At EaseCare, person centred support is our guiding belief. This means you are at the centre of our care and support plan. Your needs and preferences determine the support you will receive. You and your loved ones decide the disability services you will be supported with.
This person centred support approach means we are customising when and how you are being supported.
If you want to live independently, our disability support workers team are here to assist you in adjusting to independent living and building skills to live independently. If you need assistance and care in your home, our in-home care support workers in Melbourne are ready to assist you.
If you want to be more active in your community, our professionally trained disability support workers are happy to help you travel and attend the activities and places you want to access.
What Person Centred Support Means for You
There may be times when you feel like your thoughts and feelings are being disregarded because of your disabilities – such as when people make decisions for you without consulting with you first. This is not how we do things. At EaseCare, everything starts with you.
Our support services and resources are personalised to your personal goals, preferences, and existing support system (including your family and friends).
We are here to empower people with disabilities to live self-sufficient and fulfilling lives, despite any challenges they may face. Since you are the most familiar person with the challenges you face, we will listen to you and plan our support services according to your goals and needs.
Our professionally trained disability support workers are committed to assist you so you can live independently and participate in your communities. This tailored support can include:
- Attending skill-building programs
- Accessible transportation
- Personal care assistance
You Are the Decision Maker
Our support starts with respecting your right to make your own choices, take risks, and be involved in decisions about your care. We will provide you with as many options and information as you need, so you can make the best decisions for you and your support plan.
At EaseCare, we understand that each person with a disability is unique and has their own strengths, abilities, and aspirations. That is why we aim to work with you to identify your personal goals, and develop a care plan that takes into account your preferences, lifestyle, and cultural background.
Our support workers at EaseCare can support you with:
- Living independently
- Expressing your preferences and opinions comfortably
- Accessing activities and events that you wish to partake in
- Providing training and education to develop new skills
- Building social skills and relationships with your community, including hanging out and making new friends
- Supporting you in other ways so you can achieve your goals
At EaseCare, we are determined to help you to live fulfilling lives and achieve your full potential, while also promoting your autonomy and self-determination.
To do this, we need your input. Contact our friendly team today to chat about how we can work with you and your loved ones to help you live independently, and improve your quality of life.
