ATZ Care is one of Australia’s leading NDIS registered providers of Core Support services, supporting children and adults living with disability.
We are a family-owned and operated provider, and our dedicated focus is on meeting the needs of both children and adults living with a disability in our community.
Personal care supports
Personal care supports relate to assistance with daily personal activities including assistance with, or supervision of, personal tasks of daily life. For example:
- personal hygiene, including showering, bathing, oral hygiene, dressing and grooming;
- toileting, bladder and bowel management and menstrual care;
- eating and drinking;
- attending appointments;
- use of aids and appliances, hearing and communication devices;
- mobility and transferring, for example moving in and out of bed and on or off the toilet; or
- application of splints, basic first aid due to injuries sustained as a result of a participant’s disability.
Personal care supports may be required across a variety of settings. For example, a participant living alone in their own home, living with family or other people, when undertaking social, recreational, education or employment activities or during holidays away from home.
Assistance with Social and Community Participation supports
Social and community participation is about meeting people with similar interests and joining in social and community activities. It means going where others go, doing what others do, with other people and choosing activities you enjoy. Social and community participation also means different things to different people. It can include going to your local café, joining a netball team, bushwalking with a friend, doing a craft class, getting work experience, or volunteering.
Social and community participation is important because it can:
- Help you feel included and connected to others
- Give you opportunities to build relationships with friends
- Grow your social networks and help you feel more included
- Increase your confidence and build your ability to participate with your peers
- Help you develop skills to be more independent and feel safe in your community
- Build skills and relationships that help with getting a job
- Help you find activities you enjoy doing.
It can be good to try different activities. You may not know if you enjoy something until you try it. It may feel different at first, but with the right support and help you may find activities you enjoy.
