THE PTBL MISSION
Our overarching mission is to enhance the lives of people with a disability by enabling
opportunities for choice and control, inclusion and achievement: at home, and in the community.
We will achieve our mission by our process of identifying the supports needed and finding the right independent worker to provide them.
We offer people the support they need, with the worker they choose. Because “choice and control” is not just a catchphrase for us. We want people to be comfortable and enjoy life the best they can.
NDIS Support & Services
Here at Pathways we consider the invitation to support you in your home as one of the most regarded privileges. We offer a range of supports in the home from personal care, meal preparation or to support with your skill building, to help you achieve your Goals.
Additionally, our caregivers provide assistance with basic activities of daily living, and they are also qualified to support those living with certain conditions, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. Caregivers are also trained to assist in the successful transition from a hospital or rehabilitation facility to a home.Additionally, our caregivers provide assistance with basic activities of daily living, and they are also qualified to support those living with certain conditions, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s.

Being a member of our local community is one of the most critical aspects of living a better life. Participants in Community Access can engage in a wide range of tasks that they require assistance in completing. These tasks include shopping and attending appointments. Taking part in social activities and groups. You will receive support throughout the process.
Supports and services are provided to participants under the NDIS to increase their independence, inclusion, and participation in society and the economy.
NDIS supports should:
- Relate to the participant’s disability
- Never include day-to-day living costs that aren’t related to a participant’s disability support needs
- Represent value for money
- Strive to be beneficial to the participant
- Consider the informal support provided by families, carers, networks, and the community.
Additional disability-related health supports can be purchased with NDIS funding. It is possible to classify typical types of support into eight ‘support type’ categories.
Fundable supports are not listed in any particular order, and may take various forms.
- Dysphagia supports
- Respiratory supports
- Nutrition supports
- Diabetes management supports
- Continence supports
- Wound and pressure care supports.
- Podiatry supports
- Epilepsy supports.
Currently, this area is undergoing development. Various activities will be offered to groups of people who share a common interest. With this program, you have the opportunity to meet new people in a social and fun environment while receiving support. We provide the opportunity to explore new hobbies in a safe, supported setting, with other local participants from all walks of life. We see group support as a way of opening up a world of possibilities for you to find exciting things to do.
Depending on your needs, your eligibility, and what services are available in the area, you may be able to access respite care for a few hours, a few days, or longer. Assisted living can be accessed at home, in your own home, in the community, or in an aged care facility.
It is possible to plan respite care in advance, for example, if your carer plans a trip or has an appointment to attend. Furthermore, the service is available in an emergency – for example, if your carer is admitted to the hospital unexpectedly.
