What are Disability Support Services?

Are you or a loved one in need of disability support services, but don’t know where to start? There are many disability care options available these days. To help determine what disability support you need, it’s best to first work out your goals. This will highlight the areas of support that will help you achieve them.

Disability Support Services can cover a wide range of needs. Anywhere from domestic care support services to companionship, or even someone to help with your gardening. These services can all come under the umbrella of disability care. But what other disability support services are available?

Personal Care

Personal care can include assistance with:

  • Communication
  • Eating
  • Dressing
  • Showering
  • Bathing
  • Grooming
  • Toileting
  • Mobility

Personal care services can help you start your day more efficiently, or simply just take some stress out of completing daunting tasks on your own.

Home Help

Home help, also known as domestic care, means you don’t have to struggle with general house chores alone. Whether it’s vacuuming, doing the dishes, or just helping to keep your place tidy, you can get the help you need from disability care housework services. Domestic care extends outside the home too and can include assistance with shopping.


Companionship services can include things like:

  • Home visits
  • Walks and other outings
  • Social catch ups

Even if it’s something as simple as going out for a coffee, companionship can help combat feelings of isolation and loneliness. Plus, you can feel safe knowing you’re in the company of someone who has your safety and best interests at heart.

Social Support and Community Participation

Social interactions can be daunting for anyone. Similar to companionship services, however social support services can help you to participate within the wider community. If you need some support to integrate with your community, disability support carers can help.

Pet Care

Pets make great companions and ease feelings of loneliness. If you are one of the millions of people who own a pet, disability support workers can help with your furry friend. Carers make excellent dog walkers, and some also offer pet sitting services for the times when you can’t be there.

Gardening and Home Maintenance

Sometimes garden or other home maintenance can take a back seat to the other priorities in life. But you can access support in these areas as well. Gardening and home maintenance services can include:

  • Lawn mowing
  • Pruning
  • Trimming hedges
  • Weeding
  • Other “Handyman” jobs
