Welcome - I'm Peter
I live in Distinctive Options Noweyung, Supported Accommodation Residential Service with my wife – Mary Lou. We used to live in rental accommodation in Bairnsdale, but things were getting harder. My wife and I, and our families felt we needed more support, so when the opportunity to move into Peters Court came up, we jumped at it.
We have support from staff for our shopping, cooking, banking and budgeting and transportation. But most importantly, when I need a little bit more help someone is here to give it to me.
We have a great unit and also a common room. The Common Room is where all the residents can catch up with each other or with friends, play pool, do craft activities, have a meal together or watch the big footy game together. “Go Bulldogs!”
Peter said “I especially like living here, because it is right next to Noweyung and I can walk to my favourite Noweyung program - Now Projects where I make all sorts of wooden projects out of wooden pallets”.
“I especially like living here -it is right next to DO Noweyung "
