All these services are private not-for-profit and partially paid for by the families of the clients, and the balance is subsidized by the Miriam Foundation.
Adult leisure activities are offered on evenings and weekends for adults with ND. Leisure groups provide the opportunity to socialize in a peer group, develop friendships, practice appropriate social behaviours in the community, learn new skills and, above all else, have fun!
