Preparing for life at home after a spinal cord injury

Short Term Accommodation in Perth

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 short term accommodation, in 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.

This 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. Click on the gallery to view photographs.
