Getting to know you:
After you have made an enquiry (either by phone or internet) we will meet with you and your family member or advocate. Together, we will go through a thorough process to ensure your needs can be catered for in the home you are enquiring about. We will also take you on a tour of the home so you can see the accommodation first-hand as part of the process of deciding whether its right for you.
Determining whether this vacancy is the right fit for you:
Moving into a new home is a considerable life event, and as part of our service, we aim to ensure that you are successfully paired with a home that can accommodate your lifestyle, daily requirements and goals. This thorough process considers a wide range of factors including your age, gender, what your needs are for your sensory impairment, the location of your day program or employment and your desired location in relation to where your family is currently living. We also take into consideration the needs of other clients living in the home at the time of the vacancy.
If the home is not compatible with your needs:
After going through this process, sometimes a move to the current vacancy may not be suitable or successful. In this case we can place you on our waitlist for home that is more suitable for your specific needs. As future demand increases, Forsight has the capacity to open new homes based on that demand for a particular area.
We will stay in contact on a regular basis to see if your needs have changed and to give you an update on how your enquiry is going. We are mindful that sometimes the need for accommodation is acute so we will work hard to get the outcome you need and ensure consistent communication with you or your loved ones throughout the process..
