What is Jerendine and what do we do?
Jerendine is a family support program that serves carers, family and friends of people with mental illness.
Jerendine provides opportunities for members of the family to have a break through planned short term stays:
•    In the family home.
•    In Jerendine's community house, or
•    Via outings and activities in the community.

What is Jerendine House like?
The house has four single bedrooms with a support worker in the house at all times.
Evening meals are prepared for everyone staying in the house. Food is available for people to make their own breakfast and lunch. Regular activities for Jerendine guests are held at the house in addition to staff accompanying people on day trips to the beach, bushwalking etc. or shorter trips to the movies or shopping centres.

Who is eligible to use this Program?
Families eligible to use the program will live in the  area SOUTH of the Brisbane River and the Redland Shire. The person with the psychiatric disability must be between 18 and 65 years old.

How much does it cost?
If you are staying at Jerendine House there is a cost of $20 per day toward expenses.
If you are using Jerendine for accessing community outings/activities, you will only have to pay $7 toward food and/or the cost of the activity. Donations are appreciated and are tax deductible.
