Colbrow Care provides (dis)ability support services for children and adults who have physical, sensory, or intellectual disabilities, children and adults injured in road traffic accidents, as well as adults injured in the workplace. For many Australians living with (dis)ability, in-home care and support allows them to live comfortably in their own home and actively participate within their community.
If you or a loved one is living with (dis)ability and need more support to continue living at home and doing the things you love, we can help. If you have sustained injuries either in a road traffic accident or whilst at work, we can provide the healthcare and support services you need to get back on track.
Our team of dedicated nurses, allied health professionals, and care workers are highly trained and hold qualifications in Disability Support Services and Home and Community Care.
Our service provision is client-centered and client-driven with your care always remaining at the heart of what we do. We place a strong emphasis on maintaining your privacy, earning your respect, and preserving your dignity. Our nurses and carers who provide (dis)ability support services are trained to also provide emotional and psychological support to clients and their families.
There are many government funding options available for accessing (dis)ability support in Australia, with some administered nationally and others at a State or Territory level. Each of the programs are designed to help people with different needs, lifestyles, and circumstances.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an uncapped, demand-driven scheme of the Australian Government that funds costs associated with (dis)ability. To be eligible for government funding for (dis)ability support in Australia the criteria of the NDIS states you must:
- be between 7 and 65-years of age and
- have a permanent and significant disability
For injuries that are the result of a road traffic accident, the Victorian Government-owned Traffic Accident Commission (TAC) is the organisation responsible, whilst the Victorian-based WorkSafe Victoria is the statutory authority responsible for administering workers compensation for those injured in the workplace.
At Colbrow we provide (dis)ability support, nursing, and care services for recipients of the NDIS, TAC, and WorkSafe Victoria, in addition to private clients who choose us to be their care provider. We are committed to delivering excellence in (dis)ability support so that you can live in the comfort of your own home as independently as possible, for as long as possible. Similarly, we will provide healthcare and rehabilitation services to those injured on our roads or workplace.
