Living independently

About us

At Just Better Care Gold Coast (JBCGC) we believe everyone should have access to a living environment of their choosing. Our independent living communities offer people living with a disability the chance to live a dignified life with the support needed to reach their own personal goals.
 
JBCGC has a holistic approach to the support we offer, including:
  • Building independence, capacity and dignity
  • Developing involvement and participation in the community
  • Finding opportunities for learning and development; and
  • Encouraging good communication with families, friends and circles of support
 

How can I access independent living for myself or a loved one?

Please register your interest in future vacancies by calling us on 07 5577 3600 or email mailgc@ustbettercare.com to find out more.
 
 

How do I get started to access independent living?

To get started, you should contact the Queensland Government's Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, who will determine your eligibility for funding. Click for information on how to apply for support.
