Wyndham Clinic Private Hospital is excited to now be a registered NDIS support service. We will work with you and your funding agency (NDIS) to make sure you receive the support you want and need. Our staff will encourage you to be independent and make decisions for yourself. If you require an interpreter or have specific communication needs, please let us know, so that we can provide resources to support you.
We welcome people from all backgrounds and cultures and believe that to help people feel included and respected it is important to understand and appreciate their history, customs, values, beliefs and traditions. This includes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people, the traditional custodians of the land. Our staff has regular training on effective ways to support people from different backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, LGBTQIA and diverse cultural and religious groups.
We are offering:

Your Support Plan is developed in consultation with yourself and the key people in your life to support you to achieve your goals.

Positive Behaviour Support
Wyndham Clinic provides a safe and supportive environment by adhering to the NDIS Practice Standards and the NDIS Positive Behaviours Support Capability Framework.
Our Behaviour Support Practitioners are all registered health professionals who use their years of experience to create opportunities for positive behaviour support strategies that include the least restrictive practices.
Wyndham Clinic Behaviour Support Practitioners use a person-centred, strengths-based approach to assess and understand the underlying factors impacting on a person’s quality of life. We look at personal considerations (such as ability, triggers, thinking patterns and habits, physical, emotional, cultural, family and support needs, functions of particular behaviours, strengths and preferences), environmental and systemic context, and challenges in participation and performance of daily activities. We can then develop effective behaviour support plans, in collaboration with the client, their family and support system, to promote safety, recovery, independence and participation, while reducing the occurrence, risk and impact of behaviours of concern.
Health & Safety
Wyndham Clinic aims to promote a safe and supportive environment and to ensure that client safety and wellbeing are paramount within programs and activities.
Staff may be required to complete a home safety assessment or a risk assessment to make sure everyone is safe. Any client or staff related event resulting in, or having a potential for harm to any person, the environment or property must be reported by staff. It will then be recorded in our incident management system.
