Services include but are not limited to:
- daily living support such as personal care, personal hygiene, and mobility support (transfer assistance)
- accessing and participating in the community
- assistance with food preparation
- assistance with health and fitness
- assistance getting to appointments
- some travel support (as per funding model)
- overnight support (active and passive)
Social & Lifestyle Support – Community Access
We know that people have busy lives and therefore support to access social, recreational and other activites in the community is an essential service. The aim of our customised support is always to add value to your life and self-determination.
Support may be delivered by a support worker, a peer worker, or another member of the team as appropriate. Whether it’s going to a doctor’s appointment, getting to work, playing sport, going on holiday or seeing a movie, we believe that it is important for people to participate fully in activities of their choice.
Skill & Capacity Building
Tailored to your specific goals, AQA support can help you to develop skills that will bring you greater independence, confidence, and control in your life. Examples include developing independent living skills, participating in a recreational activity, building confidence to engage services in your community, and accessing public transport.
If you have a goal you are trying to achieve or a skill you want to learn, and need some assistance to achieve this, AQA may be able to introduce you to a staff member who can support you.
Domestic Support Services
Support and assistance with domestic tasks is also available as part of, or in addition to, other services engaged. This includes assistance with domestic tasks around the house such as cleaning floors, bathrooms and changing bed linen. Services are delivered by a support worker who can provide them under your instruction and supervision.
Support with domestic tasks is provided in addition to other personalised services. We do not offer it as a stand-alone service type.
Short-term & Ad-Hoc Services
Are you planning to visit Melbourne for work, an event, or an activity? Have you scheduled a surgical procedure and will need some additional help while recovering? Are you looking forward to a mini getaway and need some additional support, or some support in a different location? We may be able to help.
