About Thornfields

We believe in creating an atmosphere where everyone can live a healthy lifestyle and achieve their goals, whether they are big or small. All of our homes are situated close together to give residents the sense of living in a community. Residents can participate in regular group activities and socials to connect with others in the same home. It will help establish new friendships and a sense of belonging.

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is also sometimes referred to as a group home or shared accommodation. SIL is an NDIS support that helps participants with everyday tasks such as personal care, cooking and cleaning in a shared living environment. The funding for these items can vary depending on the level of support required.
