What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for Australians who are under 65 years old and have a permanent and significant disability; that is, a disability that is likely to last for your lifetime and that affects your ability to complete everyday tasks.
In Victoria, over 100 000 people benefit from participation in the NDIS — for 40 000 of those people, this is the first time they have received the support services they need. We are happy to be a small part of that here in Armadale.
The scheme is implemented by the National Disability Insurance Agency, who help participants develop an NDIS plan that details your personal goals, aspirations and any support you need to get you there. Participants may only require support in certain areas of their life — travel, for example, or employment and community activities — while others may need more assistance to improve the quality of their everyday lives.
As time passes, your NDIS plan will inevitably change. Having a support coordination expert on your side will allow you to allocate all your funding properly, manage what services you need (and what ones you don’t) and connect you with Armadale service providers.
Need Help With Your NDIS Plan?
To access the NDIS, you will need to apply to the National Disability Insurance Agency. Once accepted as a participant, you will work with the agency to come up with a plan that details your goals and the support that is needed to help you on your journey.
If you are having trouble with your NDIS application or want more information about the services and funding that will be available to you, our local area coordinator for Armadale will be happy to take any questions you may have.
Gentle Care Support Services offers a wide range of support services for people in Armadale. We prioritise a kind and caring approach that gives the power to NDIS participants and helps them achieve the goals that they have chosen.
We also offer early intervention services that can help to reduce the impacts of a person’s disability and help them to build the skills and confidence they need to achieve their ideal lifestyle.
Home care services
We have home care services for all levels of assistance. Whether a participant just needs help with tasks around the house or requires full support on an everyday basis, we can match you with a local Armadale carer that will be able to meet your needs.
We can facilitate recreational and civic activities in a community setting to give NDIS participants the opportunity to build and refine social skills, as well as provide opportunities for people to get involved in the Armadale community.
To get the most out of your NDIS services, we can provide a support coordinator that will help participants and their families with the more complex aspects of the NDIS. When it comes to managing funds, we can ensure that you know what the best use of your money is to get the best assistance possible.
Your assigned local area coordinator will be familiar with Armadale, allowing them to help you choose services that are in your neighbourhood and that will work better for you and your family.

There are dozens of people in Armadale who are living with permanent disability or that were born with disabilities that hinder them from being able to carry on their daily chores the way they are supposed to. With that in mind, the national government and the state governments have teamed up to be able to provide people with such disabilities the much-needed help to enable them to lead normal lives. It is therefore important that if you are living with a disability or are living with one facing such instances to make sure that you enquire about the National Government Insurance Scheme. Some of the reasons why you should consider it are discussed below.
One of the major benefits of registering for the NDIS program is that it helps people with disabilities by providing services and lessening the expenses, medical costs and other inconveniences. There is a great challenge that most people incur when they have a disability since they are unable to carry out their chores without having to rely on a helper. This can be even worse if you do not have someone close to help you get or do something. It is for this reason that the government is aiming at helping most of the people with disabilities to be able to lead their lives normally and without facing many issues.
With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme, the government is aiming at making sure that people appreciate the disabled and without them feeling as though they are not part of the society. Basically, with this insurance scheme every person living with disability will feel more comfortable and a part of the society in which they reside. It helps every person with equality as it does not use selective methods on how they are awarded. If you are within Armadale and have been disabled, then you should make it a point to go and file your application so that you can get the much-needed help.
Since the scheme has already partnered with healthcare facilities, the wellbeing of the participants is going to be properly catered for and will increase their chances of getting job opportunities. Once you apply for the NDIS and it is successful, you will be able to enjoy a lot of benefits such as easy access to medical facilities in your area that are authorized. You will no longer have to worry about being able to attend checkups and other medical treatment that you may be undergoing since they are easily available in your area of residence.
Another advantage of applying for NDIS support is that it is going to provide people with disability and their family regular care, support, therapy and equipment they need to be able to run their daily errands without much of a problem. The scheme is really going to benefit people who have not been able to afford any equipment that they require to be able to carry out their chores with much ease. It will give them the opportunity to feel more independent and with minimal reliance on other people around them.
