We have service users who are well into their older years and are very much involved in the community! We offer various opportunities to participate in activities and most recently we have a whole bunch of folk joining the Community Choir!!
We are great researchers of information to support us in making the best opportunities for people with disabilities to grow old with a combination of disgrace and dignity!!
While there is still lots of research around the needs of this cohort that needs to be done; we have found that keeping active, enjoying a full social life and friendships across the generations, keeps away the sadness of isolation.
Come and have a chat with us. We really do think differently about this kind of work!!
