Enable West Australia has been supporting individuals and their families living with disability, mental health, ageing and with short or long term health issues, since 1991.
Enable West Australia is dedicated to creating support mechanisms which empower people, giving them the opportunity to build a life of their choice – a life filled with the same adventures, challenges, joys and love that many of us take for granted.
CFAA is actively working with community services organisations to ensure those that care for others are highly qualified to deliver these specialised services.
CFAA’s is committed to recognising the professional skills and life experience that people in the service of others already have. Through a Recognition of Prior Learning process, nine local Enable West Australia employees have gained their Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability).
CFAA’s mandate as a multi-award winning RTO, is to ensure that our local community is supported by highly qualified community services and health professionals. We have a vested interest, as we live and work locally.
‘Enable South West, were quick to seize the opportunity for their team to gain qualifications in alignment with the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme’, said CFAA’s Director Jane Goff.
‘It has been wonderful that the skills and experiences of our dedicated Support Staff Team have been formally recognised. It will also provide an opportunity for career pathways to open up for those staff members as they are now able to demonstrate the value of the work they undertake.’ Rhea Tansell – Chief Operations Officer – Enable WA

Today (May 12) is International Nurses Day. Nurses are the principal providers of primary health care in most nations of the world and without them, the health of communities everywhere would be severely compromised. So thank you to all nurses, who spend their lives caring for the well-being of others.
We can remain blissfully ignorant of aged care issues, until we ourselves face the reality of caring for our loved ones and realise that there while there are a range of support services, there is also a complex web of administration and huge deficient of residential care options available.
We all know someone who has parents who are ageing. Many of these aged people are still living independently. The Federal Government’s new Aged Care Workforce Strategy Taskforce has commissioned a report, Accentuating the positive: consumer experiences of aged care at home.
This report focuses upon consumer’s opinions of aged care services delivered in the home, and while most seniors reflected positivity regarding their carers, co-ordination between home care and health services needed to be improved.
Dealing with difficult conversations is something that most of us are not skilled at doing. We instinctively avoid pain, and seek pleasure. However, there are essential conversations, difficult that they may be, that all of us need to start having. Advance care planning enables families to have clarity regarding the values and preferences of each individual family member regarding health and personal care. An Advance Care planning kicks in, when you are able to communicate these values and preferences.
