disAbility Living Inc [formerly Community Living for the Disabled] was established in 1984 to provide long term accommodation and support for young adults. We have provided supported accommodation for people with disabilities in South Australia for more than 25 years. We believe in the inherent right of people with disabilities to have choice and control over their lives and support their right to be active citizens enabling them to participate fully in the community.
We work with our residents to assist them to strengthen their support and problem solving resources, so that they may have the ability to obtain more control over their relationships, resources, learning, information and decision making.
The Credit Culture that disAbility Living Inc has developed is based on Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs and extends into a model that is used to understand the needs and motivations not only of the residents but also our staff. This allows for our organisation to see each other as human beings with similar experiences, rights and feelings. It provides a valuable tool in understanding behavioural responses and solutions.
