Lifestyle Assistance & Accommodation Service Inc was established in 1986 in response to the need for urgent accommodation of 4 young people with intellectual disability and complex behavioural support needs.
Historically, individuals with the degree of disability and behavioural support requirements had been relocated to Adelaide, however the parents of these young people lobbied for accommodation to be provided within their home region in country South Australia.
LAAS now provides accommodation at two sites in Loxton and two in Berri. LAAS also offers a Day Options programme providing meaningful, developmental day activities currently accessed by 25 people including accommodated clients and individuals living with their families across the Riverland.
LAAS was awarded the Certificate Level of the Australian Service Excellence Standards in May 2014.
The guiding principle of LAAS is that every person we support has the right to compassionate, professional service, which is state of the art, and is provided by respectful, caring, highly skilled staff.
The people we support are not special… the staff who support them are not special…
We are all ordinary…...but are leading very extraordinary lives.
