Personal Support & Home Care Services

The effects of a spinal cord injury on the body, such as paralysed muscles and other changes to the body, mean that people who have such an injury require support to meet their daily personal and lifestyle needs.

Personal Support & Home Care Services is formally accredited and recognised by industry and government to operate within the Human Services Quality Standards, AS/NZS ISO9001:2008 Quality Management System, and other applicable quality frameworks. The service provides personal and lifestyle support on both a temporary or permanent basis, either in the home or in a community setting. The service is available across Queensland for adults who are 16 years or older and have a funding source, which is either private or through Disability Services Queensland, compulsory third party insurers or some other government source.

Depending on funding agreements our Personal Support Workers provide assistance with personal care, light domestic duties and community access. In special circumstances, arrangements can be made for personal support in the workplace and for holiday travels. In addition to providing specialised support to clients with spinal cord injuries, we offer Veterans’ Homecare and Community Service in Brisbane, Bundaberg and Townsville.

We endeavour to work collaboratively with our clients to develop a support program that is tailored to individual requirements and flexible to changing circumstances. We value our clients’ involvement in all aspects of service delivery, recruitment, training and the ongoing management of Personal Support Workers.

All of our Personal Support Workers are recruited on the basis of experience and personal qualities which instill confidence around their ability to provide a dedicated and professional service. They all undertake comprehensive training, including on-the job-training supported by an experienced worker familiar with our clients’ individual needs.
