SALT Support Workers help with core supports that enable a participant to complete activities of daily living.

 

A Support Worker is someone you pay to help you because of your disability related needs. Support workers: assist people with self-medication, implement care 

programs for those in residential establishments, provide in-home support with health issues and daily living tasks such as washing, dressing, eating, transport and budgeting.
