Disability Care Newcastle

Disability Care

Disability is often used as a blanket term and people assume that all disabled people face the same issues. This misconception can cause problems when it comes to offering care for disabled adults because some services take the same approach to all of their cases, without taking their specific needs into account. Here at Home Caring, we recognize that you need your own personaliesd support so you can live a full and happy life. You won’t get a one size fits all approach from us. We will assess your needs and build supports that are entirely centered around you.

NDIS Service Provider

Accessing services can be difficult for people with disabilities but Home Caring is here to help. We are a registered NDIS services provider that can help you maximise your NDIS funds with a range of services like disability home care, daily activities, self care, social and community support, day programs, and support coordination. Our Supported Independent Living options can also help you to achieve and maintain independence.

Home Support for Disabled Adults

Ensuring that disabled adults can live their lives to the fullest in the safety and comfort of their own home is a priority for Home Caring. When you choose us, our experienced and friendly home care workers will help you in any way that you need, whether that be basic CARE WORKERS with daily tasks or more involved assistance like heavy lifting and handling. We carefully select our caregivers to ensure that they all have the expert knowledge and experience to help you get the most out of life.

Disability Care at Home

We all feel comfortable in our own homes and that’s something that able bodied people take for granted. But for disabled people, it can be a big challenge. Your family and friends are likely to be worried about your ability to do simple tasks like cooking or shopping. Our Care Workers are there to help you in any circumstances and knowing that somebody will always be available to help will give you peace of mind. In some cases, you may only need disability care for a short period of time because your condition is not permanent or your family usually cares for you. Home Caring Newcastle can offer flexible services whether you need long term care or you only need for a short period of time.

Disability Support Services

If you require round the clock care and there are a lot of everyday tasks that you need assistance with, the best option is to have a disability support worker that lives in your home.

Services that a live-in carer provides include:

  • Helping clients in and out of their bed.
  • Helping clients to dress and undress.
  • Maintaining hygiene, developing an oral health routine, and shaving.
    Assisting during mealtimes.
  • Shopping for ingredients and cooking nutritious meals.
  • Taking clients to appointments using private hire vehicles or, in some cases, the carers own vehicle.
  • Collecting allowances and pension benefits and delivering them to the client.
  • Picking up prescriptions.
  • Cleaning and replacing towels, bedding, and clothing.
  • General housework tasks like cleaning, washing up after meals, and ironing clothes.
  • Helping clients to use the toilet and commode, or any other toilet aids they may need.
  • Administering medications or reminding clients to take medications.

In order to make sure that our home help for disabled adults is flexible and provides for your specific needs, we will assess the client’s daily routine and develop a care plan from there.

Developing A Comprehensive Support Plan

A client’s goals, wants, and needs are central to our approach here at Home Caring Newcastle. Our dedicated Case Managers work with clients and their families to develop a comprehensive support plan that works for your needs.

Home Care

Living with a disability doesn’t necessarily mean that you require live-in care. If you need assistance in some areas of your life but you still want to maintain your independence, visiting care may be more beneficial for you. You will continue to live at home and a carer will visit you to help you in whatever way you may need. Depending on the level of care that you need, they can visit you one, two, or three times each day.

While you may need a different level of care, it is likely that you will need help with the same tasks listed above. Your initial consultation will help to determine the number of visits you need per day and the tasks that your disability support worker will perform for you.

Supports for People With Physical Disabilities

If you are living with a physical disability, that does not mean that you cannot lead an active life and get involved with your local community. It is important that we all have the same opportunities, and Home Caring is here to make sure that happens. Our Care workers are dedicated to giving you the support that you need so you can live a varied life and achieve all of the things that you want to. Everybody has their own goals and aspirations in life and we will help you to meet yours by focusing on your unique strengths.

It’s entirely up to you what level of support we provide. If needs be, our disability support services will be there for you 24 hours a day. Alternatively, somebody can pop in once or twice a day, or even just once a week. All of our Care workers are trained to deal with a range of physical disabilities, sensory impairments, and communication challenges.

There are certain activities that are made difficult for people living with a physical disability, like domestic chores, and maintaining a simple daily routine. Organisational tasks like paying your bills or taking shopping trips can be challenging as well. Our Care workers will visit you in your home and help you handle all of these things.

Staying fit and healthy is often a problem for disabled adults, and Home Caring Newcastle can make it a lot easier for you. Our Care Workers will take you to the local fitness centre and help you to exercise safely. They can also take you to any medical appointments that you need to attend and help you to cook healthy meals. We also have a strong focus on your social activities because this is an important part of a healthy, positive lifestyle.

Supports for People With Learning Disabilities

Learning disabilities bring their own unique challenges and our Care Workers have the experience and knowledge to meet them. Learning disabilities affect everybody in a different way, which is why our personaliesd approach to care is so important. Our Care workers will take the time to get to know you and understand your specific needs.

Our Care Workers will help you to maintain your daily routine, keep your house clean and tidy, and stay connected to the local community. With our support, you can live an independent lifestyle and have an active social life.

Support for Families

Providing care for disabled adults is our main priority, but we also understand the client’s family may be in need of support as well. We give you peace of mind by ensuring that your loved ones are cared for, and we can help you to explore the other assistance that is available to you.

If you are acting as a caregiver, you may be entitled to some benefits to help you manage the financial aspect. We will help you find out if you are eligible for help and if you are, we can assist with applications. If you are unsure about disability aids that may help at home, we can give you good advice there as well.

Caring for a loved one with a disability can be a full time occupation and if you need some time away to go on holiday or you just need a bit of extra support, we can offer you short term support. It’s important to look after yourself as well and we are there to help you when you need it.

These are some of the supports that we can provide you:

  • Accommodation/Tenancy.
  • Help with personal activities.
  • Assistance with life transitions.
  • Help with travel and transport.
  • Developing life skills.
  • Group activities.
  • Household tasks.
  • Community nursing care.
  • Community participation.
  • Therapeutic support.
  • Behaviour support.
  • Early childhood support.
  • Home modification.
