Advocate for your person starts 5 Feb ’19

It is time to move to a ‘team management’ approach when caring for our daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, or significant other. It’s time to develop skills to work with organisations, set & achieve goals, and create everyday environments that add value to the lives of your loved ones.

Everyday we question the balance of unpacking organisational goals; interests and obligations verses loved ones goals, interests and preferences. 

It’s time to co-manage with your provider, co-direct with the support workers, and govern outcomes with your loved one.

Arrangement options could include:

  • In what ways do participants in group homes have a say about the what clothes they wear?
  • Or what food they eat (and when)?
  • Or who their support workers are?
  • To what extent do they have ready access to the fridge and pantry?
  • How do they determine when to get up and when to go to bed?
  • Creating supports for “out of the box” results

These are just the tip of the options iceberg.

Training goals include:

  • Constructive dialogue, finding ways to create win, win outcomes
  • Understanding others’ point of views, working together to see change
  • Team work, achieving common goals and completing tasks
  • Maximising the funding dollar, costs, goals and balancing the books
  • Reflection & outcomes
