People with disabilities are moving forward in life like any other individual in the world. They are valued members of the community and active participants in society. Over the years, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has provided many essential supports to people with disabilities. This has helped to maximise their independence and made them an important part of the workforce as well. One NDIS-funded support which has significantly helped to improve the functional skills of people with disabilities is a Core Support called Assistance with Daily Life.
Core Supports like Assistance with Daily life enhance the abilities of the NDIS participants to reach their goals. For example, depending on your needs and your NDIS plan, skilled NDIS support workers will visit you at your home and provide assistance with daily personal tasks which allows you to spend your day productively. Be it taking part in community activities or finally pursuing an employment opportunity, Assistance with Daily Living will be a big help to pursue those goals. Through this funded support, you can access assistance for your daily activities such as bathing, bowel management, getting dressed, cooking, yard maintenance etc. Sometimes, depending on the disability-related needs and personal circumstances of the participant, they can access higher levels of personal care support. As the participants improve their functionality and develop more independence over time to take care of their day-to-day activities, they can reduce the amount spent on one-on-one support. That money can then be used for community participation or any other core support that helps them achieve their goals.
