Rights and Responsibilities

At Blossom Community Care Services, we understand how important it is for everyone to know their rights. People often take their rights for granted and are generally left unaware. However, we make sure we educate everyone, including people with disabilities, regarding their rights.

We encourage everyone to know what their rights are and want them to exercise their rights regularly! We think of it as our responsibility to let people know where they can take a stand for themselves.
