What Can NDIS Funds Be Used For?

NDIS Plan

Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), there is a wide range of services and supports that have been approved to deliver the best outcomes for people who have a disability. These services are called eligible services, and you can use your NDIS funding to help pay for them. This scheme has definitely given people with disability and their families more independence and choice. It has also helped to equal the playing field with other Australians.

You can use the allocated NDIS funds to choose services that will work for you and your goals:-

Support from friends, family & Community

Social support is one of the areas in which more funding and options are needed, according to experts in the field. If you require social support services and have a disability, an NDIS package can be used to pay for these services. This can be something like volunteering as part of a club or organisation where you’re able to meet and interact with others. The NDIS funds can also be used for counselling sessions, music lessons and etc. which helps to provide a sense of security.  

You can trust MSMPM by managing the funds allocated for your social support services while you live a busy, full and exciting life. Some people find support through going to church every week, while others might find it in learning a new skill or doing something different just for fun in the community. It’s up to you to find out how the NDIS can best meet your needs in the area of social support.

Services to help with Household chores

The NDIS may have been set up to help disabled people get specialized services, but this shouldn’t stop you from making use of the scheme to get a helping hand with things you don’t necessarily think of as part of your NDIS plan.

Would you like to have home help? You already know the answer. Having domestic help means making sure you’re looked after by people who are experts in their fields. No matter what services you choose from – like changing the bed sheets, ironing and doing laundry, cleaning the garden and so much more. There’s always something to be done around the house, and you can relax knowing it’s all taken care of.

You can also be confident that you’ll receive advice and support from MSMPM if you ever have any concerns.

Therapy Support

To live with a disability, it is important to seek support from others, including therapy which is a vital component. The NDIS provides funding for a range of mental health services, including Psychology, Counselling and Art/Music Therapy. They will cover sessions provided by a therapist and people can access therapy through home visits or via video conferencing if appropriate.

Personalized attention is often the most helpful approach for a therapist to address a client’s concerns.

Work and Study Support Services

You may be an employee, student, freelancer, business owner or working from home. The NDIS support tasks you have difficulty with, leaving you free to focus on your goals and aspirations. If you feel as though you’re not making progress in your studies or work life – feel free to contact MSMPM. We are happy to give you proper guidance!

Health and Wellbeing Services

Nursing services for health and wellbeing rely on the combination of qualities of people, skills and capabilities. Nurses are well equipped to deal with many kinds of illnesses and disabilities. They can use their techniques, experience, qualifications and knowledge to help people maintain a high level of care and comfort through the healing process.

Support Workers with verified nursing qualifications can be contacted offering quality care and management which is essential for your continued health and wellbeing, whether as needed or on an ongoing basis. Having a professional at home is a great source of comfort whether you’re ill or merely seeking preventive care. Home care services for seniors also make a big difference in their lives.

Daily Personal Activities

Personal care is an important element of living independently at home. It’ll make you feel more confident and comfortable if you get help with your hygiene and grooming. You will receive personal and attentive care that is always sensitive to your solitude, comfort and pride.

Therapeutic Support

Therapeutic support means helping people with disabilities throughout their daily tasks. They can be as simple as a button for someone to push, or as big and expensive as a vehicle that can take an individual from their house to school, work, or on an errand like visiting a bank, doctor’s appointment or shopping. It’s comforting to know that help is available with these tasks, so you can maintain your independence.

Transport Assistance

The NDIS can fund transport assistance for a participant who finds it difficult to use public transport due to their disability. Transport facilities are available that enable people to participate in the community, social, economic and daily life activities. The NDIS will provide funding for participants with a disability who are currently working, looking for work, or studying, and who are unable to use public transport because of their disability.

The key takeaway here is that you shouldn’t be afraid to ask questions when it comes to your NDIS plan. Remember that you’re the one in charge of your own care, and if something doesn’t seem right, speak up. The same goes for home modifications of any kind—your wheelchair ramp may be covered by the NDIS, but what about installing grab bars in your bathroom? It’s worth asking. The NDIS is here to provide you with disability support, equipment and technology to help with everyday life! Wisely using the funds can definitely improve your quality of life.
