Ministry of Health Residential Services
A residential contract with the Ministry of Health means that a person with an intellectual disability has access to support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The person's choice of living arrangement is worked out with them and their family/whanau. It would be usual they would flat with others (no more than three others). SILC is committed to ensuring people feel that it is their home and that they have lifestyles that reflect who they are and what they aspire to achieve.
Who can access our services?
People who have an intellectual disability who have been referred to us by Support Net. All referrals to Residential Services come via Support Net who carry out a Needs Assessment to determine the level of support you require.
Often you will have come and met us to see if we “fit” together philosophically to provide your service even before the referral is made to us. If you have not met with us we will be sure to meet you before we accept your referral to ensure we do “fit” well together.
This referral is then discussed with Support Net to confirm if we are able provide the service to you.
Once a referral is accepted, we will meet with you to discuss when your service will begin and ask you to assist us to write your Service Plan, identifying the support you require and the aspirations you have for the upcoming few months.
For more detailed information about the residential contract please review the Residential Services brochure.

"An individual strand of silk is very fragile, and easily overlooked. However, when combined with other strands of silk, it gains strength and the material is able to be manufactured into a garment that can have great value and beauty. The silk thread mirrors what can be achieved in the lives of the people we support." ©
