What distinguishes Connected Inc for our clients and their families?
Our clients really are Number One with us. There are several ways you will see us implement this Principle:
- All NDIS Connected Inc staff are committed to the vision and the aims as stated within the Convention on the rights of Persons with Disabilities, the NDIS Practice Standards and the NDIS Code of Conduct, and all other legislation that protects the rights of persons with disabilities.
- All NDIS Connected Inc staff are committed to our own Connected Inc NDIS Disability Services vision and high ethical standards. We understand that our Clients and families are placing their trust in us to do the very best for them, and that they are:
- Paying us to enthusiastically support them to meet their goals. Goals that will bring them joy, experiences, belonging, meaning, connection … life.
- Paying us to support them to care for their bodies when they can’t, with respect and empathy whilst always maintaining their dignity.
- Paying us to support them to understand and keep safe in the outside world that presents unique challenges, but also provides connection and inclusion.
- Paying us to support them to emotionally cope with the unique challenges that is their experience in, and outside of their bodies.
- Paying us to support them through teaching and empowering wherever possible.
- Paying us to support them to the very best of our ability every moment we are with them.
All Staff sign on to these principles along with the Codes of Conduct and Confidentiality Agreement upon joining Connected Inc.
- Before any of our staff work with our Clients, we will arrange a “Meet and Greet” for the Client (cost free), and family if desired, and decide together whether this will be a good working relationship. No unknown faces will greet you at the door.
- If the relationship between the Client and our Support Worker is a positive, professional and empowering relationship for the participant, that staff member will be the Support Worker for each and every shift for 12 months (allowing for sick & annual leave) unless a review is requested by the Client or Connected Inc. This creates the rapport and trust that allows for a gentler time during personal care, a lessening of the Client’s anxiety in the community, greater opportunities for skill development and importantly, opportunities for connection and laughter.
- Our Disability Support Workers are supported by the Disability Services Manager to actively participate in Continual Improvement and Professional Development and are of the highest ethical standard.
We look forward to being of service!
