Heather has Autism and is supported by our Community Support team in Perth. Heather’s dad Gordon shares what the support Heather receives means to her and her family.

“Heather was in an extremely difficult state just a few months into the lockdown period, with lack of sleep and agitated behaviour that was very challenging and upsetting for us all. Cornerstone’s support added some much-needed contact with the outside world and added some structure to her day, while we were both working. The team have been very flexible in dealing with Heather’s varying moods of the day, never pushing against her will, while still trying to keep her engaged with different activities.

 “I’d like to thank Cornerstone for all the support the team have provided through the difficult times we’ve experienced during lockdown.” - Gordon

“Heather now knows and trusts her Cornerstone team, and they continue to help her cope with the slow transition back to some semblance of normality. I’m hoping the relationships Heather has built with the team will hold her in good stead for when we can get back to a good weekly routine at her normal day service provision, and so she can enjoy some Cornerstone respite care and get a break from her parents!”
