about possible next steps
Every client is provided with an individually tailored support plan. This means support is assessed and planned to meet the needs and goals of the individual. Each plan focuses on teaching and supporting the individual to take on unfamiliar tasks, or to resume the household tasks they are currently not able to undertake themselves, utilising their strengths, capabilities and priorities.
Personal care services are delivered to assist people to maintain independence in their daily life, including:
- personal hygiene and grooming,
- assistance with dressing and undressing and stand-by showering and bathing
- meal preparation and medication prompting
Personal care services are carefully tailored to focus on filling the gaps to perform day to day functions.
Unassisted Shopping Services
Our team members are able to provide unaccompanied shopping for people who are finding it difficult to get to the shops.
