What is the NDIS?

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is an Australian government-funded program that enables people with disability to live independent lives. It provides funding for a wide range of supports, such as life skills training, physiotherapy, personal care, 24/7 support, nursing care, vehicle modifications, daily living skills, and mobility equipment.

The NDIS is all about the individual, and empowers each participant to make their own decisions and be in charge of their support plan. That means that you can choose what your plan looks like, which supports you’d like to access, and who provides your supports. Registered providers work with participants to help them achieve their goals, in a way that empowers them to be as independent as possible.

Home Caring provides personalised NDIS disability care in Brisbane. Our local teams will work with you to create a support plan that not only makes the most of your funding, but helps you get the most out of life. To find out more, please get in touch with our friendly team.

How does disability support work in Australia?

In Australia, disability care services are provided by the government through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This is a national scheme that provides people living with disability funding to help them access the supports and services they need to live a fulfilling and healthy life.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme was first introduced in 2013 by the Australian government to provide a nationally consistent approach to supporting people with disability, which would ensure that they receive the care and support they need to live a fulfilling life. It was initially launched as a trial program in several locations across the country, including New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, and the Australian Capital Territory, before being officially rolled out nationally in July 2016.

Since then, the NDIS has provided funding and support to hundreds of thousands of Australians with disability. The scheme is designed to be flexible and personalised, with each participant receiving an individualised plan that outlines their specific needs and goals.

Are you looking for NDIS disability services & support organisation in Brisbane? Home Caring is here to help. As a Brisbane-based NDIS provider, our teams of healthcare professionals and support workers provide quality support that helps you enjoy independence. For more information about our NDIS services, please get in touch with our friendly staff.

Who is eligible for the NDIS?

In order to meet the eligibility requirements for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, an individual must satisfy the following criteria:

  • Be under 65 years of age when applying for the NDIS
  • Be an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or hold a Protected Special Category Visa.
  • Have a disability caused by an impairment that is likely to be permanent
  • Have an impairment that significantly affects their ability to perform everyday tasks
  • Have an impairment that affects their ability to work, study, or participate in social activities.
  • Be expected to require NDIS support for the entirety of their life.

To submit a successful application, applicants must provide medical reports and assessments as evidence of their disability. If approved, individuals will collaborate with a NDIS planner to develop a tailored plan that meets their specific needs and objectives. Their plan will be reviewed on a regular basis, to ensure it is still meeting the person’s needs and helping them work towards their goals.

Can you access disability accommodation through the NDIS?

The NDIS provides disability accommodation and housing solutions for people who need supports to be independent in their home environment. This includes options such as group homes, Supported Independent Living (SIL), Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), and transitional accommodation, such as Short-term accommodation (STA).

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is a type of housing solution designed for people who require a high level of support, including those with complex needs or behaviours of concern. It is purpose-built or modified housing that incorporates features and technology such as accessible design, specialised equipment, assistive technology, robust build, and staff support.

Supported Independent Living (SIL) allows people with disability to live in the community with the support of trained and qualified staff. SIL services include help with cooking, cleaning, and personal care, as well as support to develop life skills and participate in the community. SIL services are tailored to meet the needs and goals of each individual, and can be provided in a shared or individual living arrangement.

Short-term accommodation (STA) is another type of disability accommodation available through the NDIS. It provides temporary accommodation and support for people with disability who need respite, or who are transitioning between different living arrangements. STA can also provide an opportunity to try out different living arrangements and develop skills to live independently.

A group home is a type of disability accommodation available under the NDIS that provides a shared living arrangement for people with disabilities. Group homes are designed to provide a home-like environment where individuals can receive the support they need to live as independently as possible, while living with housemates who are also receiving support.

Home Caring provides NDIS housing for people with disability across Brisbane and other Queensland suburbs. All of our homes are in great locations, with all of the supports you need in a warm and inclusive environment. To inquire about our vacancies, please get in touch with our disability care experts.

  • Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI), an NDIS program designed to help children aged 0 to 6 who have developmental delay or a disability
  • funding for expenses such as special equipment, support workers, transport, assistive technology, and personal care
  • Education support to help children learn well at school, such as classroom support, assistive technology and other services
  • support for families and carers of children with disability, such as respite care, training and counselling services

Can I access assistive technology and aids through the NDIS?

Yes, if you are living with disability and eligible for NDIS funding, you may be able to access assistive technology and mobility aids to increase your ability to live independently in the community. This includes a range of devices, equipment and technology useful for daily living.

Assistive technology includes communication devices, hearing aids, visual aids, sensory equipment, and other devices that help people with disability to complete daily tasks and participate in the community. Mobility aids such as wheelchairs, walking frames mobility scooters and can also be funded by the NDIS, along with vehicle or home modifications such as having a ramp or ceiling hoists installed in your home.

To access assistive technology and mobility aids through the NDIS, you must first be assessed by an occupational therapist or other relevant health professional who can recommend appropriate equipment and devices to meet your individual needs. This assessment report is then submitted to the NDIS for consideration.

If approved, the NDIS provides funding to cover the cost of the equipment and devices, as well as any necessary modifications to your home or vehicle. The NDIS can also provide funding for ongoing maintenance and repairs of the equipment.

Do you need mobility equipment from NDIS disability support providers in Brisbane? Home Caring helps NDIS participants in Brisbane access high quality mobility equipment and assistive technology. We’ll help you get the equipment you need to live life to the full. For more information, please get in touch with our disability care experts. We’re more than happy to help.

Can seniors access the NDIS in Australia?

To be eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, you must be under 65 years of age at the time of your application, and have a disability that substantially impacts their ability to perform daily activities.

While seniors may experience disability related to the ageing process, such as mobility or sensory impairments, they are not eligible to receive funding through the NDIS. However, the Australian government provides other aged care services to assist with their needs, such as the Home Care Package program.

A Home Care Package is designed to provide support services to elderly individuals who need assistance to remain living independently in their homes. Eligibility for the program is based on an assessment of the person’s care needs and their level of independence. Like the NDIS, a Home Care Package provides funding for therapies, transport, social support, personal care, assistance with daily living, assistive technology, mobility aids, nursing care, home modifications and wellness support, but they are aimed at two different groups in the community.

Home Caring provides both NDIS supports and Home Care Packages to help people of all ages enjoy being independent. Whether you need disability or aged care support, our teams of qualified support workers and aged care workers are available to meet your needs. To find out more, please get in touch with our disability care and aged care experts.
