The old adage, ‘never mix business with pleasure’ certainly doesn’t ring true for sisters Jenny and Andy. Having been in business together for over 20 years, it’s their shared history that led to their current business endeavour.
The sisters have seen firsthand the difficulties associated with caring for a family member with a disability. In particular, they realised that finding the ‘right’ support person could be life-changing for a person with a disability. With this realisation ‘Choice Matters -it’s all about you’ was conceived.
Choice Matters offers a personalised service where Andy and Jenny meet with the participant to discuss their support needs. Based on this in-depth discussion, they match the participant with a support person they think would be a great fit; but ultimately it is the participant who makes the final decision.
When asked what the sisters like best about their job, they say it’s the satisfaction they get from helping people with disability live life their way!
