Youngcare are coming to North Queensland! The build is the first step to making a real and viable impact in the Townsville region.

The announcement comes at a vital time for the disability housing sector in Queensland, where the need for age-appropriate housing and care is critically high.

There are currently 2,500 young Queenslanders with high care needs living in inappropriate housing, 318 of those eligible for Specialised Disability Accommodation reside in Townsville.

The development forms part of Townsville’s latest residential development, Brookstone on the Park; an integrated housing community that will include 1 x 2 bedroom and 1 x 3 bedroom fully accessible townhouse for young people with high care needs. Each dwelling will be equipped with the latest technology and equipment, ensuring the residents can live with independence and dignified care.

Stage one will comprise of two townhouses (1 x 2 bedroom and 1 x 3 bedroom), with a separate care pod for 24 hour onsite and overnight care support for young people with high physical care needs. The build will have easy access to all facilities including the Ring Road, public transport and The Townsville Hospital with development proposed to commence late 2019.

We are proud to be working with well-known local builder, Martin Locke, to build accessible housing for young people with high care needs in Townsville.
