What You Need to Know About Getting Personal Care Services Under NDIS

48Views

The National Disability Insurance Scheme NDIS offers a range of support services to people with disabilities, including personal care services. These services can be provided in your home, and they can help you with daily activities that you might need support with. It’s important to understand how to access personal care services under NDIS.

Meeting the eligibility criteria is the first step in accessing NDIS personal care providers. This means that you need to have a disability that is permanent or likely to be permanent, that significantly affects your ability to do daily activities, that requires support from others, and that is not related to normal aging. You also need to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident and be under 65 years of age.

Once you’re an eligible NDIS participant, you can work with your planner to decide what kind of personal care support you need. This will help determine how much funding you’ll receive for the services and what you’ll be able to access. Personal care services can include assistance with getting dressed, bathing, eating, and using the toilet, as well as other day-to-day activities.

NDIS personal care providers are available to help you live independently and maintain your quality of life. Take advantage of this support if you’re eligible. Contact NDIS or your local service provider for more information on how you can start receiving personal care services.
