WIDA day services provide individualised community based services to people in Waterford who have an intellectual disability. All services are focused on providing an individual service in line with HSE New Directions policy. The day services currently support people between the ages of 18-65 years. All staff are committed to support service users in being active participants in their community and for them all to have socially valued roles. By streamlining the services which we provide in each centre, people are supported to achieve their individual goals.
There are currently six day services providing support to more than 40 individuals. These are:
Killure Training Service: A low support service where people are focused on increasing their independence and seeking employment. Independence can be in all areas of life and they may be working on literacy, hygiene, cooking or public transport. Killure Training Service is focused on personal growth and self advocacy.
The Hub: XXX
Spring Garden: A small service for people who require very individualised programmes with high interest activities.
Cherry Blossom: XXX
All of our day service attendees have access to a Nurse, Occupational Therapist, Assistant Psychologist and Social Worker. People are supported to develop their skills through employment, activation and education. The support of an independent advocate is available through the Citizens Advice Centre.
