Ā mātou rōpū (About our team)
Live Life Disability Support (LLDS) provide support to people who have disabilities to achieve their personal aspirations and choices. LLDS provides support to over 250 people in a variety of residential and respite settings across the Nelson/Tasman and Marlborough regions.
We support each person to manage their day to day lives in ways and at times that work for them. The people we support have a wide range of abilities and challenges. Some people need support with their personal care and taking care of household tasks; some need support to participate and go out-and-about and join in social and leisure activities; and some need communication and behavioural support.
We actively encourage people to pursue their dreams and try out new experiences, and can guarantee that no two days working at LLDS are ever the same.
N.B. Disability Support Services are part of Nelson Marlborough Health, we are not however a medical/clinical service. We are a community based disability support service focused on quality of life outcomes and the Enabling Good Lives Principles.
