Our Supports

Self-Care Activities

Personal care supports relate to assistance with daily personal activities including assistance with, or supervision of, personal tasks of daily life.


For example:

  • personal hygiene, including showering, bathing, oral hygiene, dressing and grooming;

  • attending appointments;

  • use of aids and appliances, hearing and communication devices;

Domestic Assistance

Domestic assistance will help you to work towards achieving your goals of remaining independent in your own home for longer, and ensure that you are supported to live safely within your home environment.


For example:

  • Cleaning and dusting your home.

  • Doing the laundry, hanging clothes and essential ironing.

  • Grocery shopping.

  • Planning, preparing and cooking meals that are delicious and healthy.

  • Small repairs around your home.

  • Doing the dishes.

Community Access

Social and community participation is about meeting people with similar interests and joining in social and community activities. It means going where others go, doing what others do, with other people and choosing activities you enjoy. Social and community participation also means different things to different people. It can include going to your local cafe, joining a netball team, bushwalking with a friend, doing a craft class, getting work experience, or volunteering.

Group Activities

Programs of Supports (Group Activities) are individualised for each participant, even where different participants are accessing the same activities.


Our sessions focus on: 

  • A sense of belonging and connection.

  • Deeper relationships with friends and family.

  • Larger social networks and reduced isolation .

  • Increased confidence, self-efficacy, and safety.

  • Increased opportunities for further community participation, employment or study.

Short Term Accommodation

Short Term Accommodation is support for when you need to live out of home for a short period. This gives your carers a short break from their caring role.

Sometimes a short stay away from home:

  • gives you the chance to try new things

  • can be a place to make new friends or develop new skills

  • may help to maintain your current living situation by giving your informal supports a break.

Short Term Accommodation includes:

  • personal care

  • accommodation

  • food

  • activities you and the provider agree to.

At Empowered Choices we are fortunate enough to own a premise that is used for Short Term Accomodation, or alternatively we can choose a destination from our approves list of towns/cities.

Skills & Development Training

By using an holistic approach and working with therapists, we are able to focus on building your capacity in a range of areas. This supports the development of you as a participant and ensures that you are actively working towards your goals.
