Transitional Accommodation

Preparing for life at home after a spinal cord injury

Transitional Accommodation

Spinal Cord Injuries Australia recognises that transitioning to a home environment from a clinical rehabilitation setting is one of the biggest steps a person will make post injury. Our Transitional Accommodation, called CHOICES, in both Sydney and Perth, provides a real life modified home environment, giving the person with an injury and their family, the opportunity to become familiar with activities of daily living, identifying independence capabilities and potential home modification options. Our peer support team, all with a lived experience, are available to support you during this time.

SCIA also understands that goal planning does not stop when you leave rehabilitation, and not everyone will have the opportunity to use our Transitional Accommodation during rehabilitation. The accommodation is also available for people who have identified goals in a community setting e.g., improving independence or moving out alone. All our accommodation is fitted with quality modifications, close to transport and in a relaxing setting that allows you to reconnect with family and friends as well as achieve your personal goals and build confidence for the future. SCIA’s Transitional Accommodation is available to all clients with a spinal cord injury who wish to achieve personal goals, supported by our experienced peer support team. Limited respite packages are also available subject to availability.
