• Community Houses

    The majority of St. Michael's House residential services are provided in community houses. These houses are located in residential areas, close to amenities so that service users can become part of the local community. Each house is run independently, reflecting the likes and needs of its residents. A Service Plan details the overall goals for the year and reflects residents' Individual Plan.

    Architectually, residential houses resemble family homes, but are designed to be fully wheelchair accessible, including special features such as ceiling hoists and parker baths. Service users share the decisions about how the house is decorated and how the shared spaces are used, with each service user personalising their own bedroom.

    Houses are generally home to a maximum of six residents, who are grouped to where possible reflect friendships and shared interests. While residents often socialise together, each person follows their own daily routine of going to work, their day service and social activities. Families and friends are a very important part of the social fabric of the house and continue to be fully involved.
