Finding a support worker or home care can be a complex process simply because each person has individual needs and goals, which also may change over time. Every NDIS participant has an individual plan that lists their goals, such as participating in a local community activity or making friends. While the NDIS provides funding to eligible people based on these needs and goals, the choice and control of how the funded supports in your plan are used is completely in your hands. As an NDIS-approved provider, here is how Home Care Heroes further facilitates choice and control:
Choosing a Disability Support Worker for Yourself or a Family Member
When you sign up as a Member and post your first Mission, you can browse Heroes with a wide range of skills based throughout Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and the Central Coast NSW. You can choose a Hero in your local area, whose interests and skills align with what you need. Home Care Heroes places the choice and control of our disability support services in your hands, so you receive the support you need. Ultimately, you make the decision about who you want to work with, you decide what care you require, and you can communicate your expectations directly to the Hero right from the very beginning.
If you have found a Hero you like, you can choose to see that same Hero every week. Home Care Heroes understands that it can be especially frustrating having a different person arrive each time you require care, so we do not rotate staff endlessly like some other providers. You can choose to hire the same Hero regularly if you or your loved one are more comfortable seeing a familiar face – no need to repeat the same instructions over again to a different person every week! We believe in building genuine companionship through reliable, dedicated disability support services.
