Discover new opportunities and experiences.
Our teenage years are a time for new opportunities and experiences and our friendly team are here to support your teen get the most out of this exciting time. We can provide support physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually to help them be the best version of themselves.
Transition to work or study
At Angelic Care we support school leavers to transition into work or study, guiding them through the unknown. Our programs are designed to equip young adults with the skills they need to successfully transition to employment. We can also link your teen with a range of employment pathways to suit their strengths, interests and abilities. We provide teens with support and encourage them to have the confidence to chase the opportunities that inspire them.
Social support and activities
Your teen can connect with their community by accessing our support services. If your teen wants to go to a concert, head to the beach with friends, try a new hobby or meet new friends in a planned group activity, we can help. We take the time to get to know your teen, their interests and their goals and match them with likeminded social workers and activities.
We can support your teenager to live an independent life with confidence and dignity with our personal care services. Our friendly registered nurses can provide support at home in areas such as personal hygiene, mobility assistance, meal preparation and assistance and massage therapy.
Our therapies can support your teenager to improve their movement, strength and endurance to live more active and independent lives. Our team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists and social workers can assist your teenager to reach their goals through specialised techniques.
