Organisational Information

Ablecare has been providing therapy and disability services to children and adults since 1996. Services include:

  • Allied health and therapy services
  • In home and accommodation support
  • Case management and disability support services

In 2006 The Ablecare foundation created a care management system that allowed an integrated E-Care approach to guide the systems that would enable people to direct their own support arrangements utilising the internet and a range of mobile technologies. Additional information is available on our website.

Host Provider Model

Individuals set their own goals, create their service plans, choose service providers and direct and manage their workers. We provide access to local area co-ordinators and case managers with qualifications from social work to therapy services backgrounds to support you to self direct your care. We help you to choose and link to the service provider of your choice.

You are allocated a case manager and local area co-ordinator (LAC) who develop and review the plan and budget with you. We assist to establish and develop local area partnerships and networks with service providers. We support you through planning activities, peer support networks and provide service user and family training opportunities.

Each individual receives personalised access to the CMS-YLYC online care system to allow them to control and create a personalised health and service record that includes budgeting and reporting systems. More information on care and support options is available on our website.

  • You choose the service provider and services of your choice
  • Access to an advanced Client E-Record System for planning, managing and creating care plans , educational, therapy, medical records and carer management.
  • Creative and innovative solutions and assistance with risk management and safeguards for you.
  • Flexibility to change your plan as your needs change – we can provide as little or as much support as you need. Your Choices…Your Life…..Our Support.
