Guides 4 Sight (G4S) offers individualised, ‘one to one’ assistance that enables people to be independent. We pride ourselves in supporting each person to realise ‘Independence, Your Way’.
Our services are suitable for people who have a:
- Temporary health condition
- Condition that is likely to be permanent or
- Our elderly
We assist people who are self-funded (not eligible for Government assistance) and those who choose to manage their National Disability Insurance Scheme funded supports. We are also accredited to provide support coordination.
Our assistance is very unique to your circumstances and goals, so it is very important that we work together to identify what you are looking for and what your needs are. Your continued independence is important to us so our assistive services will be guided by you.
While our services are suitable for everyone, our area of expertise is assisting people who have vision loss, hearing loss or combined vision and hearing loss.
