Personal care is vital for daily life and progression as an individual, where here at MCT Care, we ensure that the needs of our client are met at various levels of personal care.

Our care is specific to our client’s needs, which may vary widely:

    •  Help during eating or drinking
    • Mobility: moving in or out of bed and around the house
    • Attending appointments
    • The bladder, bowel management and menstrual care

Community Participation

 

Community participation can relate to various things but most commonly:

    • Going to work.
    • Going to school or further education.
    • Seeing and talking to friends, family and colleagues.

Such actions are all part of community participation and several factors can affect it:

    • Personal (health, mobility, support from family and friends)
    • Societal (distance, physical accessibility)

For people with disability, community participation can be hindered by systemic factors such as the availability of support for disability needs.  With all this into consideration, we at MCT Care provide specific support so that participants meet their goals in a participating community, social or recreational activities. We at MCT Care believe that community involvement and engagement serve to connect individuals and in turn, create a sense of contribution, which is a vital aspect of being independent.

 

With the assistance of our experienced and caring staff, our clients will be able to carry out various activities, such as:

    • Join a sporting club.
    • See a movie or a concert.
    • Visit your local library.
    • Join a social group.
    • Attend personal development courses.
    • Go on holiday.

This ensures that our clients are empowered and have more control and choice over their lifestyle as per our MOTO: “Live the life, the way you want”. Our staff will not only aid in carrying out the goals of our participants but also:

    • lookout for opportunities where contributions can be made.
    • Understand the Provider role as a facilitator for the client’s goals.

Participants can enjoy while going out with their own cultural/language Support workers.

Support coordination.

 

Support coordination refers to strengthening participants’ abilities to coordinate and implement supports in their plans so that they can participate more fully in the community. Support coordination is split into three levels:

 

Level 1: Support Connection

Where we assist participants to implement their own plan by strengthening their ability to connect with systems of support, providers and understand their own NDIS plans. Through us, our clients will receive support to effectively utilise their NDIS plans. We hope to increase our client’s capacity to participate independently in NDIA processes. Support connection may include:

    • Understand the plan
    • Connect with supports and services
    • Establish supports

 

Level 2: Coordination of supports

This level serves to strengthen our client’s ability to design and build supports with a focus on connecting systems of support.  Through this, we can assist participants in governing not only their services but also their lifestyle. Support coordinators act as guides which assist participants in maintaining a robust network of supports, both informal and formal.  Coordination of support may include:

    • Targeted support coordination
    • Crisis planning and mitigation
    • Build resilience and capacity

 

Level 3: Specialist support coordination

This support is delivered through an expert as it involves specific high complex and high-level risks in a participant’s situation. It is provided by a qualified and experienced practitioner to meet the individual needs of the participant’s circumstances such as Social worker, Psychologist, Occupational Therapist or Mental health nurse. They will serve to address barriers that inhibit our clients from implementing their plan.

Specialist support coordination may include:

    • Address complex barriers
    • Design complex service plan

Assist travel and transport

 

 

This type of support relates to the assistance of our clients in getting from one location to another, where through our trained staff can transport them to and from their place of work to appointments. 

Transport supports include training to use public transport or personal transport-related assistance. We ensure that our not only is our client able to get from one point to another but also help to build their capacity to travel independently. This type of support is based on the participant’s disability support needs for example:

    • Low mobility due to wheelchair
    • Specific requirements for travel.

 

Our experienced and trained staff guide/trained them to be independent for the travel with safety precaution.
