To decide on your goals you can start by answering the following questions:
- What do you enjoy doing most?

- What type of lifestyle do you want at home?

Assessment and Management
Together we consider your needs, personal goals, lifestyle and budget. We design a detailed plan of support so you can live in your own home and stay active in your community. We provide support to navigate the health and community care system by organising referrals, expert advice and advocating on your behalf. We monitor your progress and adjust your plan as your needs change.

Reporting and Quality Assurance
We have a legal responsibility to make sure your services are always of a high quality and meet government standards. To do this we must have up to date quality systems and processes. These include your monthly statements, reports to government, regular audits, training for staff, health and safety policies and police checks.
Administration associated with service delivery including insurances, office costs, payments to suppliers, invoicing, IT, payment and management of workers.
