5 Reasons to Consider Hiring a Disability Support Worker

Fairhands Accommodation & Care Services are proud to support the daily living needs of your loved ones. Here are five reasons why hiring a Disability Support Worker can benefit you and your loved ones. 

  • Emotional Support

Our Disability Support Workers can be a great source of emotional support, offering opportunities for discussion and debate and helping to create a deep sense of belonging and connection with others. From a joke to a positive word of encouragement, our care workers are always happy to lend an ear and help their clients thrive. 

  • Support with Daily Needs

There’s a lot of work that goes into taking care of a home. From cooking and cleaning to managing the bills and mowing the lawns, our support workers can offer a helping hand with these challenging but essential tasks. By delegating tasks to a care worker, your loved ones can spend more time enjoying their favourite activities and time with friends. 

  • Assistance with Medication Management

An in-home Disability Support Worker can help by providing tools including pill dispensers and keeping a log of medications to ensure your loved ones take the correct medications in accordance with their doctor’s directions. 

  • Minimise the Risk of Falls

Fall related injuries are common. By engaging an in-home support worker, you can reduce the risk of this occurring. In-home care workers can perform a risk assessment and ensure that the home environment is clean and uncluttered. Small changes may be suggested to improve safety within the home. This can help to ensure the ongoing independence of your loved one within the comfort of their own home. 

  • Assistance with Personal Hygiene

Disability Support Workers can provide hygiene assistance to help your loved ones feel fresh, clean and confident daily. From assistance with shaving to haircuts and showering, personal hygiene is an important aspect of life which can impact upon self-esteem and our general health. With Fairhands Care Services, your loved ones will always be looking and feeling their best.
