Support Worker

Some clients require a support worker to assist them with some parts of their jobs. Depending on the nature and the severity of disability and the type of work being done, a greater or lesser amount of support time may be required. Better assessment of support worker needs can enable a client to work more effectively, can increase client independence and can reduce support costs.

By looking in detail at the tasks to be undertaken in doing the job and by identifying which tasks or parts of tasks are made more difficult or are impossible due to the client’s disability, it is possible to make a more accurate judgment as to the amount and extent of support needed.
