Some people living with a mental illness may need help or supervision of daily tasks to develop the skills to live as independently as possible. These supports can be provided to the person in their home, regardless of the property ownership – whether they’re renting or not, or if it’s shared or an individual arrangement.
Sometimes people living with a mental illness may also benefit from sharing a home with others who also need support. This can have its benefits, because by doing so, they may also share their support hours.
Choosing the right home for you is important to us. We understand that everyone is unique, so we’re dedicated to working with you to select the best living arrangements and support staff you need. We also appreciate that even though you may share a home, you also want to enjoy time to yourself.
We understand carers may need to step away from their caring role for a short period of time, whether they need a break for their own wellbeing or they’re faced with an emergency.
The form of emergency respite that Arafmi offers varies from a few hours, overnight, in-home or centre-based respite, depending on the funding available and your specific needs. To discuss our emergency respite options, please contact our team at Arafmi.
