As an NDIS provider, Trusted Care & Services is dedicated to providing quality support services to individuals with disabilities. Our team of support workers plays a crucial role in delivering this care, and their commitment to their work is what sets us apart. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at what a day in the life of a Trusted Care support worker looks like.
Starting the Day
A Trusted Care support worker’s day starts early, usually with a visit to their first client. Before beginning their day, they will take the time to review their client’s care plan and any specific instructions or requests from the client or their family. This ensures that they have a clear understanding of the tasks and activities that need to be completed during their visit.
One of the most important tasks that Trusted Care support workers undertake is assisting clients with their personal care. This can include tasks such as helping them get dressed, showering or bathing, and grooming. Depending on the client’s needs, this can be a physically demanding task that requires patience, empathy, and attention to detail.
Assisting with Daily Living
Trusted Care support workers are also responsible for assisting clients with their daily living activities. This can include cooking meals, cleaning the house, and doing laundry. They may also help clients with shopping or running errands, ensuring that they have everything they need to live comfortably and independently.
Social and Community Participation
Social and community participation is an essential aspect of life, and Trusted Care support workers recognise this. They help clients to access social and community activities that they are interested in, such as attending classes, visiting friends, or going out for lunch. This not only improves the client’s mental wellbeing but also helps them to build strong relationships with others in their community.
Trusted Care & Services is committed to providing clients with access to innovative technologies that can improve their quality of life. Support workers are trained in the use of these devices and can help clients with mobility, communication, and other daily living activities. This includes devices such as mobility scooters, smart home systems, and communication devices.
Making a Difference
Being a Trusted Care support worker is a challenging but rewarding role. They play a vital role in the lives of our clients, helping them to live independently and achieve their goals. For many of our clients, our support workers are more than just care providers; they become trusted friends and confidants who make a significant difference in their lives.
