Organisational Information

DJ Health has been supporting individuals with a disability and aged members of our community, their families and carers since 2003. We offer assistance in the areas of self-directed support, in-home care, post school services, aged care and community access. We currently manage supported accommodation group homes in the areas of Ashmore, Southport, Helensvale, Nerang, Oxenford, Upper Coomera, Pimpama, Kallangur, Rothwell and Kurwongbah.

Our services aim to assist people to live independently and engage within the community of their choice. All services have a person-centred approach acknowledging individual circumstances, resilience and are culturally sensitive.

DJ Health works in partnership with individuals, their families and their support networks to achieve good outcomes. Together we identify the needs and interests of the individual, supporting their choice and decision making when formulating service plans with tailored services required by the individual and their support person or stakeholders.

Host Provider Model

DJ Health model is designed around the needs, aspirations, goals and priorities of the person we support. As a host provider, we will empower you, together with your family and the wider community, to gain control over and have the ability to choose the support services you need to achieve these goals. In order to address each individual's unique circumstance and encourage control over the planning process DJ Health has a range of support options available to assist you.

Our individually tailored model is flexible and responsive, and we will work with you as your needs, circumstances and preferences change over time.
