BehaviourWhat is Behaviour of Concern?
The behavior of concern, also termed challenging behavior, refers to challenging and difficult behaviors exhibited by people with a disability that impact their physical safety or quality of life and/or those around them.
Behaviors of concern can be when someone does things that hurt themselves, other people, and/or things. This behavior can stop them from doing things that ‘regular’ people do, such as going to work or meeting with friends.
Behavior 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 behavior support is available to clients regardless of whether they reside in specialist disability accommodation or currently live in the home.
