With this service, adults of all ages board with a family, a friend or others. We make the boarding arrangements and provide ongoing support including help working out any issues.
If needed, we can help contract boarders access other services, such as work support, day programmes, planning for their older years and medical services.
This service is provided by IDEA Services family/whanau services.
