Hear firsthand from one of our fantastic carers, Sarah, as she shares a glimpse into her day working at Prestige:

"My role as a Disability Support Worker begins at around 8 or 9 AM. I start by visiting my first client of the day and assisting them in getting ready for the day. Collaboration with my client is key as we work together to address their specific needs while ensuring they maintain control over their world. In addition to helping with their personal care routine, I might also take care of tasks like making the bed, tidying the bathroom, and assisting in breakfast preparation. My primary goal is to identify ways to make their day more comfortable while respecting and supporting their choices. If the weather is suitable, we may even take a walk to pick up the newspaper.

By 11 AM, I'm off to my next client. This particular client requires the assistance of two caregivers to help them get out of bed in the morning. I meet the second caregiver at the client's home, and together, we use a hoist to facilitate the client's shower and prepare them for the day. Once our tasks are complete, we ensure the bathroom is cleaned, and that the client is comfortably settled with everything they need within easy reach.

After lunch, I visit my last client of the day, which typically involves a longer service. During this time, I take my client to the gym for hydrotherapy. Since they are in a wheelchair, I provide support as we use a taxi to reach the pool. I work alongside the instructor to assist my client in transitioning from their wheelchair into the pool, providing encouragement from the sidelines as they complete their exercises. Following the session, I help my client transfer back into the wheelchair, assist with drying and dressing, and accompany them back home. Once home, I prepare a meal for them and take care of some light domestic tasks to ensure their environment is comfortable."
