Allowing people more opportunities to have social connections help to promote better mental and physical health for a person. Accessing programs to the community and support with daily living in a person’s home are all opportunities for people to ‘live life’, be part of their community, to feel valued and to be respected as an individual.
Building your mind and body are protective factors in assisting in lowering the effects of depression, as well as providing rehabilitation for people who may have had a brain injury or stroke.
OUR MISSION AT GET ACTIVE
To create and promote a home-like environment for the people we support. With integrity, respect, creativity and partnerships built on trust and collaboration, with a culture based on inclusion, where people can feel part of their community.
We have a passion and drive to build and create an environment where people can ‘live their life’. We have seen over many years the shortfalls in organisations that claim to ‘promote’ people’s rights and believe that we will establish a service where people we support not only have a comfortable environment, they also have a supportive culture that fosters growth, dreams and personal fulfilment through an inclusive, personalised and inspirational setting.
