We are pleased to bring our services to Western Australia and work side-by-side with the spinal cord damage community. For almost 60 years, we have supported people with spinal cord damage to live accessible, equitable and empowered lives in a way they choose.
Personal Support and Home Care Services
From late February 2019, Spinal Life Australia will begin training specialist Personal Support and Home Care Services staff to support clients in Western Australia.
We give our personal support workers specialist in-house training to ensure we can provide a service that is right for you.
Together, with a dedicated Client Service Officer and access to after-hours support, we listen to you to develop the solutions for your unique needs.
Our flexible and reliable services are available every day and include:
- Personal care at home and work
- Specialist, complex personal care
- Domestic assistance around the home
- Lifestyle support – attending appointments, activities, events, and holidays
- Transition support from hospital to home
We believe in your goals and are ready to support you as you need, when and where you choose.
Spinal Life Australia is a registered NDIS provider.
Looking after your health is important, especially for people who have sustained spinal cord damage.
Our Community Nursing services in Western Australia provide specialist in-home nursing care from a fully qualified Registered Nurse, including bladder and bowel care and pressure wound care.
They can also talk to you about your funding options under the NDIS to access vital health equipment and services.
As of October 2019, the NDIS will be funding disability-related health supports, providing even more opportunities to ensure your health is being looked after.
Through our services, we’ve helped members find their ‘more‘ through one-on-one advocacy to ensure members get the most out of their NDIS plans, assisted them to live more independently and secured funding for much needed home modifications and equipment.
Our Peer Support team in WA all have lived experience with spinal cord damage and use their experiences to provide advice and guidance to others, and let you know you’re not alone.
As a member, you will be a part of something more, with benefits including:
