What is the NDIS?


NDIS stands for National Disability Scheme. It is a new way of providing care for people with a disability, their carers and familes.

NDIS provides care to people under 65 who have a permanent and significant disability with necessary and reasonable support needed to live an ordinary life. You also need to be an Australian citizen or be a permanent resident. To find out more information on eligbility click here.

When you contact NDIS a local area coordinator will help you to understand the NDIS, how to access the NDIS and will help make a plan.




What is an NDIS plan?


An NDIS plan will define for you what your goals are and how much money you get for services and supports. You can have a say in what suppoorts you want, when you get support and who you get the support from.




How do I ask for an NDIS Plan


You can either go to the NDIS website: www.ndis.gov.au or call 1800 800 110 to speak to someone who can help start the process.




What is Support Coordination?


Some NDIS plans have funding for support coordination. This person assists in getting your care plan started and helps with decision making on who you want to provise the support for you. This is where we step in. Southern Highlands Home Care wants to focus on delivering the services and supports that you need to reach your goals. We will help you with day to day activities, travel and transport support, domestic assistance, social support and much more. We work closely with you, your family or carer and your support coordinator if you have one to achieve this.




Is the NDIS plan flexible and can I change the plan as needs change?


Yes. Your support plan is adaptable to your changing needs. Your support plan has regular scheduled reviews and can be changed if your circumstances change.
