Complex Care Needs for Children
Caring for a child with complex needs can be overwhelming, as there are often multiple conditions for caregivers to manage. Your child may require lots of different services, such as physical assistance with getting ready in the morning, medication management, feeding and toileting, and help with attending school. This can cause stress for the whole family, especially if you don’t have the right support behind you.
Home Caring provides quality support for children with complex disability care needs, in the comfort of their own home. As a registered NDIS provider, we’ll help your child achieve an independent and happy life through specialised care, assistance with daily living, support for parents, and opportunities to learn skills. This helps families stay together, and enables you to build your parenting capacity and confidence.
