Social Work

Social work supports people to adapt to life’s challenges and to enhance their wellbeing. Social workers consider your past and current experiences in empowering you in your physical, psychological and social circumstances and hopes for the future. At Adapt Lifestyle Support, we deliver social work services to adults living with neurocognitive disabilities, including Younger Onset Dementia.
