SA SUCCESS STORIES: Baptist Care SA
Written by Kit Densley on March 29, 2021
Helping You Live the Life You Want
Having a safe place to call home, where you feel relaxed, happy and comfortable is a human right. When you’re facing life’s challenges while living with a disability, a secure place to call home is one less thing to worry about.
NDIS client Michael, 23, lives in his own home in Adelaide and is supported by two Baptist Care SA carers.
“They’re really important to me because they help me organise my day, get out and about – everything goes much smoother when they’re with me” Michael explains.
Overcoming his anger and controlling his emotions is an ongoing challenge for Michael. He finds it particularly difficult in a crowd. “I really want to improve my social skills, but sometimes I feel like I’m about to explode, so it’s good to leave and come home”.
Having visitors is something Michael couldn’t have done a few years ago, but now he is relaxed and happy to chat about his garden and his interest in cooking.
“I’m excited about the future. The opportunity to get more involved in my community and do more. It’s good to have someone to help me do what I want in my life” he says with a smile.
Together, Baptist Care SA will build on your strengths while doing those everyday tasks like:

- and other things that are important to you.
