Disability Care | In-Home Care
The Dignified Movement is all about providing support services the way you want them. Our services are dedicated and passionate about giving you exactly what you need and want.
It’s crucial to select the best provider. Navigating the NDIS landscape for the right provider can be an overwhelming process. You need a NDIS provider who will pay attention to and hear you, a service provider that takes the time to put together a care team that best fits your family’s lifestyle, whether you require additional assistance or round-the-clock care.
We put a lot of effort into ensuring that we provide quality, individualised care, ensuring that our clients feel heard, are treated with decency and respect, and feel assured that their future needs are in good hands. We take the time to develop a thorough understanding of the special requirements of our clients before providing the services that are best suited to their demands as well as the preferences and objectives of the family.
We know everyone is unique, a wonderful aspect of being human.
At Dignified, we take the time to hear what you have to say and deliver a program to focus on your specific requirements and to concentrate on your needs. Our support staff and support managers are committed to helping you with your standard of living, improve your existing situation, and enhance the quality of your daily life.

Housing Accommodation Options
Home isn’t a place; it’s an emotion, according to Dignified Disability Care, so your house should reflect who you are and be filled with the things you love.
Dignified can help you determine what style of housing accommodation options suit your needs. We can assist you in understanding your options, whether it be Supported Independent Living, Specialised Disability Accommodation, Short Term Accommodation, or even how we can find the right accommodation in the rental, Department of Housing space.

Individual Living Options (ILO) are living arrangements that focus on the individual. They consist of choices for living alone, co-residency, host arrangements, and cohabitation options. ILO is an alternative to group home services.
What is the difference between SIL & ILO?
“ILO (Individualised Living Options) include at least six hours of support per day and can be up to 24 hours of daily support. SIL (Supported Independent Living) are living arrangements with rostered support staff and 24/7 paid support.” NDIS

Being active and engaging with your community is important for well-being. Social and community participation is about meeting people with similar interests and joining in social and community activities. It means going where others go, doing what others do, being with other people and choosing activities you enjoy. Social and community participation can also mean different things to different people. At Dignified Disability Care we can provide you with supports to help you achieve your goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle including:
- connecting you with your community
