At Enhanced Lifestyles, we’re a team of passionate individuals who believe in the importance of respectful, dignified, and holistic support.
We’re also not shy about our goal: we want to be the NDIS employer of choice that provides the highest quality of service to our customers while fully supporting our team’s growth. We believe that what’s good for our employees is good for our customers, so we’re focused on shaping our organisation to deliver life-enriching holistic support both to our customers and in the way we support our employees.
Over thirty years ago, a group of people living with disability realised that no one was better equipped to choose the kind of support they needed than themselves. Honing their knowledge and skills, together they became architects and builders of their own individualised disability services.
Today, Enhanced Lifestyles remains a member-governed not-for-profit, our Board predominantly comprised of people who use our services. By designing support services based on lived experience, we deliver the services people want to live life the way they choose.
You may be familiar with the term ‘disability support worker’ as common industry terminology. At Enhanced Lifestyles, we use the term Lifestyle Attendant to refer to our disability support worker and personal care providers. This is grounded in our customer-centred approach, reflecting the way our customers remain in control across their lifestyle choices.
Whether they’re regularly active in their communities, busy at home, or prefer to change their routines on a daily basis, our Lifestyle Attendants are there to support our customers in a manner that’s based on their individual needs, goals, desires and preferences. Our Lifestyle Attendants achieve this through in-home or community support to individuals with disabilities, performing a variety of duties in these day-to-day support roles.
Our customers are all unique individuals, so we tailor our services in response to both their needs and their goals. We’re focused on keeping control in the hands of our customers, with the majority of our customer base opting to self-direct their service.
Enhanced Lifestyles is a member-governed organisation with over 30 years of quality care provided to our valuable customers. Our head office team provide a wide range of supports and services including:
• Support Coordination • Specialist Support Coordination • Psychosocial Recovery Coaching • Customer relations • Rostering and administration; and • Corporate support such as finance, human resources, IT, marketing, and quality
As a not-for-profit organisation, we’re led by our person-centric ethos. With a commitment to providing our customers with maximum choice and control over their service, our members who live with a disability set the agenda for how those services are delivered in order to achieve this goal. Customers are equipped with control over their lives and the option to manage all elements of their services, including the selection of Lifestyle Attendants on their team through to hours of service and their roster.
