Support at Home
ALARA provides a range of flexible and responsive support services to assist at home and in your local community.
ALARA can assist you to use your Disability Services Individual funding or Block Funding allocation, self-directed or private funding to tailor an at home support service to meet your needs.
This service can be provided on a regularly rostered or drop in basis. Your staff can assist with meal preparation, household tasks, personal hygiene and care, shopping, attending appointments and household management.
ALARA will assist you to select a team of support workers that you feel comfortable and confident with and will ensure on-going appropriate training and support.
An after-hours on call support is available on weekends and public holidays to ensure your service runs smoothly and there is a point of contact in the case your needs change.
In designing your service ALARA will work in partnership with you, your family and your support network to ensure that we fit seamlessly into your lifestyle and routine.
