How do I get NDIS support?

Eligibility criteria exist for NDIS.  You can check your eligibility on the NDIS website at https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/am-i-eligible

Once you have determined you are eligible, you can then apply for funding.  This involves completing an Access Request Form and submitting this to the NDIA.  Your GP can help you complete this form, or you can get help from an NDIS Local Area Coordinator. Visit https://www.ndis.gov.au/how-apply-ndis/what-access-request-form for more details on the application process.

How We Help

What is a NDIS Plan?

Once the Access Request Form is received, a planning
meeting will be organised to discuss your goals and the
activities/asks you wish to receive support for. This will form your NDIS Plan, which needs to be approved by the NDIA prior to being actioned.

The plan is approved for a 12-month period and will be reviewed six weeks prior to the end of that 12-month period. This is done in order to reflect on the last 12 months achievements, activities and to understand future goals and needs. The plan review meeting can be done in person or over the phone.

Things to consider when preparing for your NDIS plan

Each person living with a disability has different needs and NDIS funding is there to help with short and medium, to long-term goals in their NDIS plan. Before your plan meeting, it is advisable to consider:

  • What areas do you need support?
  • Who do you want to manage your funding? The NDIA or a Plan Manager can do this for you or you can choose to Self-manage.
  • Do you need a Support Coordinator to help coordinate support and services or will you do this on your own?

What does NDIS funding cover?

NDIS funding is based on what is ‘reasonable’ and ‘necessary’ to achieve the goals outlined in the NDIS plan. There are three types of support budgets that may be included in your NDIS plan.
  • Core Supports Budget – includes assistance with activities of daily living, social and community access
  • Capacity Building Budget – supports the capacity to participate more fully in the community
  • Capital Support Budget – relates to supports like assistive technology or modifications to your home

DEDICATED TO AGEING WELL
I can't thank the team at Home Care Assistance North Coast enough for their help with my Dad. David led us through the Home Care Package details with honesty and integrity, and they were able to... organise a lawn mowing service as well as a carer to visit Dad.My only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time with the team as Dad has now moved into an Aged Care Facility. Thank you again.read more
So blessed. Such a wonderful team to take care of me, keeping my life simple and enabling the very best I could wish for. Thank you, Meg and Dave!
David and his team have been outstanding in the help they have offered my father. i would highly recommend them to anyone. First class job!
Dave and the team go above and beyond to ensure your loved one receives the best possible care
I looked long and thoroughly before I selected a care provider for my husband who has dementia. Being with Home Care Assistance for almost a year, has confirmed all my expectations. And more.As a... carer I feel very supported by David and Meg. They are always available by phone or email, and this means a lot. But perhaps the best quality of their organisation is the high calibre and personalised choice of all the care givers they have provided for us - whether it be someone to spend time with my husband or someone to slash our overgrown yard.I have no hesitation in recommending Home Care Assistance - and, indeed, have already done so.Pamela Payneread more
Home Care Assistance North Coast has really put the CARE back into my aged care experience for my mother.Right from the beginning communication with management (David and Meg) has been excellent... with all of my requests and questions answered patiently, promptly and cheerfully.Due to Home Care Assistance's policy of tender care my mother has had hand massages, foot baths and massages, diversional therapy involving music and art, poetry and encouraging Mum to interact positively.Domestic tasks are attended to cheerfully.Blue ribbon service and red carpet treatment for their valued clients. Highly recommended!read more
Really appreciate you guys helping my grandpa. Great service and staff.
We had a couple of unsatisfactory situations with care providers as we found the service unsatisfactory and disappointing. We considered cancelling the idea of any home care service until we found... Home Care Assistance. The BEST ever care. Communication is fabulous, information is succinct and they are affable and approachable. From the first contact with Geoff, to liaising with Kelly, I knew we had found the service that delivers what we expected to receive from a care provider. Thankyou you good people, for your care and consideration of our needs.read more
The carers who looked after my elderly mother were without exception highly motivated, caring and compassionate. Not only was Mum looked after supremely well, she was provided with wonderful... companionship, a level of independence that would have been impossible without the help of her special carers, and a lot of fun. It is difficult to put into words how much this meant to her entire family! Keep up the good work.read more
We have the highest praise for HCA as an organisation, and deep gratitude and respect for the people involved - all the way from Dave & Meg at the top right through office staff and on to the... wonderful warm carers who have meant so much to our mother over the last three years. From our experience HCA offers a service far beyond the general expectations of the aged care sector, and we have no hesitation recommending them. Thank you HCA, for all that you've done for Mum - and for us by extension.read more
The most helpful, caring, supportive and flexible team of people to assist with our elderly loved ones.I am so grateful for all you had done for my Mum.... ❤️❤️❤️read more
Our family has benefited from the excellent support and services from David, Meg and the team at Home Care Assistance North Coast for the past couple of years. I had an extensive list of questions... when we were deciding which provider to go with. David answered promptly, and impressed me with his empathy, accessibility (available after hours, weekends), and ability to tailor a package to meet our particular needs. Add to that the best value for package dollars, and it was an easy decision to go with HCA North Coast.The staff employed by HCA North Coast have been excellent. David was able to source staff who were a good match for my Dad’s personality. As our needs evolved, it was easy to change any aspect of the care provided.I am very happy to recommend Home Care Assistance North Coast, for anyone looking for quality care for their loved one.read more
Highly recommend the team at Home Care North Coast. Thank you for your attention and care. A+ advice and support.
