About Us - Overview

Long Term Supported Accommodationaboutus-overview

Gellibrand Support Services provides long term residential placement for adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. The purpose of residential support is to give clients a safe and homely environment in which their emotional well being is cared for and they are provided with a friendly environment in which to grow and develop.

Individual Support Packages

Gellibrand also offers Individual Support Packages to adults with disabilities who live independently or with their families. Programs and techniques are compiled to suit each individual and their skill level. This form of individual support can also be viewed as a form of respite for families with a member who has a disability, in that clients are often supported and educated outside the family home at facilities such as the Jenny Burbidge Centre. In these cases, family members are given the opportunity to catch up on daily tasks such as shopping or simply provided with down time.

Living SkillsSupport With Activities Of Daily Living

Gellibrand Support Services provides clients with an environment in which the development of daily living skills can be fostered. Clients are provided with opportunities to develop the skills necessary to live independently within the community. The development of skills range from cooking, banking and household duties to social skills.

Recreational Options

Gellibrand Support Services networks with external organisations to support clients with opportunities to access local generic services of their choice. It is essential to liaise with these organisations to ensure that their client approach is in line with disability philosophies and that services offered are both accessible and appropriate to people with disabilities.
