The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides all the crucial supports that a differently-abled individual needs to live an independent and purpose-driven life. The funded supports provided by the NDIS assist them with their living arrangements, help them develop various skills, and provide them with diverse care options including in-home support and community support. Social and recreation support is also provided under the scheme as it is crucial for the mental and social well being of the participant. The cost of the social activity is not covered by the NDIS but all the necessary support that the participant requires to take part in that activity will be taken care of under their NDIS plan.
In-Home support under the NDIS helps those participants who need assistance with personal care and household chores. The essential daily living activities like meal preparation, help with getting dressed, cleaning, yard maintenance and a variety of other household tasks are included in the funded supports that you can access in the comfort of your home. For many people, these in-home supports are a big factor in being able to go to work and performing on par with their able peers. Over time many participants will be able to do some of these tasks on their own. Community support involves providing assistance for participating in various social activities that help the participants to meet new people, create friendships and be active members of their community. The in-home support as well the community support is equally important for the overall wellness and health of the participant.
The participants can access the support that they need through various registered NDIS service providers like Aastha. Having a qualified and experienced service provider to help you in your NDIS journey will make a world of difference in the quality of services that you receive.
