Far North Support Alarms
Rating (average)

Business Description

Servicing Cairns , Tablelands, Innisfail, Port Douglas/Mossman and Cooktown

Far North Support Alarms provide assistive technology solutions to help people stay connected with the community for longer, providing peace of mind for the alarm user and their family. In the event of an emergency, the alarm provides a way to contact emergency services from anywhere in the home or garden with just a press of a button.
The alarms deliver a service that provides up to 40 hours’ battery backup in the event of a power outage. Each alarm is supplied with a pendant that can be worn on the wrist or around the neck, allowing the user to activate an alarm call from anywhere in the home, without having to struggle to reach a phone.

How it works
When the alarm is activated via the pendant or the central alarm unit, it contacts a 24/7 monitoring centre, putting the user in contact with a trained care consultant who will aid the user by carrying out their direct request or assessing the situation and determining what action needs to be taken; such as contacting a family member or friend, after-hours doctor, or emergency services. Our care consultant will stay on the line until help arrives.
Who is it for?
Far North Support Alarms assists people to maintain their independence and safety in the home. A variety of users can benefit including:
✓ Elderly people
✓ People living alone
✓ People living rural
✓ People living with a disability
✓ Individuals recovering from illness, injury or surgery
✓ Those with long-term health conditions

I provide services between Cairns and Edmonton (Port Douglas, Kuranda and Gordonvale by negotiation).
Business Description

CRP Assisted Transport offers you door-to-door transport to help you get where you need to go.

You will be collected from your door and assisted to my car if you need it, whether it’s an arm to hold for support or an umbrella to protect you from the rain. I can drop you where you need to be and come back and pick you up, or I can wait with you and get you home straight after your appointment. I can assist you with doing some grocery shopping, drop you at the movies, take you to a medical appointment or even to the hairdresser – whatever you need. I do not provide in-home support so I can only help you to get out and about in the community. My rates are reflective of this, and you only pay for the time I am transporting and/or assisting you.

I am a registered Commissioner of Declarations, have a Blue Card as well as Public Liability and Vehicle Insurance and I have undertaken the NDIS Worker Orientation module as well as having undertaken Driver Safety and Infection Control training.

My time is charged from pick up to drop off at $51.00 per hour (.85 cents per minute). There is a minimum charge of 30 minutes for any trip, with each additional minute charged at $0.85 cents per minute. I can drop you off and will come back at a nominated time or I can wait with you or nearby, ready for the return trip when you are. You will only be charged when I am with you or waiting for you at your request. There is an additional charge of $1.00 per kilometre for the transport.

All charges can be billed directly to your NDIS Plan Manager or paid directly as I am not a registered provider.
