Business Description

Hi there! I am an optimistic and outgoing woman and come with 7+ years of experience in working with people with intellectual disabilities in and around Cairns; some of it in respite care (holiday home for people with disabilities), several years in day respite (for adults out of school-age with intellectual disabilities), as well as 1:1 supports in the community.

I also work with people who experience mental health challenges. Aside from being a support worker, I am a cert. IV Yoga Teacher and used to work as a Dive Instructor. Personally, I lead an active lifestyle and some of my hobbies are hiking/walking in nature, swimming and snorkelling, and riding my mountain bike. Besides, I am also an avid animal lover, read and write books, and enjoy painting and drawing. I am an experienced cook and like to have a good laugh. Life is serious enough as it is.

My interest is to inspire and assist people to achieve their goals, to put smiles on faces, and to be creative in my supports and interactions. I am safety conscious and aim to create memorable, fun, and life-enhancing experiences for and with my clients. I enjoy most working with people that love to interact and engage in the community, individuals that wish to exercise and like to be active, or wish to learn a skill (cooking, painting/drawing, computer or writing), and enjoy trying new things. But most of all I believe that any support is about great connection, creating a fun and positive environment, and having a fun time! I am fully NDIS worker screened, hold Blue Card, a current First Aid, insurance and an unrestricted drivers licence (with comprehensive insurance).

Servicing Cairns Northern Beaches area.

I hope I piqued your interest and am looking forward to meeting you.

Business Description

PRIVATE CARER AVAILABLE
I would like to welcome you to my home which is located out in Redlynch valley. Redlynch Valley showcases
some of the most stunning rainforest backdrops, fresh water creeks and crystal cascades that Cairns has to
offer.
During your stay I would like to help you find your perfect balance of adventure and relaxation. A day could be
spent by the pool, baking some treats, watching a movie or even using the home gym. If a bit of adventure is
what you like then exploring the Great barrier reef and local islands is only a boat ride away. Maybe a little
hike though the rainforest or hanging out at the zoo is more your thing. There is so much to do in our lovely
backyard and surrounding towns and I am happy to tailor the experience around yourself and your needs.
We welcome Plan or Self Managed participants.
I have worked in a range of roles and environments with kids with ASD from community access, residential care, school engagement, and emotional regulation with both carers and clients.
I have a passion for the ocean with a background in training and teaching, am a qualified chef, and house and care for a miniature farm of chickens, guinea pigs and birds, some of which love working in a therapeutic environment to help regulate emotions.

The meaning for Marae is culture, meeting and connecting family and friends. I feel it is important that everyone has the opportunity to live their best life and have choice and control with the supports and services that are privileged enough to support them through their journey.

I am passionate about engaging individuals in the community, with culture, family while building positive relationships and believe everyone should have the opportunity to excel while gaining confidence and new skills. I really enjoy building relationships in the indigenous communities around Cairns and have supported many families over the last few years. We all get to a point where we want the opportunity to take off on our own and build a name for ourselves rather than for everyone else.

Business Description

My name is Justin, people call me Juzz or Juzzy. I'm 27 years old and currently living between cairns and Airlie Beach.

With four years experience working closely with clients in the NDIS, I believe that EVERYONE has the right to live in a community where they are accepted and encouraged to live their life to the fullest.  A world where your independence is encouraged and your disability or mental illness does not limit your engagement within our community and world.

I am passionate about everyone living their lives in their own terms and my best days are spent with those in the community doing just that.

Do you like Hiking? Art?   How about photography, cinematography, electronic music production or just a walk in the rainforest. Does fishing or boating get you excited? Me too! have boat and all the gear if that what excites you, if you like exploring islands or just cruising the rivers, lets it together.

I love all things creative and nature, I would love to hear what makes you happy, see if we can connect and spend some quality time together.
You are and in whatever creative realm makes you happy, I would love to join you and help you express yourself.

I have many references and happy to see you to see if we connect.  I am passionate about helping and caring for others and would love to explore this amazing city and beyond.

If you have further questions please message me or email and we'll chat some more.

Kind regards
