Case Management Co-ordination & Person Centred Planning

NWDS Support Coordination

NWDS's highly experienced case management services aim to assist people with disabilities to become more independent and active in community life. Case managers establish a positive and respectful relationship with the participant, and their support network, such as family members, they assist the participant to identify, access and organise the supports they need to achieve their goals.

Support Coordination involves a person-directed planning process. Supports provided through NWDS  are based on the individual needs and desires of the participant, their families and carers.

Person Centred Plan

NWDS can assist you with developing a Lifestyle Plan to meet your individual needs and goals by working with you and those close to you to develop a PCP.  

Person-centred planning (PCP) is a set of approaches designed to assist someone to plan their life and supports. It is used most often as a life planning model to enable individuals with disabilities or otherwise requiring support to increase their personal self-determination and improve their own independence.

The key areas areas for consideration in person centred planning are;

Who are the important people in a person’s life?

What are the person’s strengths (or gifts)?

What is important to the person now and in the future (their dreams)?

What kinds of support will the person need to achieve in the future they want?

What do we need to do?
