Social Support

We all feel better when we’re connected with our families and community.

For some, it might be going to church every week and for others, it might be learning a new skill or being doing something just for fun.

Just because your mobility is impacted, or your health isn’t what it could be doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Mable can support you to live a busy, full and exciting life.

A clean and tidy home is a place where you can feel safe, comfortable and happy.

You know just how you like things done and your Mable Independent Support Person will be glad to help.

From changing the sheets and doing laundry to ironing, defrosting the fridge and mowing the lawn, there’s always something to be done and you can relax, knowing it’s taken care of.

Therapy Support

You can have a range of therapists visit and treat you in your own home.

It doesn’t make sense to have to go out for therapy appointments that may leave you fatigued or even a little sore.

Mable can arrange for you to have the therapy you need where you’re most comfortable. It often means the results are better too.

  • Podiatry
  • Physiotherapy/occupational therapy
  • Dietitian
  • Speech therapist

Independent Living

There’s always something that needs to be done so it’s comforting to know you can get help with these functions and maintain your independence.

You may need help with transport to go out and perform errands like visiting the bank, going to the doctor or picking up your new glasses.

Your Independent Support Person can even do your shopping for you and put your groceries away. Mable has a solution for all the little – and not so little – tasks that need to be done.

  • Drive you to appointments
  • Take you shopping or do the shopping for you
  • Cook delicious meals for you to suit your tastes

Aged Care Services Available in Melbourne

Our happy members

Mable announced the Learning Hub and I was blown away by the range of courses available and best of all, available free of charge for Mable support workers. I never expected the level of support Mable gives for its support workers, from the Learning Hub, equipment, to even the zoom meetings to check in.




Adel
Independent Support Worker
“We are in complete control now, where we weren’t before,” Graham says. “Plus, we’re getting at least twice as much service than we were with the other company. The administrative costs are a fraction of what they were.”






Graham
Aged Care Support Client
“I certainly am enjoying life with having found Mable,” Doug says. “I find it really easy to use. With Mable, you get the opportunity to choose who comes into your life and what you do and how you do it, which has made a big difference to my quality of life.”






Doug
Aged Care Support Client
"Mable has made life easier! I set my own rates, with simple admin fees and have built a strong relationship with my clients.










Diego
Independent Support Worker
"I’m in my final year of paramedic science at uni. Biggest thing with Mable is that it provides flexibility on both ends, for the client and the support worker. You’re able to tailor your hours and whatever you need, how much you can do!"







Jane
Independent Support Worker
"As a support worker working from the Mable platform, I find it very easy to connect with clients. I have eleven current long-term clients who all find the platform efficient – Mable gives everyone choice. As a case manager for long-term clients, Mable has given me the choice to select support workers that would best suit my client’s needs and it enables me to contact and meet with workers before agreeing to their contract. The Mable platform is very easy to use."
Fiona
Independent Support Worker
"Mable is the new way of doing things. It allows me to simply manage my funding and offers me the flexibility I need to live my life."









Grant
Disability Support Client
"The best benefit of using Mable was having a really personalised, flexible service that delivered above and beyond our expectations. It’s become a new life for my father. His life is improving, and it’s marvellous."







Caroline
Aged Care Support Client
“I liked how vigorously Mable vets support workers on its platform. They’ve got to get police checks, working with children checks if they’re working with kids, and they’ve got to pass certain bars which is really important. It protects everybody.”






Ashlee
Disability Support Client
“Finding Mable was a revelation. With Mable I get to choose the experience, and the pay level!”











Melissa
Disability Support Client
Every week they meet up and Nydia assists Kathy with photography, book events and her coaching business. “We’re really well matched in our professional goals and it feels like she’s backing me,”







Kathy
Disability Support Client
"It's because we've had this amazing opportunity to find the right support. It's made a huge difference for me personally and for Max as well. It's nice for him to have someone else to rely on and feel safe with. And for me, Mable has been a game changer. I feel like I'm in control again. I've never even had the mental capacity to even consider moving but now, I can see a really bright future for the two of us."

Natalie
Disability Support Client
The Mable platform is intuitive and easy to navigate, the support workers are easy to find and the platform has a decent search function. I use the Mable platform to book support and it keeps a history of my support and helps me to plan my schedules and timetables. I can use the platform for time management and record keeping for all my support workers. Because it’s online I can access it anywhere and use it on my mobile while on the go.
