Disability Connect are delighted to announce our first series of Living Options seminars for 2019. 

Information on four options for living arrangements for a person with a disability

This will be presented by Lisa Martin, Hosted by Disability Connect

This seminar explores the four main living arrangements for a person with a disability including information about supports available under each option, funding arrangements, who the providers are, benefits and challenges of each option, etc.

This seminar is ideal for families of a young adult with a disability who is approaching the age or ‘readiness’ to leave home.
Options discussed include:

  • Residential Care
  • Supported Living
  • Choice in Community Living
  • Family Governed models
