Host Provider Model

Anglicare SQ My Care My Way operates a strengths based model of customer service delivery that enables people with a disability, and/or their family, to have choice and independence in determining the disability supports and services they need, using the following guiding principles:

  • We build trust and inspire hope in the lives of people we work with.
  • People are at the centre of everything we do.
  • We recognise each person’s gifts as a foundation for working together.
  • We are authentic and up front when we talk with people about the quality, cost and availability of services.
  • We listen when people tell us how we can change and improve the way we work with them.

My Care My Way provides for the full spectrum of choice for individuals.

  • You, and/or your family, may choose to be fully responsible for all aspects of chosen services and supports, including the employment of staff and the payment of invoices.
  • You, and/or your family, may choose to be fully responsible for some aspects of chosen services and supports (e.g. employing staff) while requesting the Host Provider to take responsibility for other aspects (e.g. payment of invoices).
  • You, and/or your family, may choose to take on only a small amount of responsibility while requesting the Host Provider to be responsible for organising all fiscal payments, employment matters, etc. as directed by the agreed plan.
    Where ever you choose to be on the spectrum it is based on your decision and your choice, with the full flexibility to change as you require.
    My Care My Way staff are experienced Case Managers with highly developed interpersonal and motivational interviewing skills, and use a strengths based, person centred approach to supports planning and goal setting.
