Disability Care in the Spotlight

A recent inquiry by the Senate has revealed that young disabled Australians are being forced into residential aged care in order to receive the assistance they so desperately need. The inquiry also found that within these facilities disabled youths are often neglected to the point of being completely ignored or forgotten.

The findings have opened up a much needed discussion in the health industry about the best way to eradicate the circumstances laid out in these disturbing findings, and how to best manage the health and unqiue needs of young Australians with disabilities.

While Prestige Inhome Care is often thought of as an organisation directed towards the needs of elderly Australians, we also offer a wide range of disability services appropriate for clients of all ages.

All prestige care staff and nurses are required to clear a police check before initiating care with a client. In addition, all staff in contact with underage clients are required to have a current working with children check.

All disability care is individually tailored to each client, with a comprehensive assessment and care plan developed to achieve the lifestyle each client desires. All care, case management and support services are personalised to ensure the complexity and individual nature of each person’s disability is cared for appropriately and wholly.

Prestige Inhome Care is a registered member of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), meaning we are an approved provider of disability care and our clients are eligible for support from the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

Receiving disability care in the home rather than a facility not only guarantees a more tailored experience, but also allows disabled children and adults to retain some form of normality in their lives, and to achieve a lifestyle they are comfortable with despite the challenges presented by their disability.
