Description: 

Service providers are expected to adopt a wellness approach in their service delivery practices. This guide explains what good practice looks like in home support services, and what organisations and individual workers can do to successfully adopt these approaches.

This includes:

  • interpreting the support plan with a wellness approach in mind
  • working with individuals and their carers to maximise independence
  • building on the strengths, capacity and wishes of individuals
  • embedding a cultural shift from ‘doing for’ to ‘doing with’ across service delivery

Read this guide together with the CHSP Manual and CHSP Guidelines.
