The people we support are at the heart of our community, along with their families and friends. Other community members include Li-Ve Tasmania staff, management and directors; community supporters like the Acorn Branch and the Rosny Park Bowls Club; and people in the wider world, from our suppliers to the media and our government representatives.
Sure, our organisation strives for a commercially sustainable business model – we need to stay viable so we can keep supporting our participants. However, we don’t get side-tracked by dollars, politics, attitudes, red tape or looking good. Plain and simple – our community places people at the very centre.
Janet wants personal care each weekday – and that’s all.
Larry wants personal care each weekday, too but he also follows Li-Ve Tasmania on Facebook, talks to college kids at careers expos and enjoys Acorn Branch events, like the annual Christmas party. Larry’s family members love to host fundraisers for Li-Ve Tasmania and they’re always keen to sign up for our focus groups and info sessions.
Both Janet and Larry are valuable members of the Li-Ve Tasmania community – and so are their friends and families.
