‘Home is where the heart is’

The saying ‘home is where the heart is’ is apt for Orana as we pride ourselves on offering housing that has heart. As an Orana resident you are given a place that you can proudly call home. It doesn’t matter what type of home you need we have something that’s right for you. We don’t simply put a roof over your head, we tailor a living plan that will suit your needs.

Orana creates opportunities for people with disability to live their life in a way that is similar to others in the community. Orana’s community living service provides a safe and supportive home environment for people with a range of needs.

Qualified staff are rostered according to the support needs of the people at each house. This support ranges from 24 hours per day 7 days per week with sleepover staff at night to limited day service support.

Our current community living locations are located in Clarence Park (Amaroo), Marleston (a community environment), Netley (Galway Apartments situated near the Netley Employment Service), Berri, Port Pirie and Loxton.

Clarence Park

This is shared home living in group environment.  A group of four houses which provide a variety of living options from supported living to more independent living with support when you need it.

Galway Apartments

A community living environment where you live independently with support at a level of your choosing. This is either shared living in a two bedroom apartment or you can elect to live independently in a one bedroom unit.

Both options also provide you with the ability to have individualised support services of your choosing.

Berri

A traditional home that provides support for six residents.

Port Pirie

A beautiful historical home created into a cosy and warm house and home.  Staffed 24/7 to meet the needs of the residents.

Loxton

A group of four houses providing support for fifteen residents.  Each house has group living arrangements that are based on providing supports that meet the resident’s needs.

All Orana residents are totally involved in the decisions in the running of the house from menu planning and cleaning to bedroom design, with a focus on learning independent living skills as appropriate.
