Intellectual disability support services
People are supported to meet their needs, aspirations and community involvement.
Choice is encouraged and the people we support are invited to create a lifestyle plan.
We also provide respite care and support for carers.
What does it mean to have an 'ordinary life'?
The To Have An ‘Ordinary’ Life report from National Advisory Committee on Health and Disability September 2003 describes the desire for an 'ordinary life' as:
"...the aspirations of adults with an intellectual disability to access the everyday things that others take for granted. Despite significant changes in society, the lives of adults with an intellectual disability are still very different from other New Zealanders."
