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 Boronia.
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 Boronia 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 Boronia will be happy to take any questions you may have.
Gentle Care Support Services offers a wide range of support services for people in Boronia. 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 Boronia 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 Boronia 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 Boronia, allowing them to help you choose services that are in your neighbourhood and that will work better for you and your family.

There are many challenges that people living with disabilities encounter on a daily basis which leave them at the mercy of their careers. Though there are those that have managed to get the right equipment to use with regard to their disability, there are dozens of others who cannot be able to afford such equipment hence they face a lot of challenges. It is for this purpose that NDIS was introduced to make sure that people with permanent and significant disability are properly taken care of without interfering with their current plan that they may have. Some of the objectives of introducing NDIS are discussed below.
If you qualify for NDIS in Boronia, it will allow you to experience independence, social and economic participation. One of the major objectives of the insurance scheme for the disabled is to make sure that they live their lives normally and with independence. They should be able to access both social and economic participation without feeling left out in Boronia. In most instances, the disabled are left feeling unsupported and unwanted in the society they live in, hence the reason they are being given an opportunity to lead their lives normally and without feeling being left out in the society. They now have a voice that allows them to feel appreciated and as being part of Boronia.
Once you are approved for NDIS, as a disabled person you will be provided with reasonable and necessary support including early intervention support. Though there are people who are not sure as to whether they should apply for NDIS, it is important that you consider applying if you are disabled as it will provide you with support that you may have been looking forward to getting. It will support you financially and also help you be able to acquire the necessary equipment that you need to lead a better life.
Another objective of NDIS is that it enables you to determine the kind of support you want to receive and how you want it offered to you. Though there are many people who are not certain about what kind of support they should ask for, through the representatives in Boronia, you can be able to come up with a plan and goals that are related to your disability and the best ways on how to achieve these goals. As the person living with the disability, you will be required to create your own personalized plan with the help of NDIS agents.
NDIS also aims at promoting provision of high quality and innovative supports to people living with disabilities within Boronia. It is not easy to provide support to the disabled without being able to know exactly what they are lacking hence the only way to be able to achieve great results is by letting them decide what kind of plan and goals they have. By doing so, you will then be able to determine how to best approach their problems and how they can be met. As a person living with a disability, this will help you greatly and change your life quite easily hence you should apply for it right away.
