In September 2017, Holistic Horizons opened the doors of our Redcliffe Hub, and began providing short term respite. This gave our client’s carers a well-earned break, and allowed clients the opportunity to enjoy time away from home.
Each spacious bedroom has a comfortable double bed, and a fresh decor. There is a large communal games room where small groups can enjoy a pool table, air hockey and Netflix. Clients can enjoy various craft activities, including mosaics, sewing, computer, a TV lounge room, home cooked meals and a great outdoor area.
Some of our client’s achievements include obtaining boat licences – a goal which seemed impossible before they found our service. Other clients enjoy learning to cook, using public transport, becoming more independent, and developing relationships with others. Many of our autistic clients have improved the way they communicate with others, and have increased their confidence.
Focusing on the client’s abilities, rather than their disabilities, and valuing the input from parents and carers has resulted in the company going from strength to strength.
Working one on one, or in small groups of up to 3 clients, the company focuses on supporting clients to achieve their goals, and to find purpose in their lives. Whatever our client’s goals and aspirations may be, Holistic Horizons will do our utmost to make it possible.
