The financial impact of physical and mental health issues can sometimes lead to the need for short-term housing.
Similarly, if you live in regional or remote areas and need to travel to Brisbane or the Gold Coast for medical treatment or counselling, it can often be a struggle to find affordable accommodation for you and your partners/dependents while you undergo treatment. Futhermore, when the treatment is completed, you may need some ‘time out’ before returning to the routine and pressures of daily life.
To assist in these circumstances, RSL Queensland own and manage two temporary accommodation facilities – Angus House in Toowong, Brisbane and Nui Dat House on the Gold Coast.
Close to hospitals and other amenities, these houses are communal accommodation spaces which, for $20 per night, offer the following facilities:
- Comfortable private rooms – comprising both single and double rooms, with built-in robes and individual security.
- Communal kitchen and dining areas – evening meals are prepared for residents, and you have access to breakfast and lunch supplies during the day. You may choose whether to join the group in the dining room or arrange your own meals each evening.
- Common recreational areas – this includes comfortable indoor and outdoor living areas with lounges, televisions, web-enabled computers and BBQ facilities.
