Open Minds and Summer Housing – providing a supported oasis for people with a disability, who want what all of us want, freedom to be independent
Open Minds are proud to be offering its first of many concierge models of housing for people with a disability, situated in a state-of-the-art building in Bowen Hills.
The need for Supported Independent Living (SIL) and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is increasing, and Open Minds understands the need for automation and accessible homes, which is why we were excited to partner with Summer Housing as the SIL concierge provider for their new Bowen Hills location.
Located in Bowen Hills, this building of 60 apartments, has 10 SDA Apartments peppered across floors, with outstanding views. This inner-city oasis is close to vibrant King Street, the Gasworks and of course Brisbane CBD. The residents have access to state-of-the-art facilities including a rooftop sky garden with an infinity edge pool and panoramic views of the Brisbane City Skyline, fire pit, three BBQs, and an all-purpose gym and Pilates studio – why would you want to leave?
"I think the Concierge Model will be a really strong growth area in this sector. We are seeing more and more clients want greater independence over their lives, but perhaps there are times of the day where they just need someone to come into their home and support them with a few things like showering, even if it’s just for peace of mind."
"Families can feel real comfort over knowing there is someone in the building that can help out” said Chris, Open Minds General Manager for Improvement and Growth.
