Bringing real possibilities to life.
When you have an NDIS plan, you can decide which service providers you work with.
Some people find and coordinate their services themselves, but it can be quite difficult. That’s when Support Coordination might be included in your NDIS plan. Support Coordinators can help you find mainstream and other disability services that are right for you.
There are three levels of support coordination that can be included in your plan. These are support connection, coordination of supports, and specialist support coordination.
Support coordination includes
- assess several mainstreams, community, informal, and provider options
- choose preferred options or providers
- negotiate services to be provided and their prices, develop service agreements and create service bookings with preferred providers
- negotiate services and prices as part of any quotable supports
- arrange any assessments required to determine the nature and type of funding required (e.g., assessment to determine the type of complex home modifications required, linking with allied health professionals)
- decide the budget for each support type and advise any relevant plan manager of the breakdown of funds
- liaise with any plan manager to establish the appropriate claim categories and attribute the correct amount of funds
- link to mainstream or community services (i.e., housing, education, transport, health)
- strengthen and enhance participant's and their family's capacity to coordinate supports, self-direct and manage supports and participate in the community, including providing participants with assistance to:
Support Coordinators may also undertake some specialist activities, including:
· assisting the participant get ready for their plan review by helping them:
· assess whether they achieved their goals and got value for money for their plan
· identify solutions to problems experienced in implementing the plan
· helping participants decide what actions to take to achieve goals in relation to exploring housing options and life transition planning
Home and Living Supports
Assistance with Daily Life (ADL) is a support category for assistance or supervision of personal tasks during day-to-day life that enables the participant to live independently as possible. These supports are provided individually to participants and can be provided in a range of environments, including their own home.
If you find it difficult to clean or do other housework because of your disability , your NDIS package may fund NDIS cleaning support so that you can have a clean, comfortable home.
NDIS cleaning services could include vacuuming, sweeping and mopping the floors, cleaning the bathroom and kitchen, changing the sheets on your bed, and dusting and wiping down surfaces. You can also receive support to do your laundry and even have your NDIS cleaner defrost your fridge should it be needed.
It's important that medications are taken as prescribed. Our support workers can help you monitor your medication, support you to maintain your own care, and provide extra peace of mind for you and your family.
