We support people whose lives are affected by a disability, to achieve their goal, retain their independence and self reliance, and to enjoy optimum quality of life wherever they live.
Support Works provides assessment for people with health and disability needs in order to maximise their independence and full participation in the community.
The assessment / service coordination process identifies, plans and reviews packages of support that meet the prioritised needs and goals of the person.
A needs assessment is the first step in identifying what help you need to manage as independently as possible. The Needs Assessor will meet with you, your family/whanau (if appropriate) and anyone else you may wish to have present (for example, a support person), and will identify the areas in which you need. This meeting will take place somewhere that is comfortable for you – usually your own home. The assessment will help identify areas of support to maintain your independence. The agreed areas of where support can be provided will be jointly identified in a plan with you.
We are here to listen to what you need and to work with you to get the right supports. We are ready and available to talk to you to answer any of your questions or concerns.
