Care1, according to their website, is a company that supplies “respite, personal care, social support, therapy and domestic assistance” based in Australia. One of Care1’s specialties is, or acquired brain injuries. Care1 offers acquired brain injury services and support in Sydney, as advertised on their website.
Through a standard question and answer format, Care1 details its services, specialized personnel, and knowledge of ABI. Right away, they make a point to share exactly what services they provide, such as rehabilitation and behavioral assistance. The diction used on the Care1 website is specifically designed to convey compassion for an intensely personal experience.
Acquired Brain Injury
Because, as stated on their website, acquired brain injuries are so misunderstood, it made perfect sense for the site designers to include an entire section explaining just what ABI means. According to their site, an acquired brain injury is a “brain injury that occurs as the result of an accident, illness or traumatic event.” Thethen affects specific areas of the brain and the functions that portion of the brain is responsible for, such as speech, memory, or motor function.
Typically, an acquired brain injury occurs following a dramatic incident or accident that damages the brain. It can occur as the result of the physical impact of the loss of oxygen. Injuries, most often, come from falls, assault, sporting accidents, or traffic collisions. According to Care1, more than 70% of acquired brain injuries are the result of a road accident. An ABI can also be caused by a stroke, tumors, or asphyxiation.
Unfortunately, ABIs are more common than a lot of people realize. In terms of severity, the injury will vary greatly, but around 55,000 people in New South Wales are in need of help from organizations like Care1 as the result of an.
Assistance from Care1
Care1 isn’t shy about explaining exactly why their services are not only needed but worth your time and money. As stated on the Care1 website, “there is a supplier shortage in the service provision for acquired brain injuries in New South Wales and the population.” Because of the risks and a high number of people with ABIs, there is, understandably, a high demand for care providers.
Individuals of all ages, including both children and adults, are welcome to receive brain injury services from Care1. But by now you’re likely wondering about the cost. Care1 knows and understands that the last thing a family would want to deal with is financial stress related to caring for a loved one with an ABI.
Care1 makes it clear on their website that they try to keep costs to a minimum, whenever they can, “to ensure all our brain injury services remain reasonably accessible.” That allows you, as a visitor wanting to find out more, to see firsthand that they have your best interests, and care, in mind. They make a point to share that they are “n accredited and approved provider to Lifetime Care & Support Authority (LTCS), Workers Care and the Transport Accidents Authority (TAC). Care1 is also registered to assist participants under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.”
As mentioned above, a question and answer format are used to detail the information most site visitors would want to know. The format makes the information easy to digest and follow.
Additionally, the use of several images that are meant to convey emotion do so effectively without seeming cheesy or over-the-top. Speaking of conveying emotion, it’s clear that Care1 put a lot of thought into their color selection.
If you scroll further down the page, beyond the question and answer section, you come to a section of the site that allows you to find out more about disability support, community care, and aged care. While this portion isn’t related to ABIs, it is related to the services offered by Care1. That can be confusing for some who would assume that what is included on the page, has to do with just ABI care.
That being said, Care1 does provide a section at the bottom of the page that includes their phone number in case of a need for further assistance. If an online inquiry is preferred, they have an easy-to-follow form right there on the site that you can fill in and submit, although it doesn’t say exactly how you may be contacted. Given that you provide both your phone number and email, it’s safe to assume you would be contacted via either option.
Care1 clearly put a lot of thought and effort into their site. They provide vital information to answer just about any question a visitor may have while providing the option to contact the company for more information. It’s easy to navigate, well designed, and efficient.
