Ark's Support in Practice
Jacob is 57 years old and was born with physical disabilities. Ark began working with Jacob to complete practical tasks at home and support him to enter employment.
Ark recruited a team of care support workers to support Jacob, who would develop a friendly relationship support him to lead the active social life that he wanted without feeling that he had full-time carers. Jacob’s care team supports him to live independently, ensuring he has help around the home and support to complete daily duties such as food shopping and cooking.
Jacob works part-time for a charity and leads an active social life, spending quality time with his family, friends and colleagues.
