3 Tips For Choosing The Best Disability Service

Looking for a disability service to support yourself or your loved ones is a big decision. Whether you require assistance with daily living, supported independent living, transportation, or community participation, you need a dependable support system that believes in your growth.

At Community Living Options Adelaide, we’ve been supporting our participants to have great opportunities and a great life for over 40 years. Here are some of the things we value that you should look for in a disability service too.


1. Experience in the Disability Support Industry

Providing disability support is about far more than offering the necessary services. Rather, it’s imperative that a support service is invested in your growth and understanding that support doesn’t look the same for everyone.

Experience plays a huge role in differentiating support for participants. Community Living Options was established in Victor Harbor in 1982 by a group of local parents who wanted respite and accommodation for their adult children. This experience has given us the opportunity to support people to thrive in their local communities and to live the life they choose. We now lead the way in disability, mental health and complex support needs.


2. A Diverse Team

A diverse team is essential to creating a basis for differentiating support. It’s important to find a service with staff trained in a variety of disabilities and with a variety of competencies.

Community Living Options has a dedicated clinical team that is made up of multidisciplinary professionals who have experience in many areas of support. The team use their experience and expertise to assist staff to provide quality support to participants with varying needs and complexities.


3. A Convenient Location

Finally, it’s important that your disability service provider is in a convenient location for you. This may mean that it’s close to your family, your home, or your other important obligations like work, appointments, or activities.

Community Living has two locations – one in Adelaide and one in the Fleurieu region- to offer you maximum flexibility for your support.


Exploring Your Disability Service Options

Whether you need support for yourself or for a loved one, we encourage you to do your research to find a disability service provider that’s right for you.
