WHAT WE DO
Dahlia Care have a wide variety of services and by discussing your priorities with them, we can put together a plan that ensures your needs are met.
HOW WE DO IT
Like a good pair of shoes or a tailored suit, there is nothing quite like
finding that perfect fit!
Dahlia Care start all of their relationships by asking basic, but pertinent questions. In an emergency sometimes that is all there is time for!
From these initial conversations we are able to ascertain the 'must have',
the important wants and the 'would be nice'.
Dahlia Care can then work with you about the type of funding you may
have in place, how to apply for funding, or if you are self-funding,
what is your budget. From this a detailed care plan can be produced.
This care plan is a collaboration between you and Dahlia Care, you have
the final say and we will ensure your expectations are managed and met.
WHO ARE WE?
Being a carer is a vocation, it takes a very special type of person to be a great care giver. Dahlia Care know that you and your families are doing the best you can and we want to enhance the support you already may have in place.
The Dahlia Care team are chosen not just because they meet the minimum qualification needs, but also because they have that 'x-factor', the special ingredient that makes Dahlia Care different.
We recognise that our team do not always have an easy job and often having care in the home is the last thing our clients want, because of this Dahlia Care like to match our clients and carers.
This can be done through common interests, cultural backgrounds, sometimes that spark can come from a sport both parties enjoy. It is important that our clients feel like they have had a 'visit' rather than a 'service' and our staff have a great day at work.
Dahlia Care are able to facilitate visits for NDIS clients who are either Plan Managed or Self-Managed. We have extensive experience in forming care plans that incorporate the various different entitlements within your plan.
