I was able to go away on holidays knowing that mum was being cared for by someone we had chosen together. Our culture is very important to my mother. I was happy to find someone that would be able to socially connect with her.
I was one of the first people to sign up to Mable back in 2015. Since then, I’ve connected with eight support workers on Mable and they all help me do different things and achieve my goals. One of my support workers, Fiona, lives really close by, so we go to the local basketball courts and she sometimes takes me to watch the Australian Baseball League games in Sydney. My other support worker, Angi, has been supporting me for the last year and supports me at my art classes. I recently held my own art exhibition with the help of my mum and Angi. Mable makes it really easy for me to find great support workers near me.
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.
We needed someone experienced in dealing with difficult behaviours to manage the needs of our 19 year old daughter who has severe autism. We desperately needed a break and she needed exercise and freedom from us. With Mable we had the flexibility to tailor a program that suited her. We used our RIAP funding package and found Mable fees to be very reasonable
