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

A presentation by Lisa Martin, 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

A copy of the presentation will be given to each attendee and a resource table of information will also be available. Tea, coffee and biscuits available 15 minutes prior to each seminar.

Disability Connect now charges $50 including GST for each professional (working in the disability sector) attending our seminars. This can be paid by cash, cheque (made out to our full organisation name Parent and Family Resource Centre Inc.) or direct debit.

We do not accept credit card or Eftpos payments. We are happy to send an invoice at time of booking of a professional and payment is required prior to attendance. Refunds will only be given if you cancel and this must be made at least 24 hours prior to the seminar. Please phone to cancel.

There is no charge for parents or family members attending.
RSVP is essential: 09 636 0351 or admin@disabilityconnect.org.nz.
