Assistance with Daily Life (ADL)

Afford is one of Australia’s most experienced disability service providers offering Assistance with Daily Life (ADL) supports for your everyday tasks and personal care.

We make sure your experience with Afford is a good one. This means working closely with you and your family or support people to make sure we understand your needs and assisted living goals.

“Having the change of being able to go out and have the support to help me, one hundred percent life changing.”


What is Assistance with Daily Life (ADL)?

ADL supports are designed to see you live as independently as possible in your own home and community. These supports can include:

  • Personal care – taking medication, showering, and dressing.
  • Housework – cleaning, gardening, and cooking.
  • Social and community activities – shopping, paying bills and catching public transport.

ADL supports at Afford

An experienced Afford disability support worker can provide one-on-one ADL supports in the way that suits you best which can be in your own home, in the community, or in a Supported Independent Living (SIL) house.

We work with you to make sure our disability supports meet your needs and help you achieve your goals.

It is ok if your needs change over time. For example, in the beginning you might want a lot of support with cooking your favourite meal. But, over time as you practice cooking the meal, you might need less support. You might just want supervision (someone being with you to make sure you’re doing something correctly or safely).

We will listen and support you the way you want and need so you can live more independently.

Self-funded and Fee for Service Packages

You do not have to have government-approved funding packages, such as NDIS to access our disability supports and services.

Self-funded is a way for you to pay for services with your own money. This option provides flexibility to access the supports you need if you have a one-off request, or if your government funding package does not cover what you need. You can also self-fund supports while you wait for approval of a funding package.

Fee for Service Packages are also available for people who are self-funded and would like to access our range of disability services.

Contact us to explore your funding options.

NDIS funding information (including eligibility criteria)

There are two types of NDIS funding that you can access for home and living Assistance with Daily Life Supports.

  1. Assistance with Social and Community Participation is part of your Core Support budget.
  2. Assistance with personal and self-care activities.

Your NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) can help you work out the funding requirements. You might talk about your home and living goals as part of your planning conversation, or your NDIS planner or LAC might do a NDIS home and living assessment.
