Eagle Community Care (ECC) was founded originally in 2017 in Warrimoo (“Place of Eagles”) in the NSW Blue Mountains as a sole trader personal in-home Community Services provider within the NDIS funding framework. This was using experience and qualifications gained since 2009 while working in the public and private Community Services sector in positions as a Community, Disability, and Mental Health peer support worker.
Services provided in the NSW Central West, based around Bathurst, are in-home personalised disability, community, and mental health peer support:
- All aspects of personal care including hygiene, feeding, manual handling.
- Daily living activities including house care, shopping, meal preparation.
- Community access including transport, accessibility, social interaction.
- Personal and systemic advocacy, peer mentoring in strategies in independent living.
- Specialising in but not limited to Autism support.
Special flat rate of $45 per shift hour, plus $0.40 vehicle charge per km of all travel including transportation.
These services are driven by a lived past personal experience of disability challenges, and informed by the Recovery framework.
Monte Christo (MC) is a project by ECC for a transition to Community-oriented market gardening and regenerative farming on permaculture principles, beginning in 2022.
Experience and qualifications:
I have experience since 2009 mainly working in ADHC group homes for people with profound Autism and Neurodevelopmental Delay, Aquired Brain Injury, psychosocial and physical disabilities as well as positions in Community and Mental Health support and casework.
The foundations upon which I build my work are my formal practical training, work experience, and theoretical academic background learning in this sector.
I also have skills and understanding acquired from many years of previous personal life experience of Autism with Psychosocial Disability challenges and the Recovery process, as a peer and consumer self-managing their recovery.
