Choices support and accommodation in Hobart
Move safely back to your home and community
Choices operates in the south of Tasmania in partnership with the Royal Hobart Hospital. The program receives referrals for people while they are in inpatient facilities such as the Department of Psychiatry, or other mental health residential or respite accommodation. The program then supports people in the community following discharge, with the aim to assist their reintegration and reduce their need for readmission.
Often the circumstances leading to their admission include homelessness, in which cases we provide accommodation and intensive psychosocial support, allowing timely exit from inpatient services. Choices provides support up to12 weeks to assist people to transition back into the community – offering a higher level of coordination when people need it most. Choices is an evidence-informed person-centred program where the person receiving support will identify what they would like to work on, such as securing stable long-term housing.
Choices operates two transitional accommodation sites in Hobart, Karingal for men and Rose Cottage for women.
Both sites support people who are currently homeless and unable to be discharged from the Royal Hobart Hospital because of their homelessness they are intended to provide a homely environment where people are encouraged to focus on their personal recovery.
- Karingal has 5 bedrooms each with its own bathroom and shared living areas.
- Rose Cottage has 4 bedrooms with shared bathroom and living areas.
Choices engages with people during the critical time after a hospital admission to assist people to overcome psychosocial barriers and achieve a greater quality of life. Choices is supported by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Tasmanian Government.
