A Day in Your NEW Life…

The level of assistance you’d be providing always depends on the ability and health of the person you are supporting.

A ‘day in the life’ of a Support Worker could involve:

  • Providing companionship and support during daily activities
  • Helping a person with personal care, health care and hygiene
  • Joining in outings and other social activities
  • Performing various household tasks including planning menus, cooking and serving meals, cleaning, shopping and general services
  • Helping people with a disability to maintain contact with their family and friends
  • Supporting a person to develop skills and abilities for greater independence and safety
