Fostering independence under your own roof

Personal support

Personal support through Omnicare Alliance services could help you achieve greater independence at home and in your community.

In a nutshell:

  1. You're in control of your lifestyle choices.
  2. We build strong relationships between you and your support workers.
  3. Our goal is to help you achieve the best quality of life.

There's a range of Omnicare services available to clients with disabilities - across the categories of domestic assistance, personal care, social support and shopping assistance. We can also arrange for other providers to meet your requirements, as set out in your NDIS plan.

Our team members recognise the positive impact they can have on a client's life. They also understand their role is to support clients in achieving lifestyle goals, rather than for them to become part of a client's identity.

By putting considerable emphasis on understanding clients' individual goals, circumstances and requirements, Omnicare aims to assign you support workers that will align as closely as possible.

We also strive to limit the number of members of your support team, so you have continuity and the opportunity to develop constructive relationships with our staff. They, in turn, can build a greater understanding of you and of their role in helping achieve your lifestyle goals.

Our support workers can accompany you on social outings - such as entertainment, sporting and other public events - so you can maintain or expand your social connections. We can support if you enjoy shopping trips, or deliver your groceries, if you prefer. There are opportunities for primary carers to take short breaks from their support duties.

Omnicare team members can work with you to maintain or develop independent living skills that may enable you to have a stronger sense of self-determination under your own roof. We can help you undertake minor household chores, such as laundry, dishes, vacuuming, light gardening tasks, etc. For major chores, we can organise specialised service providers.

Personal care might take the form of assistance with dressing, bathing, grooming or toilet visits.

Our support workers can help out with wound dressing and any medication management requirements. Omnicare can also refer you to other providers for more specialised nursing care or allied health services.

Whether you've been living long-term with disability, or are adjusting to life with a new disability, we'll support you in broadening your horizons and finding fulfilment through your abilities.
