Independent living skills in Maitland NSW
There are many skills that help us grow, maintain and lead independent lives. One of the ways ConnectAbility Australia helps people with disabilities to live independently is through the development of independent living skills.
Independent living skills essentially involve problem solving and taking responsibility for daily tasks. Learning these skills builds self-confidence and leads to more opportunities to live a more self-reliant life.
ConnectAbility Australia is registered through the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to provide Coordination of Support to help consumers in Maitland learn basic skills for a more independent lifestyle. These independent living skills include:
- Goal setting
- Communication skills
- Personal hygiene
- Personal safety
- Maintaining cleanliness in the home
- Transport and travel
- Referrals to other resources
Independent living means having the right to make decisions for one’s own life. By assisting customers in managing the challenges of daily life through a range of training and development activities, participants can build their capacity to manage day‐to‐day life through the development of their knowledge, skills and network of support.
