Able Australia appreciates the many challenges faced by carers and the demanding role of providing daily support for people with disabilities. For many carers, this is a full time job. Able Australia respite provides ‘time out’ for both the individual being supported and the carer.
Able facility based respite service
The intent of this service is the provision of high quality, regular and planned respite support focused on supporting the child with a disability to remain with their family, and enabling the child to experience respite in a homely environment that ensures the young person's right to safety, stability and development.
Staff will provide positive behavioural management and support to this group based on robust individualised planning. Comprehensive behaviour support plans will be developed and maintained for each individual. Behaviour Support Plans will be relevant to respite and home settings.
Referrals to this service should be made through Disability Intake and Response, Commonwealth Respite and Care Centre and/or a Community Service Organisation. Self-referrals are also accepted and should be made to the Able Respite Manager.
