What Is The DISABILITY SERVICE?
Through working in partnership with an individual and their family/whānau, the disability service supports people to lead great lives, whatever it takes. Support can be up to twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week support, depending on the needs and wants of the person/individual and their family/whānau. People are well cared for and supported by experienced staff who they can choose.
Support can take place in the Community, your home or a home run by MASH. We will work with you, your whānau and Kaitūhono (Connector) to support you to live the life you choose.
We support people in the Manawatū, Horowhenua, Hawkes Bay, Kāpiti, Wellington and Lower Hutt areas. In the MidCentral DHB region disability support comes under Mana Whaikaha.
AS A SERVICE WE BELIEVE IN:
- valuing people as the unique individuals they are – our support is based on the principles of Person Centred Planning, Enabling Good Lives and partnership;
- ensuring people feel happy and good about themselves;
- acknowledging that each person is an individual with their own needs and strengths;
- strong links with whānau; and
- strong links with specialist mainstream services.
By working in partnership with you and your whānau, we can develop the support you want – you tell us how we can support you to achieve the outcomes that are important for you.
