Rapid Interim Housing

A lack of accessible housing available at the right time and in the right area can leave people with a newly acquired disability stuck in hospital, rehabilitation settings or being admitted to aged care.’

Without innovative housing options, many young people will continue to be forced to live in aged care while they wait for appropriate housing.

The Summer Foundation is prototyping and displaying a rapid response housing unit that has been designed to support people with disability to avoid aged care.

The prototype looks just like any other small house, it has a living area, bedroom and ensuite, kitchenette and laundry. Assistive technology will increase the occupant’s independence, safety and security.

The prototype unit will be displayed in Melbourne and regional Victoria.
