Get the support you need from people you can trust

Trust takes time, that’s for sure. It isn’t easy to welcome new people into your home. It’s your safe space – a place to relax and put your guard down. It’s natural to ask, “Will they treat my home with the same care and respect that I do?” 

What you deserve is the support that understands your needs and commits to making trust and safety the cornerstones of the relationship. At the end of the day, it’s your home, your rules. It’s about finding that special team you feel comfortable with – carers who can make your home shine, but also respect your privacy and personal belongings as much as you do

Don’t sweat the process and the costs 

Getting the help you need shouldn’t be complicated. Asking for help already takes a lot of courage. Thankfully, you don’t need to go through the NDIS process alone. 

You deserve to know exactly what support you can access, how to get it, and that doing so won’t leave a big dent in your wallet. After all, the right support should feel like a safety net, not a financial burden.  Let’s walk through this together, step-by-step.

What kind of help can I get for household tasks through the NDIS?

The NDIS understands that managing household tasks can be a challenge for many participants. That’s why they offer support for a variety of domestic chores that will help participants maintain a comfortable and healthy living environment. This includes assistance with daily activities like cleaning, laundry, dishwashing, and meal preparation. 

You can customise your NDIS plan to include all kinds of help, freeing up time to participate in activities you enjoy. Just be sure to communicate your needs during your planning meetings. This helps make sure your NDIS plan reflects the support you need.

It’s important to find NDIS providers who are commited to understanding and meeting your specific needs. When searching, don’t hesitate to ask how they adjust their help to fit your schedule and preferences 

Look for those who are willing to adjust services as your needs change. A good provider will listen to your concerns, and your NDIS support coordinator can also be a big help. Talk to them about what you’re looking for and they can connect you with providers who specialise in offering customised support.

If you feel like you’re not being heard, schedule a meeting with your NDIS provider and discuss your concerns directly. Be clear about what’s not working and provide suggestions for how they can better support you. 

If the situation doesn’t improve, remember, you have the choice to change providers. The NDIS aims to empower you with choice and control over the support you receive. So don’t hesitate to explore other options if a provider isn’t a good fit.

Navigating the NDIS system can seem overwhelming at first, but there are resources available to you. 

Start by connecting with an NDIS support coordinator, who can guide you through the process. They can help you understand your plan, manage your funding, and connect with the right service providers. 

There are also community organisations and online resources that can answer your questions and explain your rights. Of course, you can always reach out to the NDIS directly if you need clarification on anything.

Just like any service, NDIS support workers can vary in training and experience. The policies of individual NDIS providers also play a part here. 

It’s important to communicate your expectations clearly from the start and provide feedback on the support you receive. If you’re not happy, don’t hesitate to talk to them. They should be willing to address any issues and, if necessary, offer alternative support workers. 

Additionally, you can also report your experiences to the NDIS for further action. You’re in charge – and you deserve to feel comfortable and supported in your own home.

To make sure your NDIS funding covers your needs, be prepared for your planning meeting. Write down all the daily chores and tasks you need assistance with, and consider how these supports contribute to achieving your goals. Be specific about how often you need help, and with what tasks. 

Your NDIS plan is flexible and should reflect the support you need to live independently. Just talk to your planner or support coordinator to adjust your funding if things change.

Absolutely! The NDIS is all about helping you live your life to the fullest.

One of their big goals is to help participants engage more fully with their communities. This includes providing support for household tasks to free up your time and energy for activities outside the home. By taking care of domestic chores, you’ll have more time for hobbies, education, volunteering, or social events. 

Talk to your planner about including these activities in your goals. They can also connect you with support for things like transportation and social activities,  making it even easier to get involved.

The NDIS understands that your needs may change over time. If you find that your circumstances have changed and your current plan no longer meets your needs, you can request a plan review. 

This is a chance to discuss any new challenges or goals with your NDIS planner. They’ll help you adjust your support accordingly. It’s also important to keep track of any changes in your condition or lifestyle. This way, you can provide detailed information during your review.

Finding the right NDIS provider for household tasks starts with understanding your specific needs and preferences. Look for providers that specialise in the type of assistance you require. Make sure you ask about their experience, qualifications, and approach to supporting NDIS participants. 

You can also read reviews or ask for references from other NDIS participants. Remember, a good match should feel comfortable and right for YOU – someone who gets you and can support your independence at home.

Yes, assistance with cooking meals can be included in your NDIS plan, under the category of assistance with daily living. This helps you maintain good nutrition and enjoy a varied diet, contributing to your overall well-being and independence. 

At your planning meeting, talk about your dietary needs and any difficulties you face with meal preparation. This helps make sure that your plan includes the perfect meal prep support, tailored to your tastes and health requirements.
