We are well-equipped to work with the diverse community we support. As a result, we show a high level of understanding and accommodate the unique care needs and interests of individuals using our service.

We as a team strive towards achieving plan and therapy-based goals in everyday living environments. Teamwork is important to us: we are very much in support of forming therapeutic partnerships in order to support people in constructive ways under professional guidance.

To overcome some of the barriers of the remote style of work we do, team members utilise a professional platform to communicate with other staff within individual care teams to ensure confidential, consistent, quality ongoing care.

All of our services below can be tailored to peoples’ requirements, needs, and preferences. Our staff follow the guidance of the care team professionals and work within this structure where possible to deliver a therapeutic-based unified approach.

Our policies and prices are based upon the NDIS pricing arrangement for self and plan-managed people.  We also offer support through Aged Care packages. The Nest has some accessibility modifications so access for program use and respite is possible but due to stairs, cannot offer fully accessible accommodation.
