Social & Community Access Direct Supports

Social & Community Access

Social and community integration are important aspects of our daily lives, and those with disabilities should be able to access the same opportunities as everyone else. Getting into the community and socialising can help clients to live more meaningful lives and reach their goals. Social and community access is accounted for in many clients’ NDIS Plans and gives funding to someone to help them engage in social or recreational activities.

This can include a mix of community and centre-based activities all aimed at strengthening your ability to participate independently. Some examples of community access would be assisting you to go to the library, an art class, a choir, a sports or fitness class. It might even involve someone helping you to go out and see your friends.

Domestic Assistance & Housekeeping Direct Supports

Domestic Assistance & Housekeeping

This is someone who comes in to help around the house. Perhaps you need someone to tidy or clean, help you with meal planning and preparation,  do your laundry or other domestic jobs in order to maintain your home environment and ensure you can live safely and well in your own home.

Personal Care & Hygiene Direct Supports

Personal Care & Hygiene

Personal Care involves helping a client with bathing, toileting or other hygiene needs, but it can also involve things like feeding, dressing, help with medications and moving around in your own home.

Medication Assistance Direct Supports

Medication Assistance

If you need someone to help dispense your medications to you, our Support Workers can follow your schedule and ensure that you are taking everything you need at the right times, and in the right way.

Meal Preparation & Planning Direct Supports

Meal Preparation & Planning

Preparation of meals can be a complex challenge for some individuals with disabilities, so our Support Workers can help make delicious and nutritious meals. Planning meals according to guidance from dieticians and other professionals is sometimes necessary, and our staff can also help with this. Alternatively, some clients may just need a bit of help with confidence building in the kitchen, and our Support Workers can help them learn new skills or learn to plan their meals in advance to be more independent.

Staying Fit & Active Direct Supports

Staying Fit & Active

Many clients need some assistance with fitness, particularly if this is something their doctor has suggested. We match Support Workers with skills and interests in this area to clients, and the day-to-day activities may include things like going for a gym or a swim, or even joining a disabled team or working with a Personal Trainer. Sport and fitness activities can be tailored to suit individual needs and abilities.

Building Life Skills Directly  Supports

Building Life Skills

There are lots of ways our Support Workers can help you increase your capacity to manage daily activities and be more independent. Using encouragement and tailored teaching methods, Support Workers can help you to build life skills wherever possible.

Companionship Direct Supports

Companionship

Support Workers genuinely love engaging with each and every one of their clients. We make sure that we can see their passion when they walk through our door, and we wouldn’t hire them otherwise! Whether your disability leaves you feeling lonely or isolated, or you just want a “professional friend” by your side when attending activities and events, our Support Workers look forward to spending time with you.
