Classes for People with Disabilities

Rosanna Fire Station Community House values diversity and encourages inclusiveness within our community. We provide activities for people with different types of disabilities and are wheelchair accessible. We also reflect an Active Service Model approach.
People with extra needs like eating/ personal care are to be accompanied with a carer.

ACTIVE SERVICE MODEL (ASM): Active Service Model approach is as a ‘health promoting philosophy of care’. This philosophy shifts thinking from ‘doing for’ participants to ‘doing with’ participants. Increase self help, strengthen confidence, independence of participants in and after the classes.

ASM principles:

  • promoting a ‘wellness’ or ‘active ageing’ approach that emphasises optimal physical and mental health
  • capacity building, restorative care and opportunities to improve social participation to maintain or promote a person’s capacity to live as independently as possible
  • a holistic person-centred approach to care, promoting wellness and active participation in goal setting and decision making collaborative relationships between providers, for the benefit of people using services.
