My daughter Veronica has been a resident in a Nambucca Valley disability Service home since 2002. She shares her home with Rhonda and the two are the best of friends. The pair have staff supervision in the morning and late afternoon. Since 2002, our family have been overjoyed with Ronnie’s progress, both socially and scholastically. The friendly staff at NVdS, as well as her friends within the service have shown her an independence which she loves. Amongst other activities she does office work one or two mornings a week; she attends both lawn bowls and ten pin bowling; she also attends hydrotherapy; and she attends Poets and Performers – in fact she is presently in Sydney with that group attending a live performance of The Lion King. What I love, as a mother, is that my daughter has a life of her own which she treasures. Despite my fears in letting her go, she has developed her own identity proving that, even with autism, she is capable of so much more than we ever thought. For this, I thank NVdS. Finally, I love the family oriented atmosphere the service exudes. I can thoroughly recommend the professionalism of management and staff at NVdS.
Nambucca Valley Disability Services have raised the ceiling of expectation of Beliefs about people with a disability and support a person centred approach to planning. After a multitude of changes of Philosophies, Policies, Procedures, Discussion papers coupled with Government Rhetoric etc. This service does exactly what a good Disability Service should do:- Offer folk with disabilities a ‘Soft Place to Fall’. Have they got the perfect ‘Life Stage’ Support systems in place? Not as yet! However, for me that’s a good thing, because I can’t die until they have.
