We are always open for families to talk and seek help.
We work in partnership with Merri Health and Alfred Health to explore better services for families. We are proud to be a registered Carer Gateway provider, ensuring families and carers can get access to the supports they need.
Our staff are trained and skilled in ensuring our services minimise disruption and maximise independence and family life. We consider each person’s individual living circumstances and and the needs of your family.
Our specialist workforce delivers 24/7 supports in people’s homes. This may include active overnight support, morning assistance or a 2am mobile support visit for a turn or pressure care, that enables family life to maintain normal sleep routines.
Taking a holiday break can seem daunting and out of reach. We are proud to support many families to take a break, by providing in home support and care 24/7. You are the experts and we will work with you to design supports and ensure every detail is supported.
As you and your family plan the supports you need you might have a range of questions and need specific help to put in place the right approach. We are here to help.
Our approach to planning support provides intensive time for all family members and supporters to:
Working with you to try out and find creative and thoughtful solutions that ensure the best care can be tailored to your family’s life.
Nightlife is committed to caring for carers.
We acknowledge and value the vital contribution of families and carers.
Did you know families and carers contribute 77.9 billion to the Australian economy? That’s over 2.2 billion hours of informal care (Deloitte Access Economics, 2020).
Unfortunately for many families, caring can impact wellbeing and impact the ability to participate in work , study and maintain social connections. That’s why planning supports can be so important. You can include a carer impact statement as part of NDIS planning to ensure your needs are also included.
It may also be important to connect with other carers, take time out and have opportunities to learn about how to provide care. The National Carer Gateway offers links to counselling, support, respite and practical short term supports to ensure we care for carers.
Navigating supports can sometimes be a little confusing. If you are not sure what is best for your individual situation, we are here to answer any questions or queries. We also have opportunities for families and carers to get involved and take time out. For more information please phone us on 9532 5455 or make an enquiry.
