AWWA Home and AWWA Day Activity Centre (DAC) serve adults aged 18 to 55, with mild to severe physical and multiple disabilities.
AWWA DAC is a community-based facility. We provide care and training to our clients so they can be meaningfully engaged during the day and continue being active community members. This also provides respite to caregivers.
AWWA Home is a residential service, typically for clients who have no caregivers or next-of-kin, or whose caregivers are unable to care for them. We aim to provide our residents a safe environment and quality long-term care, creating a home away from home for them.
With our multidisciplinary team of Allied Health and Care professionals, AWWA Home and AWWA DAC offer programmes designed to enhance our clients’ and residents’ independence. We provide holistic, person-centred care through a variety of activities that serve to promote the well-being of our clients. These activities include:
