My son is autistic and is cared for by Nua Healthcare in Kildare. This is an incredible organisation with wonderful and amazing people who provide a vital service for those who cannot care for themselves. I personally want to say 'thank you' and I would urge others to find out more about them, and support them.
Staff in my house are caring and always helping me make my own decisions about my life. They encourage me when I go swimming, walking and attend Day Services. They also help me when I visit home.
This home is my life, I go to Day Service, do woodwork and I have taken part in the Olympics, this home is a family to me, I love living here!
