Who we are
At Xavier, we have a long and proud history supporting Brisbane families of children with complex disabilities and health needs.
We work with families to help them access the support and services they require to best meet the unique needs of their child living with complex health and disability needs. We help children and their families to live the best lives possible, as a family. We provide health supports such as nursing and allied health services through to supporting children in play and in their community giving them the opportunity to just be kids.
Our goal is to deliver the highest quality support and services to families who really need it. Families who are caring for children with complex disabilities and health needs, that require very tailored care. Our team exclusively specialise in meeting these complex needs and have decades of experience to draw upon. We work with families throughout the greater Brisbane region.
You will most likely have heard of hydrotherapy but what exactly is it and how does it work to support children, teens and young adults with a physical disability?
In May 2019, the Federal Government commissioned a review of the NDIS to identify opportunities to make processes simpler and more straight-forward. The review found that the NDIS is improving economic and social outcomes for many of its participants and increasing their ability to achieve their goals. The review also found that the rollout of the NDIS has not been smooth for all participants.
Plan Management is one of the three ways that you can choose to manage your NDIS funds. While participants choose Plan Management for many different reasons based on their individual and/or family circumstances, this option can have multiple benefits.
At Xavier, we are one of the few disability providers in Brisbane that have nursing services available to help you care for your child’s health related needs. We provide training, support and monitoring of Xavier Support Workers. With the recent NDIS update, this support can now be funded through your child’s plan.
