Did you make breakfast or pack your lunch? We call this Mealtime preparation
Did you do the washing up, put a load of washing on, vacuum the floors? We call this domestic support
Did you go to the toilet, have a shower or bath? We call this Personal Care
Did you drive, catch public transport or a taxi to work? We call this Transportation
What did you do to get ready for your day? Pick out your clothes, have a shower, blow dry your hair, brush your teeth? We call this Personal support
Did you take any medication or vitamins today? We call this Medication Administration
Did your organise anything today? Lunch with friends, dentist appointment, a holiday! We call this Individualised support
These are but a few of the activities a Disability Support Practitioners might do in a day… it doesn’t stop there though, there are so many other things we do that encourage, support and enable people with a disability to live their life their way.
