Humans are social beings that’s why interaction with other people is important. This is even more true for the people who fall under elderly and disabled care.

In this post, Auslife Disability care, an NDIS-Accredited leading disability service provider, discusses what social and community participation activities are and how this is important in elderly home care and disabled care.

What Is Community Participation?

Community participation is the involvement of people in different activities of the community. All participants of a support service provider should be willing to join this. They can choose different community activities according to their interest, their disability-related needs and their personal goals.

This aspect is covered by the NDIS for those who need elderly and disabled care.

What Are the Benefits?

Community participation plays a great role in developing the participant’s personality and skills. It can be the key towards more opportunities, bigger groups of friends and reaching important milestones in life.

It Helps in Boosting Self Confidence

The elderly and disabled are normally ostracized. Through social and community participation, they can build better self confidence by letting them be part of group activities.

Can Reduce Longer-Term Support

It has been proven that community participation improves the well being of participants. This can lower the length of time for long-term support for elderly and disabled.

Improves Behavior of People With Disabilities

Being part of social activities can make the participants feel better. They will also have the chance to interact with different people, which will make them be more mindful in their behaviors.

Help People Interact Independently Without Relying Too Much on Support

Activities like these help participants be more independent as they do the activities without the need for individual support.
