Daily Living


Ready to have the time of your life? Discovering a life not yet lived makes you feel alive – and Daily Living is where you learn how to really take part in all the everyday things you’ve always wanted to do. 

What is Daily Living?

Daily Living is about making you feel comfortable and confident doing everyday things. We see you for you, no matter what that means for your hopes and dreams.

Here are some common things on people’s ‘to-do’ list:

– Choosing what you want for lunch
– Catching a bus to town
– Catching up with friends
– Going bowling
– Seeing a match at the stadium
– Visiting your favourite café
– Chatting with friends online.

At Rocky Bay, our job is to organise activities that enable you to participate in the life you want to live. To do that, your job is to guide us in the right direction so we can choose the right activities together. We’ll ask questions to learn more about where you are at in your life and what you would like to achieve. The answers you provide help us better understand what it would take to get there. The more we discover, the better we can plan your service.  

The aim is to shape your Daily Living experiences to match your age, likes and interests, from feeding ducks at the lake to playing beer pong with friends! Not everyone shares the same life goals, but that’s what’s so exciting – this is about experiencing the things that make you happy and content. And if that means surrounding you with likeminded people, we can arrange that too.

Why Rocky Bay?

Rocky Bay has been helping people of all abilities get more out of everyday experiences for over 80 years. Our Daily Living services are tailored to individual needs to make your journey toward independence as personal, empowering and comfortable as possible. 

Seeing you for you

We work hard to understand you as a person so we can treat you as an individual. By taking the time to get to know you, your interests and career aspirations, we can tailor a support plan to #yourgoals. This takes a lot of energy and collaboration, working alongside family, supporters and potential employers to find the solutions that allow you to live the way you want, doing the things you enjoy most.

Backing you in

We know that having someone do things for you all the time isn’t always the most helpful way to help you grow. At Rocky Bay we work with you, and, wherever and whenever possible, actively support you to do as much as you can, by yourself. It’s your choice – we’re just here to back you in. If you feel ready to be more independent, we give you the space. If you feel like you need a bit more assistance, well that’s ok too.  

Keeping it in the family

Family is a huge part of life. That doesn’t just disappear the more your independence grows. That’s why we involve your loved ones at every opportunity. As your partners in possibility, Rocky Bay’s friendly team can provide the services that support and enhance your personal growth, both together and apart.

Here for the long run

We have a low staff turnover, which gives you peace of mind knowing we deliver a safe and consistent service. Whatever #yourgoals, or the situation you find yourself in, we give you a sense of familiarity with the people supporting you, whether in your home or out in the community. The more time we spend together, the more we build that sense of connection, friendship and freedom long-term.
