Our Model of Care: Social Model vs Medical Model
The social model of disability says that disability is caused by the way the society is organised whereas the medical model of disability says people are disabled by their impairments or differences.
The barriers you might face are not just physical. Attitudes found in society which are based on prejudice or stereotyping may also disable you from having equal opportunities to be part of society. At Sunflower Way we work with you to enable you and not to disable you further and to facilitate this we implement the Social Model of Care where all things become possible!
