We aim to provide opportunities for people to enjoy a meaningful life by strengthening participants’ self-identity, independence and vision of the future with behaviour support knowledge. Our staff bring their compassion and experience to support this journey and we love a drive to the country.
We will assist with building capacity of you the participant, your family and services to better support you. We focus mainly on environmental change and skill building to change things around. Currently we go to the following areas: Port Pirie, Clare, Kadina, Port Broughton, Yorke Peninsula, Renmark, Berri, Barmera, Loxton and some Victorian rural areas. We are always open to a new sea or tree change – so give us a call.
There is no way around it there aren’t enough PBS practitioners out there. Brightt is undertaking plans in Victoria now to.
Positive behaviour support is a great way to help people get unstuck from challenges they may face at home, work or in the community. Sometimes it can be simple changes in the environment, if they are finding they are not fitting in. Behaviour therapists visit the person and their supporters to find out ways to help people break through the barriers they are facing.
Are you in a nursing home, or have a family member who is, and you want to know if they should have a behaviour support plan? We have become specialised in this area and will work with stakeholders to write an assessment for whether ongoing behaviour support is required.
This is a question we often get asked. It seems that the disability sector, that has been so largely under funded for so long, has in the past looked at the path of least resistance when seeking accommodation for people with disabilities, particularly in country areas. This is most likely due to a lack of perceived resources in the area and genuinely due to a lack of resources to keep loved ones close to their family members.
Given the Royal commission into Aged Care (and soon Disability), there is a real desire for people to be able to choose where they live, whether in a nursing home or other. The first step is often some assessment from allied health professionals around housing needs. Individuals should also register with public and community housing. The support coordinator can assist with these things and help get you on the road to making choices about where you live.
