Comprehensive Support Services

Your Path to Empowerment

At Approach Care, we are your partners on the path to empowerment. As a registered NDIS provider, we offer a diverse array of services designed to support individuals with disabilities in achieving their fullest potential. Our approach is centered on your individuality, and we work alongside you to create a plan that meets your unique requirements and aspirations.

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a specialized form of assistance aimed at enabling individuals to maintain their residence while receiving the support they require. SIL services encompass a wide range of aid and supervision for daily activities, such as personal care and meal preparation. Our SIL program is meticulously designed to foster independence and skill development, allowing you to live as self-reliantly as possible.

This level of support is primarily intended for individuals with higher support needs, those who rely on continuous assistance within their home environment. SIL is best suited for individuals with disabilities who necessitate substantial support throughout each day, including overnight assistance, ensuring their safety and well-being around the clock.

Short Term Accommodation (STA) is a flexible support option designed for those times when you need a temporary change of environment away from your home. Whether it’s a respite break for yourself or a much-needed rest for your caregivers, STA offers a valuable solution.

STA becomes especially beneficial when your usual support network is temporarily unavailable, ensuring that you continue to receive the care and attention you require.

At Approach Care, we understand the importance of providing a safe and enjoyable environment for your short-term accommodation needs, allowing you to recharge, connect, and make the most of your time away from home.

Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) serves as a transitional housing solution for individuals who, due to delayed disability support readiness, require a temporary residence before moving into their long-term home.

To be eligible for our MTA services, you should have a designated long-term residence to transition to, but circumstances have led to a need for an intermediate living arrangement. Our MTA program typically provides accommodations for up to 90 days, ensuring you have a stable and comfortable place to reside during this transitional period.

At Approach Care, we understand that life’s journey can sometimes present unexpected challenges, and we are here to offer you the support and accommodation you need while you prepare for your permanent home. Our MTA services are designed to provide peace of mind, stability, and a nurturing environment as you make your transition to a more permanent living situation.

Assistance with Daily Living is a dedicated funding sub-category categorized under Core Supports within the NDIS framework. This budget allocation is specifically designed to ensure that you receive the necessary support to carry out your daily personal activities, empowering you to maintain a high level of independence within the comfort of your home and community.

High Intensity Daily Personal Activities (HIDPA) is a term coined by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to describe specialized health-related support services tailored to individuals with complex daily needs. These services are vital for assisting individuals in effectively managing their daily lives. To guarantee the safe and effective delivery of HIDPA services, the NDIA has established stringent planning, safeguards, and staff training requirements. Funding for these essential services is designated within an individual’s National Disability Insurance Scheme plan (NDIS plan).

At Approach Care, we take our responsibilities seriously when it comes to providing HIDPA support to individuals. Our commitment to implementing this policy is evident in our practice, where we deliver HIDPA support to children, young people within LWB Children Youth and Families foster care, residential care, aftercare services, as well as to adults in Disability and Mental Health Services across every state and territory.

A clean and well-organized home plays a crucial role in maintaining happiness and overall well-being. Within the NDIS household tasks category, Approach Care offers valuable support from experienced NDIS providers for a wide range of domestic chores and household activities.

Our trained support workers are here to assist you at your preferred level, ensuring that you receive the necessary support for essential domestic tasks, all within the comfort of your own home. Our objective is to not only facilitate your daily independence but also to help you develop the skills needed to carry out various household activities.

Our experienced support workers are here to assist you with a variety of household tasks throughout your home. This includes cleaning, laundry, dishwashing, changing bed linen, vacuuming and washing floors, dusting, essential ironing, meal preparation, and general house maintenance. Whether you need help with daily chores or occasional tasks, our team is dedicated to ensuring your home remains a clean, comfortable, and well-maintained living environment.

Whether you require physical assistance with these tasks or simply someone to oversee and support your efforts as you build your skills and independence, our NDIS household tasks services are here to provide you with the extra support you need in daily life, empowering you to live more autonomously each and every day.

At Approach Care, we understand the importance of community engagement and social participation. Our Community Social and Civic Activities services align with the NDIS-funded support category, “Assistance with Social and Community Participation” found under Core Supports in your NDIS plan.

Our aim is to support NDIS participants in achieving their goals related to community, social, and recreational activities. Whether these activities take place in a community setting or within a center, our services are designed to empower you to actively participate in the broader community.

We work closely with you to ensure that all support provided is reasonable and aligned with your plan goals. For instance, you can utilize this funding to have a Disability Support Worker accompany you to a music concert or to engage in activities like attending personal development courses, joining social groups, taking outings or holidays, participating in holiday camps, visiting local libraries, enjoying movies or concerts, attending community events, or becoming a part of a sporting club.

Our commitment is to promote social inclusion, active involvement, and the enrichment of your community and civic life.

At Approach Care, we recognize that individuals with complex health needs require specialized attention. Our Community Nursing Care for High Needs services is designed to provide comprehensive medical and nursing care to ensure your well-being and comfort.

To be eligible for these disability-related health supports, your needs must be ongoing and directly associated with a significant and permanent functional impairment. These vital supports must also be included in your NDIS plan. Once included in your plan, you can access these services just like any other item in your NDIS plan.

Our registered nurses collaborate closely with you, your healthcare provider, and other medical professionals to create a personalized care and service plan that addresses all of your unique needs and goals. You can trust our team of registered nurses, who are not only highly professional and experienced but also dependable, attentive, and compassionate at all times.
