Mitchell – Disability Support Services

Mitchell has profound autism. He is non-verbal and requires a high level of care on a daily basis.

His mother, Ros, sought respite care in 2008, initially to take care of Mitchell for an afternoon here and there, so she could go to some tennis matches with her other son. When she moved to Perth from Bunbury and was herself diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2013, Ros needed more help, such as overnight respite care and cleaning services.

Irena, End of life care

Irena – End of Life Care

Irena was a fiercely independent 92 year old widow with no relatives except a devoted niece. After a bout of repeated hospital visits, her geriatrician advised that she could not stay at home on her own. She adamantly refused to consider moving into a care home, so her niece took on primary responsibility for Irena’s end of life care in her own home.
