We spoke with Dilushi Fonseka one of our Disability Intake and Engagement Consultants, about why she loves her role.
Why do you love working with clients?
Being involved in creating a safe environment where people we support are empowered to live a life that is as independent as possible, and one that helps them reach their goals and maximum potential is something beyond a job. The satisfaction I get in knowing that I have made a difference to someone in need is beyond measure.
What can NDIS participants expect when they are looking for a new service provider?
NDIS is about choice and control; therefore, participants should look for a provider that could can provide supports tailored to their individual needs and circumstances. They should also look for a provider that follows national disability standards and employs suitably qualified support workers for the job. Most importantly, participants should choose a provider with a strong commitment to policies to ensure quality and safeguards.
How is HenderCare different?
HenderCare offers a wide range of services such as clinical care, disability supports, allied health, psychosocial supports and behavioural supports. This allows clients to receive a variety of services under one umbrella, which creates a flexible and compatible ecosystem around their supports. HenderCare employees go through a carefully considered selection criteria process to ensure they have the right skills, attributes and passion for making a difference in the disability sector.
