Our team of experienced Support Workers are trained in all aspects of the work they are undertaking. You need meal prep? Cooking for tonight done and some spare in the freezer? Personal care? Cleaning? We are with you to make sure your place looks exactly how you want it to. Gardening and lawn care? We will make your garden look spectacular. You need ongoing mental health supports? We are right beside you to support you on your journey to living your best life.
A Support Worker of your choosing will attend to your needs, with discretion and with kindness.
Support work isn't supposed to be boring and community access means dramatically more than a simple trip to the supermarket or specialist appointment.
We will talk to you and listen to your needs and desires. Over time, we'll build up a picture of what you most like to do and you will appreciate doing things that you didn't know were available to you.
Let's go out to dinner! Let's go on a trip or an adventure! Let's discover how normal (and how exciting) life can be!
Once you have approved of your team, you want to know that they are going to be there for you. Of course we all have time off, vacations, sick days - so we ensure that there are enough team members that you are familiar with, and happy with, to cover those occasions.
Communication is key - we want to keep you in the loop and plan for known disruptions. We will give you a roster each week so you know who is coming into your house and at what time. And we pledge that you will not have someone unknown dumped on you! We are reliable.
Lakefield Care has a Social Worker who is able to walk beside you to support you in your personal needs. Whether this be referrals to other Services, housing issues or advocacy.
