Services for People in Compulsory Care

IDEA Services provides rehabilitation services for people with high and complex needs.

IDEA Specialist Services provides compulsory care that focuses on rehabilitation. This is a Regional Intellectual Disability Supported Accommodation Service (RIDSAS), contracted by the Ministry of Health to provide rehabilitation services for people with high and complex needs.

We have locations for this service in Auckland and Wellington, supporting care recipient clients, who are ordered by the court under the Intellectual Disability (Compulsory Care and Rehabilitation) Act 2003.

The complexities of this group require the services to be flexible and responsive to their changing needs as they are supported through their rehabilitation.

Approaches to this support include:

  • The translation of therapeutic process into practice
  • Working in partnership to enhance rehabilitation opportunities
  • Contributing to discussion and activities that balance risk management and rehabilitation opportunities
