Our Social Workers are there to support you and your family. Social Work is available by referral – speak to one of your Montrose therapists if you require support.
Sometimes people living with a disability and their family members need help to cope with the challenges in their daily lives.
We can provide:
• Support for families working through a new diagnosis
• Confidential counselling and support for children and families
• Facilitating peer support and networking
• Consultation with other service providers
• Accessing community resources.
A social worker can assist you with the following things:
We provide access to confidential counselling and support for children and families in a number of areas. These areas include adjustment and change, loss and grief, self-esteem, stress management and coping strategies, parenting strategies, relationship issues.
Peer support is when people provide knowledge, experience, emotional, social or practical help to one other.
This might be anything from helping you to find support groups and other groups within your community who have had similar experiences to your own. Or it might mean helping you find a playground to suit the needs of your child. Whatever it is you need, we’ll help you find it.
Our social workers can help access community supports and resources that can assist you and your family.
Did you know Montrose Social Workers can support the whole family caring for a child with a disability? If your child is under seven years of age, social work support is available under the NDIS Early Childhood approach. At Montrose, this can include:
Our purpose has always been to provide people with disabilities with the best services possible. This will help us achieve that goal.
In the near future, when you visit Montrose.org.au, you'll be directed to our new website at Northcott.com.au.
You're bound to notice some changes… to our offices, our phone number, and even our uniforms and the way we work with you to achieve your goals.
Your therapist and services, our locations and the cost of your services will NOT change.
