We (Matt Mears and Cam Garland) created Prydes Support with Tiffany Ridler as we saw too many disability support providers who only saw their participants as paycheques. One really frustrating day of this we were saying we wish there was something that we could do to make a difference... Thus, Prydes Support was born. We provide the best possible care to our participants and staff by listening to their requests and going the extra mile to honour them and if for some reason it isn't possible, we will do everything in our power to get the next best thing. Prydes Support does not discriminate on anything.
We are a national disability support business with connections to multiple service providers. Reach out so we can give you a hand. At this stage, we are currently an unregistered provider and are unfortunately only able to accept payment from plan managed or self-funded individuals.
Social Connection: Social connections matter, building and maintaining strong relationships with family and friends helps us to feel happier, secure and give us a sense of purpose. People who feel more connected to others have lower levels of anxiety, depression, and higher self-esteem. Your Prydes Support worker is here to help you attend activities and events that spark your interests, ensuring your community access is delivered safely.
In-Home Care: Prydes Support staff can assist you to keep your home how you like it. They can assist you with laundry, meal preparation, ironing, changing sheets, mopping floors, gardening, and more. For more intensive cleaning Prydes Support can arrange for a professional cleaner to assist.
Personal Care: Our kind, respectful and sensitive staff will assist you with any personal care you require. They can assist with showering, toileting, dressing, grooming, and any other daily activities to maintain your comfort, dignity, and privacy.
Life Skills: Our friendly staff will assist you to achieve your goals and to maintain your independent living. Whether you want to learn how to prepare meals, read, write, paint and much more.
Exercise & Fitness: Exercise and fitness can be performed in many ways, from going to the gym to going for a walk around the block. Your Prydes Support worker will be there to take you to any activity. Prydes Support offers weekly activities for all participants and staff to attend.
STA & Travel: Do you want to explore different locations in this big wide world? To support your independent living your support worker will take you, you might like to go to the beach, out for a coffee, or take a holiday.
Work and Study: Do you work or study? Or would you like to be? Even if you are unsure about what you would want to do, your support coordinator can help. Your support worker can help by assisting you to be ready for your day of work or study, can take you and stay with you for the day
Respite: We understand the importance of taking time for yourself to rest and recover. Prydes Support offers short (a few hours of care) or longer (overnight to a few days) respite. Short term accommodation (STA) can be arranged at regular intervals or we can arrange emergency accommodation if required.
