Day Options Services

Day Options gives people with disabilities the opportunity to participate in developmental programs, integrate into the community and form friendships while having FUN.

Day Options Program

The program runs each Monday to Friday from 9am – 3pm. Participants have a four week break over Christmas and return in mid January.
Referral to the Day Options program is through Disability SA and will soon be funded by the NDIS. The Day Options Program has a developmental focus. Each participant has an individual program with clear outcomes. The plan is developed after consultation with the family, participant, Disability SA, and our service.

Costs

The participant contributes $5 a day to access the Program. This fee incorporates all resource material and activities. From time to time the group attends local events which may incur an additional cost. For example they may visit the Field Days, the Sheep Dog Trials or out for lunch to celebrate someone’s birthday.

Transport

Participants living in Renmark or Berri are picked up and returned home by the Riverland Bus Service (Townsend’s Bus). Participants living in all other Riverland towns receive a door to door service using Respite’s fleet of vehicles which are wheelchair accessible. The cost is $6 per day.

Communication

A communication book is given to participants when they join the Program. The book is a communication tool between families and support workers.

Staff

Riverland Respite staff are trained and experienced in supporting people with disabilities. All staff possess a Disability Services Certificate 3, a Senior First Aid Certificate, have undergone a Police Check and undertake medication and other pertinent training on an annual basis.
