Family Support Services

Our Family Support Service provides a wide range of flexible support to assist people with disability, families and carers living in the community. The primary aim of the Family Support Service is to build and enhance family well-being and strengthen family, carer and community relationships.

These supports are offered in a number of different ways including in-home support, community participation, respite, assistance with key life stages (e.g. leaving school, thinking about work); the options are endless.

As a result of these flexible measures, individuals and their families or carers should be enabled to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Existing and new relationships, community connections and support networks are developed and enhanced;
  • Individual and family/carer capacity are strengthened to promote and maintain a positive home environment;
  • Independence of a person with a disability is facilitated, maintained and enhanced;
  • Individuals, families and/or carers engage in community activities that are appropriate for the life course of the person with a disability, reflecting their personal and cultural identity; and
  • Access to and inclusion in the community is increased.

Midway Community Care will tailor this service to an individual family’s needs. Support may include someone coming into your home to provide personal care or providing opportunities for community inclusion and socialisation.

This main goal of the program is to assist people with disabilities to remain with their family and provides families with a break from their caring role.
