Disability Support Services
Villa Maria's Disability Services provides a wide range of support to individuals and families across the "whole of life" continuum. Our disability support services aim to meet a diverse user group through all life stages.
At Villa Maria we strive to enable, support and encourage people to participate fully and equally within the community, creating various pathways and opportunities of their choice. Our aim is to support people to reach their goals and aspirations: our disability support services give us the opportunity to do this.
Villa Maria's disability support services are flexible and creative and recognise the uniqueness and diversity of all individuals. We operate across three Melbourne metropolitan regions - Eastern, Southern and North and West - and provide support to more than 500 individuals and their families.
The disability support services range from shared supported accommodation, facility-based and flexible respite, adult day options, individualised supports, case management and support for ageing carers.
Disability Services is governed by the Disability Act 2006. Please refer to our documents section for a list of down-loadable resources for your information.
Each year Disability Services conducts a survey assessing the quality of services provided by Villa Maria. If you use any of the Disability Services offered by Villa Maria please click on the link below and anonymously leave your feedback.
