How Do I Organise Core Supports Funded By The NDIS?

As someone who lives with a disability, you might be aware of some of the challenges that come with navigating the health system. Fortunately, the Australian Government have created a scheme called the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to help support Australians living with a disability. The NDIS is a scheme which provides funding to Australians living with a disability. To be eligible for NDIS funding, you must meet the following criteria.

  • 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.

Once it has been determined that you meet the following criteria, the funding in your NDIS plan can be used for one of the following types of support budgets.

  • Core supports
  • Capacity building supports
  • Capital supports

Core supports are funds that assist you with everyday activities and working towards your goals. This type of funding is often the most flexible and can be used across any of these four categories.

  • Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as cleaning, household tasks and light gardening
  • Social support and community access
  • Transport

Core supports can also be used for allied health services which can improve your overall quality of life. Some examples of allied health services that might be useful to you include

  • Physiotherapists who can assist you with living an active and healthy lifestyle.
  • Occupational therapists who can assist with relevant home modifications.
  • Dietitians who can assist with nutritional support or meal preparation.

Once you have been approved for core supports funding, the next step is to find a registered provider to assist you with achieving your goals. Opting for a registered home care provider is a better choice compared to an online platform as all the support workers will have undergone extensive background checks, and many providers often have tailored packages to ensure that you are getting the best service possible.

After you have found a registered provider, then finding the right support worker becomes a lot simpler. When you are looking for a support worker, it is important to identify which providers have staff specifically trained in dealing with individuals requiring specialist disability-related assistance.

At Home Care Assistance SE Melbourne, we offer a range of services to assist you to live independently. Some of these services include assistance with ADLs, personal care tasks and going out to shops, attending social activities.

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

We have been with Home Care assistance for last three years. I am impressed by the diversity of the services, they provide.I had few carers but the carer, Shweta, has been coming to us for last two... years, has been a Godsend.
