Have you been looking for an in-home disability support service?
A lot of people don’t realise that they can access in-home disability support. It’s a thriving service that is not just meeting the needs of the community, but empowering people to pursue their ambitions and enjoy their lives more.
Who hires a disability support worker?
In short, anyone who lives with a disability and needs assistance in their daily life. That includes children, teenagers and adults who have physical and/or intellectual disabilities. Disability carers can help with a multitude of personal and domestic needs, from assisting with personal care to light cleaning and tidying.
Family carers appreciate the assistance provided by disability support workers because it gives them some time to go and do other things such as go to work, attend social events or meet commitments outside the home. They know that their loved one is in safe, capable hands in their absence. Disability carers are compassionate, patient and well-trained.
When hiring a disability support worker, it’s important that you make sure they are insured and have been security checked, for your safety and peace of mind. Many hold Working with Children cards and CPR and First Aid certificates.
Is it expensive to hire a disability support worker?
You’ll likely find that the fees are quite reasonable. If you have an NDIS package, then your out-of-pocket expenses will be greatly reduced.
At Mable, we receive a great deal of positive feedback from clients who hire disability carers through our online platform because we’re all about your comfort, choice and satisfaction. You are not just sent someone that’s been selected by a company. You get to choose who provides your support, the kind of support you receive and when you want your sessions.
