Building more than a home
For a young person with high care needs, having the right place to live can make all the difference. Sadly over 7,000 young Aussies currently live in aged care because there is nowhere else equipped to provide the support they need.
Youngcare is committed to driving change and developing practical alternatives to aged care. Through our building program we are creating appropriate homes – vibrant, modern living spaces where young people can live young and independent lives, with appropriate and dignified care.

In partnership with Griffith University, we are also pioneering new models of care and accommodation that set the standards for others to follow. From one and two-bedroom apartments to share houses, Youngcare’s architect-designed homes incorporate best practice and can be easily replicated.
We are proving that it is possible to offer young people with high care needs a choice of appropriate accommodation in a cost-effective manner.
Youngcare’s one-bedroom apartments at Coomera on the Gold Coast, and Sinnamon Park, Brisbane provide a superior quality of life and incorporate facilities including gym, spa and therapy equipment. Residents receive expert care delivered by Wesley Mission Queensland.Did you know?The three new developments due for completion in the next two years will almost treble our capacity and showcase new models of accommodation.You can make the difference
The Auburn Apartments in Sydney, which are due to begin construction soon, will be based on the same one-bedroom model and will be run in conjunction with St Vincent’s and Mater Health Services.
The apartments at Albany Creek, Brisbane, which are also scheduled for construction in 2016 for completion in 2017, will showcase a new two-bedroom design, providing each resident with the added flexibility of an additional guest room or study.
Meanwhile the Wooloowin Share House provides the classic young life experience of share house living for the four housemates, as well as appropriate care and support.
