Every person with a disability has unique requirements and also requires special assistance. However, it might be overwhelming when it comes to NDIS funding and also the various budgets that fall under the three main categories. After all, there are 15 budgets to choose from!
Today, we’ll take a look at Assistance with Daily Life.
Assistance with Daily Life is a budget that falls under Core Supports. It includes assistance with daily personal activities to help you live as independently as possible at home and also in the community.
The following are examples of support kinds that you may be able to get through your NDIS Plan’s Assistance with Daily Life section:
- Assistance with personal activities daily.
- Assist with household chores.
- Assistance with living arrangements in a shared home.
- Independent Living Supported (SIL).
- Assistance and Short-Term Accommodation (or respite).
- Support is available at home and in the community.
In the NDIS, daily living entails all of the routine tasks and chores that must be completed during the course of a day, such as getting out of bed, showering, eating, and also moving around.
The NDIS is a national support program for people with a disability and their families. The NDIS connects people with disabilities with the services they need. This program is not intended to provide welfare benefits. Instead, it is a way for people with disabilities to get the support they need to live their lives as independently as possible. The criteria for participation in the NDIS include having a significant disability and a permanent impairment that affects daily life.
The Assistance with Daily Life budget is designed to help you accomplish all of these goals. Support workers can help you with or monitor duties, or they can undertake them for you if you are unable to do them yourself.
The following are some specific examples of what you might be able to do with this funding:
- Assistance in getting ready for the day (showering, dressing, etc.)
- Support to get you out in the community, such as taking you to appointments or accompanying you on public transportation.
- Help with domestic tasks such as cleaning.
- Receiving assistance in the yard, such as lawn mowing.
- Someone to help with meal preparation and also delivery, or the costs of meal delivery.
- Help with fitness and wellness.
- Help to get to and from appointments.
- Food costs or ready-to-eat meals (including delivered meals).
- The price of everyday products like cleaning supplies.
- Personal products that are not related to your disability, such as toiletries and cosmetics.
- Payments for rent, room, and board, or a mortgage.
- Tickets for events, concerts, and also movies, among other things.
The NDIS evaluates the Assistance with Daily Life funding requirement on a case-by-case basis. It will be included if it is deemed a “reasonable and essential” support that fits your needs and also assists you in accomplishing your goals.
