ADULT SERVICES FOR PEOPLE WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES
Mercy Centre supports four additional group homes in Orange.
The residents are people with intellectual disabilities some of whom may have some challenging behaviour.
The emphasis is on skill development, community participation, and healthy relationships.
ADULT SERVICES FOR PEOPLE WITH HIGH PHYSICAL SUPPORT NEEDS
A large open plan house on a five acre block of land is a Mercy Centre accommodation setting in Orange for adults with intellectual disability and high physical support needs. The focus of this house is to live a healthy lifestyle with as much community access as possible. Chooks, rabbit runs, vegetable gardens and home made muffins are the order the day in this house.
Mercy Centre is a registered day programme provider through DADHC Day Programme funding and ATLAS in Orange.
These programmes operate out of two venues: one oriented to people with high physical needs; and the other to people who are more active.
The programmes are health, sport, recreational and vocational.
Orange Branch also supports Mercy Centre Community Participation programmes in Blayney, Dubbo, Forbes, Cowra, Young, Bathurst, Lithgow and Oberon. Not all of these programmes are fully active at this time.
