Professional NDIS registered providers recognize the fact that disabled people and their carers have several different needs. As part of the insurance scheme, these organisations adhere to a strict set of guidelines and quality assurance practices that ensure those needing support only get the best possible care.
Disability housing and NDIS service providers from are designed to help disabled people, carers and families better connect with and contribute to the community at large. This means a broader access to supports that enable those with special needs to live as close to an ordinary life as possible.
Let’s take a look at some of the most important things NDIS registered providers can do.
Access to information
Information is a powerful tool for people with disabilities as it allows them to find out more about the kinds of supports they can get. This means finding emerging supports as well as ones that already exist within their community.
NDIS service providers can give access to information on:
- Better and easier access to information regarding the best support options
- Referrals to the best crisis intervention, mainstream, community services and disability supports
- Building of individuality and interdependence through skills development, peer support and diagnosis consultancy
- Referrals to local support networks, clubs, groups and associations
NDIS registered providers are well integrated into their local communities and are able to provide a broad range of information to their clients.
Individual supports and action plans
Those who are eligible for access to NDIS service providers will be able to construct individualise support plans. These plans work to help identify many important aspects of ongoing care such as:
- Aspirations and goals – The plan will cover the ongoing goals of the disabled person and identify what kind of support from NDIS service providers they will need to reach them. This includes supports for daily function as well as those which help to improve their interdependence such as finding a job.
- Lifetime supports – This refers to the way in which supports may need to change with the age of a disabled person. Supports may also change as a result of changes in the condition of the disability whether it improves or worsens.
- Families and carers – Families and carers are crucial to the support network that a disabled person has access to. They are worked with throughout every stage of the process so that their value is sustained and expanded.
- Plan management – This allows the plan that a disabled person takes on to be continually managed by a person they nominate. This may be a family member, carer or someone working for NDIS service providers.
NDIS service providers are able to assist with facilitating early intervention for a disabled person. This is done only when evidence shows that this early intervention will improve an area of function or can delay the decline of an area of function.
This is the most important aspect of what NDIS service providers are able to give to eligible participants. The ways in which funded supports are given is outlines in the management plan agreed to by the disabled person.
These supports from NDIS service providers may be single costs, like a wheelchair or may by continual costs like physiotherapy. Both of these kinds of supports may be necessary to reach to goals and aspirations outlined in the support plan.
NDIS providers can facilitate access to assistive technologies that work to improve the daily function of disabled people. This includes devices that allow them to perform tasks they otherwise could not or to help them with tasks they would otherwise struggle with.
NDIS service providers are able to give access to necessary and reasonable assistance in the form of funded devices. NDIS service providers use this to help their clients reach aspirations of better engagement in social and economic areas.
NDIS service providers can source and pay for assistive technologies such as; mobility canes, non-slip mats, over-toilet frames, hearing aids and much more.
