Lead an active life

If you need help with tasks such as getting to and from your job, attending university, or getting to and from other appointments and social activities, then our social supports are for you.

Our focus is on empowering the people we work with to take part in an active social life and strengthen connections to community.

We're here to help you participate in the community, whether you're working, studying, or just catching up with friends.

Finding the best support worker

Social support is all about building and maintaining good relationships. That should start with the relationship between you and your caregiver! Your personal preferences are important to us, and we take them into account, considering things like:

Personality traits

  • Personality traits
  • Cultural backgrounds
  • LGBTI awareness
  • Language barriers
  • Your preference for male or female support workers

An active life in the community starts at home

There are many household activities that are necessary to support an active social life. In addition to helping you with mobility, we can assist with tasks around the home to help you get ready.

For example:

  • General cleaning
  • Cooking and meal preparation
  • Clothes washing
  • Helping around the garden
  • Helping you to get dressed and ready for the day
  • Showering

Health and wellbeing

You've got people to see and places to go, and our care team can help see to it that you're fit to take on the day's challenges. We can assist with:

  • First aid
  • Nursing care
  • Organising appointments with allied health professionals
  • Administering medication
  • Travelling to medical appointments, or booking home visits

Whether you need help with social supports once a day, or once a week, we can help you with caring support workers perfectly suited to your NDIS plan.
