About the Supported Living + Complex & Individualised Support Teams

 

Supported Living Team

Nexus provides independent living support to around 50 people who live at accommodation sites around greater Hobart. Some of these sites are group homes that have been purpose built with specialised facilities for people who have decreased mobility, while other sites are just regular suburban houses or units.

Each site supports 1 to 4 people with a disability, whose needs range from being quite independent through to needing 24/7 complex support from staff.

Whether it be shared accommodation in a purpose built group home or living alone in a one-bedroom unit, each site is “home” for the individuals who live there.

 

Complex & Individualised Support Team

This team is focused on providing support to clients who have a high level of functioning and independent decision making skills but a range of complex support needs arising from trauma, emotional, intellectual and psycho-social issues.

The program has experienced considerable growth over the past two years and is gaining a reputation of having effective programs to support people to become as independent as they can be and to develop skills in a safe, supportive and regulated environment.

All roles within this team are supported by allied health based therapeutic program, staff training and mentoring which have been designed around the individual needs of each client.

Support Workers work on a fixed 28-day roster; Shift work that involves working a range of morning, afternoon, weekend and overnight or sleepovers shifts; and all roles provide quality direct care support to clients.
