At Therapy Care one of our core values is ‘building enduring relationships’. This value is carried out in all aspects of the support we offer, including comprehensive plan management, daily living supports, social supports, therapy supports and in our group programs. Our team considers each participant’s core values, interests and personality traits, and matches them with a support worker or therapist who they will not only feel comfortable with, but has the specific skill set to meet their needs.
Today we will be spotlighting the enduring relationship between support worker Sarah and NDIS participant Joseph and Sarah have been working together for the last two years.
“Joseph and I have built a strong and trusting friendship over the past two years. I’m able to comfort Joseph in his times of need and celebrate special milestones with him,” says Sarah.
Joseph lives with renal failure, a history of stroke, and early dementia. Under the NDIS he currently receives therapy gym sessions twice a week, personal care, transportation and social outings.
“I have found that Joseph’s health both physically and mentally has dramatically increased since joining Therapy Care,” says Sarah.
Joseph’s current NDIS goals include:
✅ Building independence
✅ Increasing communication skills
✅ Utilising different equipment in gym sessions
✅ Building strength
Joseph’s journey has been a bumpy road due to his health conditions but he still always manages to stay motivated. In the last eight months, Joseph has gained an understanding of how receiving consistent support under the NDIS can benefit his lifestyle. For example, his social outings have encouraged him to communicate with people within the community and socialise with others outside of his family network.
“Joseph and I love to have a good laugh together and go out for lunch with one another. Joseph has a caring personality and is willing to help make anyone happy,” says Sarah.
Joseph’s philosophy is, “if you have the opportunity to help someone take it, because you never know when you may be the one needing help.”
We’re so proud of how far you’ve come Joseph, and are excited to continue watching you on your journey.
