People with disabilities are extremely vulnerable to disaster (natural or man-made) for many reasons. Having a Disaster Preparedness Plan in place will minimise any likely difficulties that may arise as a result. Service providers need to also ensure that they are prepared for any eventuality by having a Business Continuity Plan in place. An informed plan will assist greatly in ensuring that services to participants are minimally impacted during these periods. It is anticipated that at the end of this series of workshops, participants will be able to complete their Person-Centred Emergency Preparedness Workbook and disability support providers, have their business continuity plans in place. The workshops will be held in two formats:

  • For participants, coordinators, personal carers, service providers

121 Care’s approach gives people real choice of how much responsibility and control they want to take for their own care plan. I first became involved with 121 Care as a Committee member, but soon was so impressed with the model of listening and insistence on client input that I changed from my previous service provider to 121 Care.

The biggest benefits with 121 Care are choosing my own carers (I have a fantastic team); the flexibility to run my own roster and organise my shifts with my carers has been awesome. The office staff are very respectful and helpful when I need something. I never feel like I’m a number, but a person which matters to me a lot.

What I’m grateful for most about getting my support through 121 Care is that I can stay in my own home. The staff members also help me to achieve my goals and offer paid training to our carers to become better workers.

I appreciated that 121 Care gave me control, rather than telling me what to do. The freedom to interview and choose my own workers is what I like most about my care, rather than being allocated workers without any consultation. It was made clear to me from the start that I would run my own care with my own workers.
