Home life

Most people receive home life assistance from family, friends and neighbours. 

This natural support can be the most helpful and least intrusive to people with disability and their families.

However, sometimes people require further support to live where and how they choose. 

Planning strategies

Plans reflect and acknowledge the importance of informal, natural supports such as friendships and neighbours, and local community connections. Planning may identify a requirement for formal supports and services however; these are most effective when they are complementary to and strengthening of informal natural relationships and connections in the person’s life. The plan documents the individual’s goals for a good life, the strategies to achieve these, and those related to the disability that may require funding.
