Whom We Serve
Whom We Serve
We provide services for adults with intellectual disabilities who require a higher level of support, or have a greater degree of special needs that require continuous specialised help. Our centre-based service offers respite care for caregivers by relieving them of their usual caregiving duties and allowing them to focus on other responsibilities.
