The Assistance with Care & Housing Program supports people who are aged over 60, on a low income and are homeless or living in insecure accommodation such as rental, caravan, hotel or boarding house settings and at risk of homelessness, for reasons such as:
- rental accommodation is unsuitable, temporary or too expensive
- staying at home has become too difficult
- they face a crisis, eviction or their lease has not been renewed
- changes to their health and independence.
The Coordinator works to find better, affordable, secure, on-going accommodation and to access aged care support services. Resthaven’s Assistance with Care & Housing Program supports people living in eastern metropolitan Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills, Murraylands, Limestone Coast, the Fleurieu & the Riverland areas.
Resthaven accepts referrals from other organisations, health care providers, advocates and family members. We encourage people to refer themselves if they require assistance.
