Southern Cross Care Community Services began its operations in 2002. Southern Cross Care Community Services provides services throughout South East Queensland with service outlets in Brisbane, on the Gold Coast, Ipswich and Logan.
Our belief is that everyone has the right to choose to live in his or her home. This is part of our commitment to value and respect human life and to support our clients to get the most out of their lives now. Our community services provide support for those more elderly who choose to stay in their own homes longer, for those with disabilities and other clients needing in-home support.
It is our role to assist people to achieve their goals with optimum independence.
Coordination and care staff have extensive experience in Client Directed Care (CDC) drawn from the relationships we have with clients under individualised funding allocations within disability funding arrangements, e.g. Lifestyle Packages. In these relationships we understand the relevance and importance of working in collaboration with people with disability and their families to optimise life choices and realise the outcomes they identify for themselves. Southern Cross Care Queensland works within a strength based care framework and our philosophy, values, policies and supporting tools directly facilitate active engagement of consumers and their families.
Southern Cross Care Queensland has a comprehensive portfolio of marketing material to promote and inform current and potential care recipients and their representatives about the organisation and the services and programs being delivered. Specific information relating to CDC would be clearly articulated including how these work, eligibility, what is involved in the budgeting for the care recipient and how to access the services with Southern Cross Care Queensland. Our information is readily available throughout a wide network including hospitals, GP surgeries, ACAT, community network meetings as well as local advertisements and our website.
Southern Cross Care Queensland responds to identified individual care needs with a coordinated, planned and reliable service delivery.
Information, consultation, decision making and choice are all part of our approach.
