Domestic Services

Domestic Support Services to take care of the little things, so you can focus on what’s important

We, along with the kind of empathy, support and understanding that can only come from lived experience.

We provide a variety of Domestic Support services to assist our disabled clients and their families to undertake day-to-day household tasks, to help them reduce the stressors in their lives and meet the challenges of everyday life. These services are designed to assist people of all ages and levels of ability to increase or maintain their independence, by helping them to complete regular tasks and activities of daily living and to master valuable life skills.

Access to Domestic Support services is generally available to anyone with an NDIS plan or funding and is typically funded by the core supports budget of a person’s NDIS plan. However, while most NDIS participants can request access to Domestic Support services and receive essential assistance with performing daily household chores, the level of funding available to each person will vary depending upon the terms of their NDIS plan.

“One person caring about another represents life’s greatest value” – John Rohn

At Support to Grow, we’re an all-inclusive bunch of grapes and we want to make sure that everyone gets the help and support they need to live the life they want. We hate the thought of someone not being able to access a service they need because they don’t have NDIS funding, so if you, your little snow pea, or your differently-abled adult loved one need support or assistance or you’d like to access our programs or services, but you don’t have an NDIS plan or other funding, reach out to us. We’re committed to providing everyone with the practical support they need to meet the challenges of everyday life, so we offer competitive rates for the services and supports we provide.

While we love caring for your little mung bean, Support to Grow exists to provide support to any person who has additional needs – young or old.

“Trees don’t grow even, they don’t grow straight just however it makes them happy.” – Bob Ross

While all our clients are welcome to access our Domestic Services – regardless of whether they have an NDIS plan or funding, or they are self-funding their access to domestic services – they tend to be targeted more towards meeting the needs of adult clients.

Our support workers can provide the individualised, practical daily assistance and support you need to undertake routine household tasks and learn valuable life skills, enabling you to live more independently while giving you more time to do more of the things that make you happy and pursue the things that make you, “you”.

Domestic Services for adults

Our goal is to help everyone to live a purposeful, fulfilling life. We never want anyone to feel dis-empowered or “useless” in any way whatsoever – quite the opposite, in fact! We want to empower you or your disabled adult loved one to be as independent as possible, so we encourage, teach, and assist you to do as much as you can for yourself.

At the same time, we’re here to take some of the load from you, to ensure your home is safe, clean, and well-maintained, so you have more time to do the things you enjoy without the worry and burden of trying to do everything yourself.

Depending on your needs, wants, and personal goals, our disability support staff can provide you with regular or occasional domestic support and assistance. We can either attend to basic household chores for you or can guide or teach you how to perform the required tasks yourself, to build your confidence, capabilities, and independence.

If you are an eligible NDIS participant who has a goal related to home and living supports that can’t be met through informal, mainstream, community or related supports, you are encouraged to apply to the NDIS for Home and Living Supports. The NDIS will assess your application, identify appropriate supports that may help you to achieve those goals, and decide whether to provide you with funding for home and living supports.
