‘Bendiga’ comes from Spanish, meaning ‘bless’.
Bendiga House offers long-term accommodation with person-centered adaptive care to neurodiverse adults (excluding people on the Autism spectrum).
It is a home away from home where residents can work on reaching their potential in spite of the challenges they face, with the support of professional staff.
Starting out as one house accommodating 10 residents, Bendiga House has grown exponentially and now consists of three adjoining properties to eventually accommodate 25 residents. Each house has its own character and the goal is to create a safe, non-restrictive, home-like environment.
Residents follow a daily routine which includes structured activities on a daily basis. The daily routine is balanced, to allow residents to have enough private time to rewind and to socialise.
Depending on the needs of the resident, a personalised individual daily program is followed; some might need to take part in more structured activities, others less. This daily program is reviewed regularly, to meet the needs of every individual.Read More
