Description

To receive home based support, a client must first be assessed by a Service Coordination (NASC) agency and given a ‘Needs Assessment’.   A Needs Assessment will determine if a client is entitled to extra support towards developing independent living skills and social competence in a community setting.

Support workers spend an agreed number of hours in a person’s home providing personal support and household management services. The number of hours and type of tasks to be done by the support worker is identified during a needs assessment.

Support is usually provided on a one to one basis to assist with personal support and household management. This may mean supporting a person to do the task themselves or doing the task for them if they are unable to.
