The Disability Trust pioneered the development of specialist teams who provide flexible and responsive in-home care for people with disabilities.
Care Solutions is the Disability Trust’s biggest single program, with around 400 casual staff working with clients across south-eastern NSW – from Sydney in the north to the Victorian border.
In many cases the efforts of the Care Solutions team ensures a person with a disability can remain living independently in the community instead of requiring nursing home accommodation.
The team’s focus is on consistency, continuity and tailoring solutions that meet the needs of individual clients. These could include personal care, emergency care, housekeeping, shopping and meal preparation – in many cases on a daily basis. Care Solutions operates around the clock, and can even provide emergency overnight in-home assistance in cases where the regular carer is unavailable at short notice.
Care Solutions can be accessed on a permanent or casual basis.
The Disability Trust can advise prospective clients on their possible eligibility for financial assistance from the government.
