Disability Care is a subject which focuses on simple practical support for people with mobility issues. Disability studies are designed to impart academic and practical knowledge about providing quality care to these individuals. Students study the subject from a health and nursing care, legal, and traditional perspective, with the aim of empowering individuals to live a quality lifestyle despite their physical impairments.
Working with people with disabilities can be quite rewarding. Individuals with specialised training and experience working with people with disabilities might be hired to come into their homes and assist. Depending on the person’s needs, they can help for a few hours or more or provide 24-hour supervision. Home care may be flexible and adaptable to changing needs, which is especially crucial if someone is suffering from a degenerative condition or is temporarily disabled. If you have a passion for making a difference in people’s lives, studying Disability Care may be for you.
Associate, undergraduate and postgraduate disability study programs are currently being offered by universities across the world. The duration of the programs varies between one to three years. The average cost of studying Disability Studies in Australia is AUD 13,000 per semester.
