Mandatory Worker Orientation Module – NDIS

Mandatory Training for Staff

elvesCARE supports people operating across the disability sector, and it is important that all elvesCARE staff complete the NDIS Worker Orientation Module.

The NDIS Worker Orientation Module is incorporated into elvesCARE’s recruitment process and has become a mandatory requirement for support staff and office staff.

How to complete the Worker Orientation Module

  1. You will need access to a computer or iPad/tablet with sound (headphones are a good idea too) and a quiet area.

  3. Complete the 4 components.
  4. It will take approximately 90 mins to complete, but you can save and return to where you left off.
  5. Once you have completed all 4 modules, the system will email you a Certificate of Completion. Please forward this to us to update your mandatory training records with elvesCARE.

Stress

Stress

 

Stress affects us all. A little stress is OK — some stress is actually beneficial — too much stress can wear you down and make you sick, both mentally and physically.
However, stress can become a chronic condition if a person does not take steps to manage it.

Symptoms of stress include:

  • Feeling unusually tired
  • Headaches
  • Teeth grinding
  • Appetite loss or gain
  • Dizziness
  • Run-down
  • Increased heart rate
  • Dry mouth

 

Stress symptoms may be affecting your health, even though you may not realize it

 

The stress hormone, cortisol, is public health enemy Number One. Cortisol is released in response to fear or stress by the adrenal glands as part of the fight-or-flight mechanism. Once the alarm to release cortisol has sounded, your body becomes mobilized and ready for action — but there has to be a physical release of fight or flight. Otherwise, cortisol levels build up in the blood, which wreaks havoc on your mind and body.

Scientists have known for years that elevated cortisol levels interfere with learning and memory, lower immune function and bone density, increase weight gain, blood pressure, cholesterol, and heart disease— and the list goes on.

Chronic stress and elevated cortisol levels also increase one’s risk of depression, mental illness, and decreased resilience — especially in adolescence.

Behaviour of Concern

Behaviour of Concern

Behaviour of concern, also termed challenging behaviour, refers to challenging and difficult behaviours exhibited by people with a disability that impact their physical safety or quality of life and/or those around them.

Behaviours of concern can be when someone does things that hurt themselves, other people, and/or things. This behaviour can stop them from doing things that ‘regular’ people do, such as going to work or meeting with friends.

Behaviour of concern can seriously cause stress for family and/or carers, and possibly harm them.

Our behaviour support is a service designed to improve participant’s quality of life, and supports the family and/or carers with skills and tools to reinforce a positive change.

elvesCARE behaviour support is available to clients regardless of whether they reside in specialist disability accommodation or currently live in the home.
