Health & Wellbeing Project – Sports Equipment
Originally established in 1990 Abbeyfield Marion provided supported independent living for 10 elderly persons who could no longer afford to rent in South Australia. The elderly residents moved out in 2009 and a disability house was established to accommodate young adults with mild intellectual disabilities.
Abbeyfield Marion is part of Abbeyfield Australia who are the peak national body representing and supporting 22 local Abbeyfield societies. An Abbeyfield House is a group house in which residents live independently within a shared supportive environment. An Abbeyfield House is a large house but it is not an institution or a facility. It is just an ordinary house in an ordinary street. The residents ‘come and go’ as they please, socialise with other residents as much as desired.
