A Meet and Greet is a fantastic opportunity to make sure a Social Carer is the right match for you.
Your first 5 Meet and Greets are free, for up to 1 hour each. You can meet a Social Carer via a phone call, video call or face-to-face at a location like your home, workplace or local cafe. You can bring along members of your Support Circle, like a family member or Support Coordinator.
A Meet and Greet isn't compulsory, but we highly recommend organising one if you're looking for ongoing support.
Here are some topics you and a Carer may want to talk about:
- The organisation of extra expenses and transport
- Times and days you will be requiring support
- Any future unavailable times (like if you're going on holidays)
- Specific qualifications, triggers, likes and dislikes
