Disability Services

Disability Services at Latrobe Community Health Services

 

Disability Services provides an information and referral service.  We can assist you in planning your future support needs including transitional periods in your life such as leaving school or moving out of home. We support carers to receive respite so they can continue to provide the best possible care. We understand that independence is your ultimate goal with you being in control of your life at all stages.

Partnership

The word ‘partnership’ best describes the relationship between you and Disability Services. Our support is self-directed which puts you in the driver’s seat of decision making regarding all aspects of your life including your care and support needs. We will assist you to navigate the ‘system’ so you can reach your goals. For more information on self-directed care follow this link -  A self-directed approach to supporting people with a disability in Victoria.

 

Your supports

Along this journey you may wish to involve your closest allies, those people who care and support your goals. Supporting unpaid carers and family members is important to us. For more information on the invaluable role carers play follow this link - Carers Victoria
