Daily living support

Daily living support is many things to many people.

We provide you with a professional Direct Support Worker (DSW) in the location that best meets your needs, for example:

  • In your home with personal care assistance, general care or respite, support with home based study
  • In the community, where you need it such as at a sporting event, university, the movies or even a festival

Ultimately daily living support is about helping you out when you need it the most. It helps to:

  • enable you to pursue your goals and aspirations
  • provide essential personal care assistance
  • support carers and families to find life balance
  • make sure the fun things in life can be accessed and enjoyed

Support is available across Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, the Gold Coast, Ipswich and Toowoomba.

All members of our team are experienced, reliable and professional. At Montrose we understand the importance of a good match, our Direct Support Coordinator work with you to ensure we find the right DSW for you.

Your DSW will have current First Aid & CPR certificates, Manual Handling and Child Protection training, appropriate insurances and the backing of an organisation that has been supporting people for over 80 years.

Prices start from $45.38 per hour, with a two hour minimum engagement. For more information please contact our Direct Support Coordinator on 1800 193 362.

 

Independent living

For any young person, leaving home is a big step towards independence. Montrose is assisting young adults with a disability to make that step through innovative housing located in Fitzgibbon Chase on Brisbane’s north side.

Two 3-bedroom homes with a 24/7 coordinator and support staff provide a great opportunity for the residents to realise their dreams and aspirations by:

  • Transitioning from life in the family home to supported independent life
  • Empowering them through independent, personal decision making
  • Helping them achieve personal goals such as studying, working or volunteering
  • Providing the opportunity to socialise with friends
