The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) constantly encourage independence, social engagement and participation in community activities in the case of people with disabilities through various funded support and services. NDIS Assistance with Daily Living is an important support funded by the NDIS and can greatly improve the quality of life for those with disabilities. By accessing this support, individuals with disabilities can carry out daily living activities with greater ease and focus on their goals.
Assistance with Daily Life can be accessed through the Core Supports budget of the participant. This support can help the participants to overcome their functional limitations and help them carry out day-to-day activities such as personal care, cooking, cleaning and even chores like yard maintenance with assistance from competent support workers. The aim of Assistance with Daily Life is to offer support, not to take over the life of the participant. The ‘choice and control’ of the participant must be respected throughout the delivery of the service. The support worker needs to ask the participant how they would like to receive assistance and adapt the care approach accordingly. Participants can ask for Assistance with Daily Life support during their planning meeting. Depending on your disability needs, NDIS will allocate a Core Supports budget using which you can purchase Assistance with Daily Life services from a provider.
