Services collaborate on innovative housing to bridge ageing-disability divide

Service providers collaborating on a unique development to enable people with disabilities and their ageing parent carers to stay living together as they age say they are documenting their experiences and will produce a blueprint to guide other providers.

The Pathways Project is being built by IRT, which will own and operate the community. Its development has been guided by a steering committee consisting of IRT, Greenacres Disability Services, Community Options Illawarra and Interchange Illawarra, with the University of Wollongong assisting with research and producing the project report that will contain the blueprint.
