Disability care services during COVID-19

At Shine Social and Communities, we help you secure continuous care for your loved ones amidst the pandemic.

When COVID-19 struck, all of our lives took an unexpected turn. For those who needed support like disability access and disability care, however, the impact was much more heightened. 

Here at Shine Social and Communities, we know the necessity of having adequate and inclusive disability care during the pandemic and are ready to provide you with a litany of services for hands-on disability care, to cover the diverse needs of your loved ones. 

Changing lifestyles, added responsibilities, and limited medical and care resources have always affected disabled communities disproportionately. 

This is why we want to help you bridge the gap with our continuous disability support services and resources during these unprecedented times.

FAQs

What do disability services provide?

Disability services include giving members of the disabled community access to healthcare, specific surgical and medical aids, prescribed drugs, accommodation, and support services for independent living.

In addition to this, they also provide community care services and access to recreational and relaxation activities.

Which disability services are available in Australia?

The Australian Department of Social Services has initiated several programmes and services that accommodate and support this community. That includes funding programmes like Disability Support Pension.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides aged care, child protection, mental health support, accommodation in employment, transport, and education, as well as legal support.

Which public health and safety guidelines do care providers follow?

Care providers need to practice basic health protocols against COVID-19 to reduce the risk of contact with their patients.

The World Health Organisation's mental health considerations also include guidelines for caregivers on managing non-communicable diseases during the pandemic. 

Caregivers are also instructed to encourage institutionalised patients, and those under lockdown including children, to socialise via calls, social media, and text messaging, and provide resources as required.

How does Shine Social and Communities provide disability support during COVID-19?

Our programmes and services continue to support the community we are dedicated to. 

Due to the fluctuating health conditions across the globe, however, certain community activities may be limited to adhere with protocols such as social distancing.
