Daily Living and Life Skills

To be independent, it’s important to develop daily living skills that help you meet everyday challenges. Doing things for yourself helps you feel confident and in control, knowing you can tackle whatever the day throws at you.

Home Caring helps people with disability develop Daily Living and Life Skills for everyday life. As a NDIS provider, we’ll enable you to build your independence, so they can get what you want out of life.

Our experienced team will give you all the training and support you need to learn a wide range of important daily life activities. This includes:

  • Using public transport and planning a trip
  • Personal presentation, hygiene and taking care of yourself
  • Communicating, social skills and interpersonal skills
  • Looking after your home and keeping it clean
  • Preparing a tasty and healthy meal, and taking care of your nutrition
  • Doing your own laundry
  • Problem solving daily life challenges
  • Budgeting your money and financial management skills development
  • Taking your medication
  • Doing the grocery shopping and budgeting for what you need
  • Improving relationships with your family and friends
  • Following a routine for daily tasks
  • Planning and organising skills
  • Communicating with your NDIS service providers and managing funding of supports
  • Regulating your emotions when things become overwhelming
  • Improved Daily Living activities and support

We provide individualised support, helping you grow and develop according to your NDIS goals. Whether you’re being supported one-on-one or in a group setting, we make learning everyday life skills a fun and engaging experience for everyone involved. You’ll gain confidence for life, as you work towards your own personal development.

Our Approach

We also help NDIS participants take part in community life – whether that’s through doing everyday tasks together, learning how to access the services you need, helping you enjoy community activities you’re passionate about, or providing you with opportunities to make new friends and grow your support network.

How is Life Skills support funded?

If you are a NDIS participant, you may be able to fund Daily Living and Life Skills development and support with your NDIS plan, so long as your inability to do certain tasks is related to your disability, and the support is reasonable and necessary to increase your independence and help you reach your goals. Depending on the support you require, your funding might fall under the Core Supports or Capacity Building categories.

For assistance and advice, chat to your support coordinator or Local Area Coordinator. You can also give us a call we’re happy to chat to you about your situation. If you are not yet a NDIS participant, we can give some guidance on the application process.
