Our Role at Woodside Sanctuary
Children and adults with profound intellectual disabilities who are unable to remain with their families, due to their special needs, live at Woodside Sanctuary. Anyone that is referred to Woodside is assessed prior to being admitted as a resident. A gradual introductory trial period to the Sanctuary is normally recommended; with strict admission criteria needing to be met by the Department of Mental Health, so that the Sanctuary can be assured that the placement of a resident is appropriate for the family and for the person impacted by placement themselves. Due to the complexity involved in the placement of a person with profound disability at Woodside, approval is not always guaranteed.
Woodside Sanctuary helps these children and adults to reach their full potential and live fulfilling and personally rewarding lives by treating those with;
- Profound disabilities
- Mental Health needs
- Acquired brain injuries
- Physical/ medical disabilities
- Sensory impairments
