DISABILITY CARE

Disability Care

At Care About You, we have extensive experience providing the highest quality person-centred care to adults and children with disabilities.

 

Our comprehensive individual needs assessment is carried out to understand the person’s abilities, difficulties, medical conditions, allergies, likes and dislikes and wishes and goals.

 

This information and risk assessments form the foundation of our person-centred support plan.

 

Risk assessments are not intended to limit the opportunities for the individual but to find a safe way for them to do the things they want to do. Risk assessments are carried out in collaboration with the individual and family members as required.

What approach do we take with children’s disability care?

Our Holistic Approach is designed to assist your child to reach their full potential in the following areas:

  1. Personal Care and Support – We can assist with all aspects of personal care, peg feeding and support for all disabilities.

  2. Physical Care and Support – We can incorporate programs designed for your child by the occupational therapist or physiotherapist to support the child's physical development, gross and fine motor skills.

  3. Intellectual Care and Support – We have extensive experience supporting children with intellectual disabilities. We encourage children to reach their potential, value their abilities, offer support and encouragement, and celebrate their successes.

  4. Language – Although some children are non-verbal, we do not believe they cannot communicate. Our staff are committed to enabling children to communicate and choose using devices such as PECS. We also assist with Language programs designed by speech and language therapists.

  5. Emotional Care and Support – At "Care About You", we know the emotional support levels some children with disabilities require. We endeavour to understand how frustration can result in challenging behaviour, and we work with behaviour plans and offer encouragement and support for children.

  6. Social Support: At Care About You, Social Integration and Social Inclusion are vital for all children's growth, development, and self-esteem. Through effective care planning and support, we can ensure that your Child has the opportunity to access their local community and take part in enjoyable social activities.
