To Serve You
Do you want to get out in the community more often, but are at a loss how to navigate the logistics of it? Do you want to move from where you are currently living, or need help with daily activities? Do you long for a larger circle of friends, or for assistance in dealing with life?
If you answered 'Yes', have a high physical disability, and are willing to open your world to let a network of support into your life, then REALM may be for you.
We believe that people with high physical disabilities and their families:
We support people with high physical disability (whom we refer to as the 'Centre') to develop, and maintain their own community based networks of support. We assist in choosing both a network facilitator and members. We offer training for network facilitators regarding developing, maintaining and growing networks. We also provide ongoing opportunities for facilitator and network mentoring.
The support a network provides to a Centre and their families is as unique as each Centre is unique. That said, the general framework of a network is that they listen to the Centre to determine who they are and how they want to grow. They identify needs and how the network can assist in finding necessary resources to address those needs.
Interdependence characterizes all networks in that networks are based on relationship and journeying together - not rescuing, not overtaking - but walking alongside in friendship and in love. INTERESTED? Contact us here
