In Australia, there are more than 4 million people living with a disability. This can include people with an intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive, neurological, or psychiatric disability. We believe that every Australian has the right to live a full and accomplished life, which is why we choose to work with these vulnerable groups in our community.
St John’s Community Care is committed to delivering a range of services to the community, including disability care services. Our team of specialist disability carers are passionate about the work they do, and love supporting fellow Australians to lead fulfilling lives. Disability care requires specialty knowledge, and not only does our team have this expertise, but they also have the desire to create positive change.
Everything we do aims to enhance and enrich the lives of others. Some of our key disability care services include a young lifestyle care facility, in-home lifestyle support, learning and life skills development, transport, and social respite. We’re proud to offer care that is responsive, inclusive and flexible.
Types of disability care
No two individuals are the same, which means no two types of care should be the same either. St John’s Disability Care respects the right for people with a disability to choose who they live with and where they live, meaning we can provide comprehensive support in one of our 24-hour care housing accommodations, in supported independent living accommodation, or in your own home of choice.
If you are researching types of care, it’s important that you consider every option and weigh up what may be the best solution for you. Chat with loved ones and professionals to understand how care services can positively impact your life. The team at St John’s Community Care are always available to discuss what particular programs, services and facilities may be suited to you.
How we operate with the NDIS
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) aims to provide support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability. As Australia’s first national scheme for people with a disability, its core function is to provide funding directly to individuals.
As a provider for both the NDIS and other disability services, St John’s Disability Care is committed to delivering outstanding care to those requiring support in our community. Our organisation is dedicated to a mantra of staying connected with customers and ensuring they are able to access greater choice, control and freedom in their lives.
Why is quality care important for people living with a disability?
A disability support worker can provide both practical care and support for people living with disabilities. Quality care services are important to assist everyone to live a life with choice, control and freedom. Support and care services can be empowering, enriching and life-changing.
