Elba offers a range of choices to enable our members to be in control
Independence; personal care and support
Assisting with and/or supervising personal tasks of daily life to enable the individual to live as autonomously as possible. A range of supports are provided to each individual in different environments, including but not limited to the individual’s own home.
Elba will work with you to develop a plan that outlines how we will support you to meet your personal support needs and achieve your goals. Our Human Resources team works in conjunction with each member to ensure a support worker is employed that will effectively communicate, support and assist you to achieve your goals and aspirations. As each individual is unique our HR team strives to match personality, personal needs and care requirements with those of new support workers.
Depending on funding resources available, Elba is able to provide support where and whenever it is required.
