A note about restorative care and similar packages

In some instances the support offered to you via a funding agency (e.g. the DHB) will be about helping you to get back to ‘doing things for yourself’ (often known as restorative care). This may mean that your support worker is more likely to ask you to do parts of the task with them. They should be able to demonstrate what skills they believe you could regain/retain.  If you’re unclear about how your service is delivered speak with the home support agency manager or, if receiving subsidised care, the person coordinating your services.
