Living with disability and disability accommodation

Nextcares is not stopping here. 

We are also building ILO accommodations for people with disabilities. Independent living options or ILO houses are a necessary part of building independence for many young people. We consider the connection to the community and commute as well as the proximity to employment and learning facilities. We think that our clients will fall in love with the A-grade facilities and high-end finishes. This is the plan, and our plans are big. So please be patient, big things are coming! Stay tuned by following our Social Media.

 We are taking expressions of interest now!
