  • Manage complex activities at home like managing finances, budgeting and paperwork
  • Develop and maintain a daily and weekly structure which promotes well-being (including monitoring health, meal planning and engaging in exercise).

General Duties:

  • Support clients with acquired brain injuries to maximise or maintain their autonomy and independence in their home environment and their community
  • Assist clients to plan and organise their daily activities including accompanying them to appointments with health and statutory care providers.
  • Support clients to access the community: including educational, social, leisure, physical and vocational activities.
  • Support clients to develop and maintain a daily and weekly structure which promotes their wellbeing (this may include helping them to monitor their health, helping them with budgeting, meal planning, engaging in exercise, and participation in activities in the community)
