Parents and Carers – Even the strongest arms need support sometimes.
Looking after someone with a disability adds an extra dimension to the role of a parent, spouse, child or sibling. Some carers help with daily needs and activities such as feeding, dressing, bathing, administering medication and more. Others assist those who are fairly independent but may need help with day-to-day tasks such as household chores, shopping, cleaning, transport and banking. Some carers are children themselves, helping to care for their siblings with a disability.
You have a lot to deal with. Meeting everyone’s needs. Finding what supports and services are best for your child and family. Building skills. Laying foundations. Nurturing their learning and growth. We offer a range of services to support you. Respite for your family, shared care options, support coordination, Positive Behaviour Supports and specialist supports in the areas of Early Childhood Intervention, Autism and Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). We are here to support you with essential services at home; activities out in the community; and surprisingly imaginative solutions to problems no-one else understands.
The services we provide, listed below, can assist carers and help improve their quality of life, both for them and the person they are caring for.
