Description

We work with older people and those living with a disability to help them live as independently as possible. Lifewise Support Workers help with a number of everyday tasks such as showering, meal preparation, laundry, shopping and medication prompts. Our support is designed to meet your needs. This could mean we only come in once a fortnight or may involve helping you out several times a day.

A Lifewise Support Worker’s assistance could include helping your loved one with a task, doing it for them, or teaching them how to do it for themselves. Our goal is to help them become as independent as they can be.

We also support people who have chosen Individualised Funding (IF) as their disability support. IF can be simple and easy to use, and offers people more flexibility and choice about how their support works. We coach and guide people to make the best use of their funding, and help them to work out a budget. With IF you can employ your own Support Workers so that you have more control over your care.
