NDIS Care Plan

What is an NDIS Care Plan?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-funded scheme that provided funding and support for people living with a disability in Australia. The NDIS works closely with service providers, families of those living with a disability and healthcare providers involved in delivering support to those living with a disability. These supports are often outlined in an NDIS care plan which is an important document that outlines the supports needed to help the client live independently. This helps to ensure that the NDIS delivers services that are tailored to each individual client.

At Home Care Assistance SE Melbourne, we offer a range of services to assist with caring for you and your loved one once your NDIS plan has approved core supports funding. Some of these services include

  • assistance with Activities of Daily Living such as personal care, and help with meal preparation funded by core supports.
  • Transport support to medical appointments and therapy visits.
  • Assistance & support to participate in home exercise program regularly
  • Support with going to groups, visiting your community or other social activities.

The first step when accessing an NDIS care plan is to apply for access to the NDIS. To do this, you can apply online via https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/how-apply or by calling the NDIS at 1800 800 110. Before you do this, it is important to ensure that you meet the requirements for NDIS funding which are:

Once it has been determined that you are eligible for NDIS funding, the next step is to apply for an NDIS care plan.

Before you apply for an NDIS care plan, you need to organise a planning conversation with your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) an approved NDIS service provider to determine your eligibility for NDIS funding. Some of the questions that you may be asked during your planning meeting could be related to

  • Personal details
  • Community or family supports
  • Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
  • Any equipment or modifications required to ensure your safety when living at home.
  • What would you like to achieve from NDIS?
  • What support do you require to reach your goals?

To ensure a well-prepared planning meeting, it is important to dedicate sufficient time as it often takes up to an hour. Some tips that can assist you with this include.

  • Completing booklet 2 (planning) on the NDIS website and having it with you
  • Having any relevant reports or assessments with you during the meeting
  • Having a friend or family member present to assist you if needed

Your LAC can also provide further assistance by referring you to specialists who can assist you with achieving your goals. Some of these specialists include allied health services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy.

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. She pushes him to do the things which i am unable to. It’s a compliment to Homecare assistance to employ professionals of that standard.No matter what problem I incur, all I have to do is to ring the agency..The eagerness and understanding towards the need of the client is amazing.I would recommend Homecare assistance to anyone and everyone, who requires assistance in all aspects of life.In my case i am grateful of the help i am getting to look after my husband.read more
