What is Mable?

Mable is an online social marketplace of independent support workers and each has unique qualifications, abilities and experience. Each support worker on Mable has a different level of experience and has unique qualifications.

How Mable can work with you

Professional support can come in many different forms, and this can be provided by experienced health professionals such as registered nurses. Each person has unique needs, support requirements and expectations, and with Mable, people seeking support are able to organise and schedule the support that matches their needs.

Aged Care

Most people who are in their later years want nothing more than to continue doing the activities they love, be supported and remain living independently, and all this could be made possible with the support of in-home nursing services. Whether you’re seeking aged care for yourself or you’d like to organise care for a loved one, you can do it all on Mable:

Dementia support: If your loved one is beginning to experience the effects of dementia, you could connect support from an experienced nurse on Mable who can also provide medication management.

Parkinson’s disease: Although not as common as dementia, Parkinson’s disease may require professional support, including medication management and in-home support to complete daily activities. With Mable, you could organise an experienced nurse to provide medication management and schedule a support worker who can provide personal care to ensure your loved one is receiving beneficial support.

A tip from the Mable Team: Registered nurses who connect to clients via Mable will set their ‘indicative rates’ and these are shown on their Mable profile. Nurses usually set their indicative rates anywhere between $40 to $50 per hour on weekdays and $45 to $60 on weekends.

Disability Support

On Mable, every independent support worker has unique abilities, qualifications and levels of experience. If you care for someone living with a disability in your family, you can head to Mable at any time to organise respite from an independent support worker providing social support and even connect with an experienced nurse. With Mable, you can narrow down your search by selecting experience in different disabilities:

Intellectual disability support: If your loved one experiences the effects of a significant intellectual disability, you can help them to grow a support team of people with different levels of experience and qualifications via the Mable platform.

Physical disability support: If you’re seeking support for a person who requires nursing services to help them with a physical disability such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy or someone living with a hearing or visual impairment, you could connect with nurses or support workers on behalf of them via Mable.

Short-term support

The period of time that follows an operation or injury can be difficult for you and your family, and finding one-off support without the right connections can make matters more complicated. Using the Mable platform, you could connect with a registered nurse who is experienced in aspects of short-term support:

Post-hospital support: If you or a loved one is requiring support after recovering from an illness or operation in hospital, you could connect with nurses who may have experience providing support. To discover a nurse with the right experience, you can use Mable’s advanced filters when searching.

Post-injury support: If you need support recovering from an injury, you could also connect with a nurse or support worker who has the experience to help you recover via Mable.

Rehabilitation support: A key part of rehabilitation is being able to improve your wellbeing in an environment that best suits you. By using Mable as a tool to help you independently recover, you could experience the freedom of choosing and controlling your support and recovery.

A tip from the Mable Team: With Mable, the amount of support you receive is totally up to you – you can organise nursing services for a couple hours during the day and you could even schedule a 24-hour shift once you’ve connected with a worker who is right for you.
