Accuro Homecare is now working with Castle Personnel to make available to our all of our workers, the government funded Work Assist program. Work Assist is a free service to employers with staff who have difficulty performing their role due to an injury, disability or health condition. Castle Personnel, under this program, will provide experienced Employment Support Managers who will develop strategies and provide advice and assistance for at least 6 months to help improve a persons ability to perform their duties.
Examples for the support Castle Personnel can provide include;
- Organising physiotherapy, occupational therapy, pain management and counselling.
- Performing workplace assessments , arranging modifications to the workplace and suggesting ways to modify aspects of their role.
These services are free to both employer and employee and information provided by the employee can remain confidential and not be disclosed to the employer.
Jenny, from the Castle has been great in providing helpful advice to all of our Direct Support Workers while presenting at our meetings Erina, Newcastle and Toukley.
