Where will I be working?
In Adelaide we work with multiple Local Area Councils and many not-for-profits, with clients on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and individuals supported by Veterans Home Care (VHC).
Most of our clients are in their own homes, and need basic domestic assistance to help them live independently and safely at home. Other clients may need a higher level of assistance with more complex clinical needs.

What will a typical day look like?
Wondering what you will be doing day-to-day? When it comes to support work, variety is definitely the spice of life!
Each client will have different needs, but one of your main responsibilities is to socialise with them and be a companion and friend. This includes chatting and interacting with them and providing emotional support. These interactions can have a positive impact on a client's mental health and overall well-being.
You will also have to take care of daily chores like general cleaning, housekeeping, and cooking. Many clients will also need help with personal care tasks such as showering, shaving and getting dressed. Clients also may need to be driven to medical appointments, events in the community, or down to the local shops.
