Daily Living Skills

Do you need support with your to-do-list or your daily jobs? Let's get them done together!

What are Daily Living Skills?

Daily Living Skills are the skills we use in everyday life. Skills like cooking, cleaning, using money, catching public transport, the list goes on!

Supports with Daily Living Skills can help people with a disability learn to do these tasks on their own, as well as lend a hand when needed.


Daily Living Skills services at Aruma

At Aruma (formerly House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation), no matter what support you need or what you want to learn, we can help.

What tasks can Aruma help me with?

No matter what you need, we can support you with lots of different tasks, such as:

  • Daily routines
  • Cooking and cleaning
  • Personal care
  • Shopping
  • Money and budgeting
  • Taking medication
  • Volunteering and working
  • Joining a group or club
  • Tips to make friends
  • Catching public transport
  • Working with Government services.

Can Aruma staff come to my home?

We can! Our Support Workers can come to your home for short periods of time to help you out with tasks such as morning and evening routines and much more.

Our team can provide anywhere from several hours per week to several hours per day. But it’s best to first check what support your NDIS plan includes.

Can Aruma help me learn how to do these tasks on my own?

We sure can. A large part of our service is helping you learn to do some, or even all, of these tasks on your own.

Let us know what you want to learn and we’ll make it happen.

Over time, this may mean you need less support from us or other service providers.

Will I learn one-on-one or in groups?

It’s your choice! You might choose to learn as part of a group, where you can meet new people.

Or, you might decide that you learn better on your own. Just let us know.

Can Aruma help me travel on my own?

Yes, we can. If one of your goals is to travel on your own, we can help make this happen.

This might be catching public transport, understanding road safety, or getting your driver’s licence.
