How Can NDIS Help You Or Your Loved One?

Are you under 65 years old and recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s, MS, Younger Onset Dementia or had Stroke or other disability? 

As someone who lives a disability, you may recognise the unique challenges that come with this situation such as being unable to access the supports needed to live a fulfilling life. Fortunately, the Australian Government has organised a scheme called the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to help support Australians living with a disability.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a scheme from the Australian Government which provides funding to people living with a disability. The NDIS helps people living with a disability to have greater independence, more time with family and friends and greater community access. All these things can help to potentially improve the quality of life for those living with a disability in Australia.

If you would like to apply for NDIS funding, there are some requirements that need to be met for you to be eligible for funding.

  • You need to be younger than 65 years old.
  • You need to be an Australian citizen or have permanent residency.
  • Meet the relevant disability requirements.

If you would like more information about whether you are eligible for NDIS funding, then you access more information here.

Once it has been determined that you are eligible for NDIS funding, an NDIS planner or local coordinator will help to identify your current support needs. These needs are often identified during a home visit where the planner will work with the individual to develop a personalised plan to achieve the client’s goals.

The services available to the client via NDIS funding are often dictated by the client’s needs and goals. Some of these services may include:

  • Core supports such as ADLs and assistance with personal care tasks.
  • Funding for the purchases of assistive technology (AT), home modifications or equipment needed to support the individual
  • Allied health services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech pathology.

Another major benefit of the NDIS is that the service is designed to be flexible so that the individual benefits from it across the lifespan. Therefore, if an individual’s needs change, the NDIS planner or home care coordinator can perform a re-assessment to ensure that the client is getting the most benefit from the service.

I really like working at Homecare Assistance the Office Team are very helpful and they give me plenty of work.
Recently I had a situation where due to a family crisis, I needed respite assistance for a couple of days. Home Care Assistance provided a quick response to my query and were able to get a... person for me in time for me to go to my brother's funeral in another state. The person who stayed and looked after my father was very caring, compassionate and reliable. I was extremely happy with the service provided.read more
