This program could include recreational activities such as but not limited to:
- going to the gym,
- visiting the library or seeing a movie.
- assisted to attend appointments,
- undertake food shopping or use public transport
Or in home daily living activities such as cooking, cleaning, homework tasks or general play.
Respite (Short-term Accommodation)
Yourkids offer short term accommodation, commonly referred to as respite. Short term accommodation is tailored to the needs of our clients. Short term accommodation can look different for each individual person we support. Typically short term accommodation can involve transporting clients to and from their home at the beginning and end of their stay with us.
We have houses located in Parafield Gardens, Northfield, Para Hills and Largs Bay. Clients are able to stay overnight at our houses for as long as they wish, in line with their NDIS package. A respite stay can involve our clients being supported to maintain their regular routines and activities they undertake. Additionally, supported recreational activities and community outings can be negotiated.
Accommodation (Supported Independent Living)
Yourkids accommodation services provide a home for our clients with up to 24/7 care for people with disabilities. Yourkids enjoy a high retention rate of staff which enables our clients to develop meaningful relationships with our staff. Our clients are provided support to develop independence in their activities of daily living.
Support Workers are experienced and skilled in supporting our clients to develop routines that enable our clients to attend work or day options programs, purchase groceries, prepare and cook meals, undertake domestic duties and maintain connections with their family. Yourkids also has licensed residential facilities to provide support to children and young people under the Guardianship of the Chief Executive of the Department of Child Protection in Out of Home Care arrangements.
Fee for service
We can also accommodate clients with fee for service programs. Some of our clients find that government-subsidised services don’t meet their needs for in-home care while other clients prefer to top up their Home Care Packages with additional services. Yourkids can tailor a fee for service support program for your family. Call us today on (08) 8269 5521 to discuss your specific needs.
