Infinity Longevity Solutions

Infinite Longevity Solutions is a social enterprise that advocates for The Social Model of Disability. The social model of disability is now the internationally recognized way to view and address ‘disability’. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) marks the official paradigm shift in attitudes towards people with disability and approaches to disability concerns. The social model of disability seeks to change society in order to accommodate people living with impairment; it does not seek to change persons with impairment to accommodate society. A social model of disability perspective does not deny the  reality of impairment nor its impact on the individual.  However, it does challenge the physical, attitudinal, communication and social environment to accommodate impairment as an expected incident of human diversity. Destiny House is Infinite Longevity Solutions' answer to accommodating and providing all the necessary supports, programs, information, guidelines, NDIS navigation and allied health professionals to people who desire a long term, sober and quality of life living with independent living skills that ensure a happy, manageable quality of life. Destiny House is an alcohol and drug free home environment. (prescribed medication is exempt).
