Every young persons deserves the opportunity to explore their creative side.  Supreme Care works with young adults who have disabilities, helping them find ways to express themselves through high-quality artwork.  Our professional staff is skilled at bringing out the best of each individual’s ability. At Supreme Care, young people have a choice of pursuing a balance of art, social, personal development and work activities, including pursuing arts as their chosen vocation.

Artistic expression is a powerful outlet for personal and social development. Supreme Care artist’s program encourages people with disabilities to participate in activities that develop and enhance their artistic talents.  We offer programs for adults with all sort of disabilities including intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), autism spectrum disorder, and traumatic brain injury.  Clients are supported at the level they need, including using adaptive equipment to allow full participation in mixed media arts.

 

COMMUNITY EXPLORATION

ENGAGED.  WELCOMED.  INCLUDED.

Community exploration  for young adults with disabilities.

Getting out into the world is healthy for the mind and spirit. Our staff supports community exploration for young adults with  disabilities by helping them learn and practice the social, safety and life skills necessary to be successful in community life. Supreme Care helps young adults with disabilities become active members of the community.  Staff members focus on individual needs, working with clients to develop the specific skills they need to participate in recreational and other activities, such as bowling, shopping, and attending community events and theater performances.

At  Supreme Care, we believe that being involved in the community promotes independence and enhances the quality of life for people with disabilities.  Our highly trained staff members teach clients how to participate in activities and events that help them integrate with others in the local community. Our day programs and services prepare clients to participate in activities that develop their social skills and promote inclusion in community life. We provide opportunities to develop relationships both inside and outside of Supreme Care,  so that clients can learn, practice and apply life skills that promote greater independence.

   

COMMUNITY REGISTERED NURSE

Right Amount.  Right Time.  Right Service.

Health management and medication administration services for young adults with disabilities.

For young people with disabilities, health support services, including medication administration, requires careful management. Families and guardians want to make sure that when their loved one’s medication and health management needs are met, especially when they go out to attend training programs, job training or recreational  programs.  Supreme Care has Registered Nurses  and staff trained to assist in health management for young adults with disabilities including  intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), autism spectrum disorder and traumatic brain injury with medication administration and other care services, such as g-tube feedings, wound management and seizure care.

We believes it is essential for clients in our  programs for adults with disabilities to function at their best, whether it is on the job or in recreation related activities. We are proud of our record of providing quality care that focuses on each client’s medication management and daily needs.Supreme Care has  Registered Nurses Consultant   available 24/7, 365 days a year .

Additionally, other staff members at  Supreme Care are trained in important health and safety protocols, including medication administration, first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, g-tube feeding and seizure care. We work closely with families, guardians and case managers to stay up-to-date on each client’s current status so our staff can adapt our services when a client’s needs change.

 

Recreation

Exciting.  Fulfilling.  Fun.

Recreation activities for young adults with disabilities.

 

All of us like to bond with peers around our common interests, and this is especially true of young adults. It  is essential to be conscious of a young adult’s needs for direct support and to know when to back off. Too much support, particularly by an adult, can create barriers. The young person  may not learn what is needed in the setting or activity. And others may not feel compelled get involved or learn how to help the young person grow.

Hobbies and recreational activities help young adults with disabilities develop their problem-solving skills, learn responsibility, and increase self esteem, all while having fun and making friends.  Nursing Services of Australia staff supports people with disabilities in their pursuit of finding recreational activities for a well rounded, fulfilling life.  We offer a wide array of recreational choices.  So, whether young people in our programs decide to join a yoga group, try geocaching, or go bowling with friends, we provide an experience that is new, exciting and fun.

Maintaining daily living skills are important to a good quality of life, especially for  people with disabilities.  Supreme Care helps clients develop, maintain and increase their daily living and self-help skills as they age.  We offer sensory experiences to promote learning new skills and reinforce previously acquired skills.

Young adults, adults and seniors in our day training and activity programs are involved in a wide range of activities, including gardening, cooking, yoga, exercise and fitness, health and wellness, men’s and women’s social groups, bowling and community outings, volunteerism and self-advocacy.

 

Transition services

Assessment.  Goals.  Confidence.

Transition services for young adults with disabilities entering adulthood.

 

Graduating from school is an important milestone in life for young adults with disabilities.  Adjusting from a school setting to adult life can be exciting and scary at the same time, but it is easier with a good plan.

Supreme Care provides transition services for young adults with developmental disabilities including intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder and traumatic brain injury that are graduating from school and entering adult services.

 To support a smooth transition into adult services, We work with the schools during a student’s last year to develop an individualised plan to meet that person’s needs.

The last year of school passes quickly, so it is important to plan ahead. supreme Care encourages parents and caregivers to begin discussing “What comes next?” about a year before a student graduates. Engaging Supreme Care early in the transition planning and throughout the decision making process is important so we can:

  • Meet the  individual, family/guardians
  • Meet the student in the school setting
  • Assist the student’s team with transition planning as part of the educational process
  • Work with the school to develop a transition plan that addresses specific individual needs and goals

Our staff works collaboratively with support teams so that from their first day you enter our care, you experience a smooth, comfortable transition. Our staff members coordinate with parents, secondary schools, and/or other providers to develop a transition plan tailored to each client’s specific needs. During this process, staff members spend time in the classroom or in the community  with the referred individual to assess the services desired and what supports are needed when a person enters Supreme Care. We want every transition to be a success.

 

Skills Acquisition Classes

Flexibility.  Personal Growth.  Independence.

Life skills training for young adults with disabilities.

Learning new skills for fun or to get a job can be exciting and rewarding. Supreme Care offers opportunities for young adults with disabilities to participate in life skills training through a variety of activities.  Our staff offers support and assistance when needed, while allowing young people in our day training and  programs plenty of opportunities for personal growth.

At Supreme Care, we believe it is important for people with disabilities to be involved in activities that make sense for them.  The activities and levels of support We offer are based on the needs, interests and desires of each individual in our programs. We offer a structured environment with access to specialised support for people who have intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), autism spectrum disorder, and traumatic brain injury.

Our goal is to help individuals enjoy a full, well-rounded life.  We offer classes to teach the skills people with disabilities need to be engaged in paid work.  We also provide opportunities to develop personal interests, both in community and on site by encouraging hobbies, like gardening and volunteering in the community.  Other classes focus on life skills training, such as:  social skills, self-help and daily living skills, self-advocacy, yoga, health and wellness, safety skills and problem solving.  Assistive technology and adaptive equipment is used to help those in our day programs for people with disabilities participate as fully as possible in the activities that interest them most

 

Volunteering

Caring.  Helping.  Sharing.

Community volunteer opportunities for young adults with autism and other disabilities.

Volunteer options for Young Adults with developmental disabilities  help young people develop social skills, work skills, life skills and make  friends.  AtSupreme Care, we recognise the importance of giving back to the community and the satisfaction that brings.  We connect young adults in our programs with volunteer options that match their interests and abilities. There are many ways persons with intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), autism spectrum disorder and traumatic brain injury can contribute to the quality of life in our community.  We are always happy to provide the support and staff coaching needed to help our volunteers give back, learn and thrive through their volunteer experiences.

Clients at Supreme Care give back to our community through a variety of volunteer roles, such as delivering meals on wheels, helping in elementary classrooms, making blankets for an animal shelter, and other activities.  We look for opportunities that match the interests, talents and special abilities of our volunteers. Supreme Care clients volunteering in the community are supported by highly-trained staff dedicated to helping them succeed in their chosen community service activities.
