The PSS program offers lifelong visiting and advocacy for the time that parents become frail or have passed away. Whether they live in a group home, with a host family, or in their own home, the PSS provides an independent person to oversee their care and welfare as well as offer companionship and support.
PSS visitors are trained to look out for the big and small issues affecting your family member’s life. They often form a close connection with the person they visit, sharing in their interests, enjoying their company, and over time, becoming a trusted and valued friend and advocate.
A PSS gives your family member a voice – a voice of a trusted advocate who support them to speak out if things are not right in the same way that you would. When someone is heavily reliant on paid support workers for their care, or is living alone, a trusted independent visitor can make a very real difference in their life.
Before we knew about Future Living we were anxious about Shelly’s future. We are very grateful and relieved and grateful to find such a wonderful organisation that really will provide for her when we can’t.
I can’t thank you enough for your guidance so far. I must confess you have well and truly turned this (NDIS) sceptic around.
My husband and I have donated to Future Living since 2012. We want to ensure the organisation continues to create a secure future for people with intellectual disability, recognising their individuality and striving to meet their needs.
The Safe & Secure program combines practical guidance and expert information in one place that helps families navigate complex issues.
I really love working with Future Living. It is great to work with such a dedicated team who genuinely care about their clients. Even though my work does not put me in direct contact with clients, the team always makes me feel like the work I do is helping them to provide a better level of much-needed support in the disability community. It is very rewarding for me.
