Five Ways A Disability Support Service Provider Can Change Your Life
The measure of any society is how it treats its most vulnerable members. Disability support service providers are a critical element in making sure people living with a disability have the capacity to lead full and autonomous lives. Here are five ways they can change your life.
Ensuring Quality of Care
It is of utmost importance that those living with a disability can access the best care possible. The service sector that has arisen around the provision of that care is regulated by Government oversight through legislation including the Disability Services Act 2006 and the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013. This ensures that consistent standards are adhered to by disability service providers.
Access to care provided in a professional way by qualified and highly experienced support staff, such as those at Community Access Care (CAC), is a necessity. Engaging service providers who are guided by key principles of care that respect the inherent dignity of those with a disability, guarantees that the supports required by their clients are delivered appropriately.
Empowering people with a disability to lead a fulfilling and independent existence is a core aspect of disability support service provision. The first general principle enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities speaks to the importance of respecting individual autonomy and independence of person.
A key feature of independence is the capacity to choose where you live and under what circumstances. Effective disability support provides people with a disability the support necessary to make decisions about their living arrangements. At CAC, we take great pride in working with our clients to put in place proactive support solutions that assist them in developing the confidence to have decision making power and control in their day-to-day lives.
Provision of Tailored Care
In supporting the needs of people with a disability, it is essential to understand that everyone’s needs are different. A professional disability support service focused on working with individuals living with a disability to find solutions for independent living arrangements is best placed to offer care packages that are sensitive to the specific needs of each person.
The experienced CAC team operates with the full knowledge that there is no such thing as a one size fits all approach to disability care. Our services are provided with full consideration for what each of our clients require on their path to independent living.
Staying Connected with the Community
Developing a supported independent living program must ensure that a person with a disability can maintain a strong connection with their community. An organised disability support service provider is well positioned to offer a range of services that target activities beyond the domestic sphere.
The transport services that CAC provides extends the ability of our clients to exert control over their lives. This may involve enabling a person with a disability to directly influence purchasing decisions regarding food and other necessities, or participating in social groups and other interests. Having access to such professional services can expand support networks and increase quality of life.
A Friend in Need
Living with a disability can be extremely lonely and lead to people becoming withdrawn from life. The friendly CAC staff approach their work with empathy and will work closely with loved ones to ensure that the people they are supporting feel safe and valued as the important members of our society that they are.
