Support for People with Disabilities
In-home disability support enables participants to take a break from their normal routine. Whether It’s a short holiday, a weekend away or simply doing something nice on a Saturday afternoon, in-home disability support can provide the support needed, for this important respite to happen.
The benefits of in-home disability support include enabling people living with a disability to experience new and different environments and experiences as well as giving them the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.
