Housing & Supported Independent Living
Seton Villa operates seven supported independent living houses in Marsfield, Eastwood and North Ryde. Each house is home to 4-5 residents who are supported to live as independently as possible by our caring and qualified staff. Our specialist disability accommodation houses offer a ‘home style environment’ designed to mirror the look and feel of an everyday family home. Residents are encouraged to assist in making meals and general household chores, along with participating in both individualized and communal leisure activities.
Seton Villa is committed to ensuring that our residents feel safe and secure in our homes and are able to lead happy and fulfilling lives as part of our Seton Villa community.
What makes Seton Villa Special
Seton Villa promotes the experience of autonomy both in small, everyday matters (e.g. what to eat, what to wear) and in large, life defining matters (e.g. with whom to live, what sort of work or functional/meaningful activities to engage in). Individual bedrooms are decorated to personal taste and communal spaces are warm and inviting places to be for residents, family and friends.
Seton Villa encourages each resident to have the experience of being part of a growing network of personal relationships that includes close friends beyond immediate family and support staff. Genuine social inclusion – the sharing of ordinary places that define community life – and citizenship, are valued for all members of the Seton Villa community, regardless of the level of ability.
Seton Villa is a work of the Daughters of Charity and maintains a culture of spirituality that understands the immense dignity and value of every individual as made in the image of God. This spirituality may be expressed through engagement with a local church if the resident so desires.
