Goal Mastery

Your life. Your way. Your choice.

 

Individual plans

Each resident has a Person Centred Plan (PCP). This plan provides carers with the following information about a client:

A sense of their history

What is important to them

What they enjoy and dislike

How they wish to be supported

A list of their life goals

From this information SASI staff develop a tailored support plan defining specific goals each client wants to achieve.

The homes are located in:

Aspendale

Cheltenham

Frankston

Mordialloc

Springvale

Langwarrin

Two or three disability support staff are on hand in each home to provide individualised support on a 24/7 basis.

Staff actively encourage residents to participate in all aspects of life, to the best of their ability. For example, the resident who selects the evening menu will help prepare the meal.

Every attempt is made to engage residents in daily activities. These small steps build confidence, improve communication and enhance social skills. As a result clients learn to live more independently and better manage their behaviour.

The plan identifies:

What strategies will be put in place

Who is responsible

How to demonstrate the achieved goals

Each plan is reviewed regularly to ensure that the individual’s goals, aspirations and needs are met.

Many residents regularly:

  • Visit family members
  • Attend family functions
  • Stay overnight with family
  • Go on family holidays
  • Enjoy group and individual recreation activities
  • Attend adult day programs of choice

Vacancies within accommodation services are managed by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) – Vacancy Management Process.

Activities

SASI’s approach is tailored to meet client needs. Residents are not made to fit SASI’s needs. Residents can access the community and maintain relationships with family and friends.
