Services. Agape Care offers 24 hour residential support to adults with an intellectual disability.
We currently have three residential homes in the West Auckland area. Each service user has their own bedroom and takes part in the running of the home by engaging in daily domestic activities. Regular resident meetings are held to discuss issues and activites and make decisions. These meetings are also an opportunity for each service user to provide feedback on their level of satisfaction with the day to day running of the house. Every service user has a lifestye plan that is developed in conjunction with their family/whanau/advocate, and this plan is the basis for their social activities and skill development.
Each service user also has an annual needs assessment and the level of support they receive, including personal cares, financial management, meal preparation and medical care is tailored around their individual level of need. Examples of activities available through the vocational programme are: Hohepa creating opportunities. Hohepa’s day service called “Helios” provides vocational and community participation services for people who live residentially at Hohepa and for independent clients who might live with their family, in their own home, or at a residential service provider other than Hohepa. Helios also provides transition services for ORRS (Ongoing and Reviewable Resourcing Scheme) funded students in their last year of school.
