Northern Suburbs Housing Community

Who we house

We have a range of housing that is targeted towards singles and couples predominantly aged 65 and over. We do not have any housing suitable for families.

This includes one and two bedroom independent units within a cluster of units at the property. This may be within a group as small as two units or as large as ten units. All units are at ground level and with services such as doctors, shops and public transport nearby. This ensures that tenants live amongst tenants of a similar age to themselves.

We also have a unique semi-independent development for singles in receipt of a pension who for one reason or another do not want to reside in independent accommodation.  This may be because their existing home is too large to maintain, they no longer want to cook for themselves, or may just want homely surroundings without having to go into supported age care.

The development has staff that provide services, which include providing three meals a day, seven days a week. The all-inclusive fortnightly fee includes all costs other than your personal items such as clothes, medications and any special items not included in the weekly house shopping.
