North Tipperary Disability Support Service provides a Personal Assistant service for persons with disabilities across North Tipperary.
After being referred to NTDSS, every prospective new Service User meets with our service supervisor to explain exactly what their needs are, and exactly what kind of assistance would be most relevant to them. If NTDSS is then able to find a Personal Assistant who would be a good fit, our team will then work with the new Service User and their Personal Assistant to draw up a detailed service plan.
At all stages, it is vital that any service is led by the Service User. It is the role of NTDSS to understand the needs of its Service Users and to help them achieve a better quality of life and a greater degree of independence.
