People living with disability on the Central Coast and their families have celebrated the official launch of the new state-of-the-art Casa Capace residences in Gorokan today.

Designed by Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) provider Casa Capace, the development will enable leading provider of disability services on the Central Coast, Coastlink, to provide Supported Independent Living (SIL) for six individuals in two High Physical Support, three-bedroom villas.

Coastlink Chair, John Mouland, says this development sets the standard in specialist disability accommodation anywhere in Australia and its official opening is an exciting milestone for the Central Coast.

“These landmark residences revolutionise how we think about permanent disability accommodation and set the benchmark for specialist disability accommodation anywhere in Australia,” says Mr Mouland.

“As the latest addition to the growing disability accommodation options for Coastlink clients, these residences really set the bar for attractive, contemporary living for people of all abilities and signify a groundbreaking development for the Central Coast.”

Casa Capace COO, Michael Fuller, says “we are excited to be partnering with Coastlink in bringing our Casa Capace Specialist Disability Accommodation to the Central Coast, creating beautiful homes and living experiences for Australians with disabilities.”

Coastlink Acting CEO, Sharon Mansfield, has been involved with the landmark project since its inception and is particularly proud to deliver homes of this calibre for local residents.

“We’re proud to partner with Casa Capace, as leaders in the field of specialist disability accommodation, to deliver these incredible homes to local residents with a wide range of support needs,” says Ms Mansfield.

“Each villa is equipped with advanced assistive technology systems to ensure all residents can live as independently as possible, within a beautiful and welcoming environment that they can be proud to call home.”

Kerry Laing, mother of resident Michael Laing, says as a parent, knowing her son is living in a residence such as Casa Capace gives her peace of mind now and into the future.

“Knowing Mike is living here [in the Casa Capace residences in Gorokan] gives me peace of mind that if anything were to happen to me, he would be well looked after and cared for, and would not become the sole responsibility for my daughter,” says Mrs Laing.

“Most of us get to choose where we want to live and now I feel like Mike truly has another home that we would have chosen for him, rather than living somewhere just because that is what is available to him.

“I particularly like the more intimate setting of only three residents per villa, so that carers can really get to know Mike and develop a great relationship with him.

“It’s such a lovely little home, with everything brand new and sparkling, anyone would be happy to live here!”

The launch event was attended by Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch MP, Casa Capace and Coastlink representatives, participants, and their families.
