In Home Disability Support
We believe that people with a disability should have the same rights as others and to live their life in the comfort of their own home. Being able to remain living in your own home has many benefits. For example, it’s easier to stay socially connected with family and friends and living in familiar surrounds gives you the confidence to take control of your life and live the way you want to. In home support provides families and carers with a temporary break from the responsibilities of caring for a person with a disability and a break from routine. Many families regard in home support as the most important support in maintaining the family unit.
As a registered NDIS Service Provider, we ensure that our client-centered, diverse range of in-home disability support assists to increase your independence, maintain your well-being and helps you pursue your goals.

Community participation is a basic fundamental for all people, including people with a disability. It can lead to improved wellbeing outcomes surrounding health, employment, education, income and life satisfaction. Additionally, it can lead to an improvement in the behaviour, attitude and self-confidence of people with a disability, as well as their family and carers.

"Platinum Care Services was initially recommended to me 12 months ago for their experienced, individualised and nurturing approach. I was assigned three support workers, each with different attributes and skill sets, which illustrated Platinum’s ability to provide professional, diverse, well matched support for each of their clients."
"From my first contact with Platinum Care Services Manager, Kevin Philippa, his warm friendliness impressed me. He organised a support worker with a passion to care and encourage me. I can't think of a better match. This Support Worker is now a friend and much appreciated. I give Platinum Care Services 10 out of 10!"
