Residential Services

WIDA provides care and support to individuals who live in their own homes across Waterford and South Kilkenny. The accessible properties are owned by Dove Housing Association and all residents have private tenancy agreements.

The support required by the tenants varies greatly and everyone receives an individualised service based on their multi disciplinary assessed needs and their personal wishes. WIDA staff strives to enable service users to become active members of their local community and to seek new opportunities whilst maximising their independence.

Staff focus on maintaining relationships with the individuals family and friends and also encourage people to make new friendships in their community. Service users are supported to seek out activities of their own choosing and to get involved in their local area through sport, leisure and social facilities. Using a combination of education and support people are enabled to make their own choices and they are encouraged to seek the support of an independent advocate. All services are HIQA registered.
