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

If you are a person living with a disability in Dandenong, there is a sign of hope through the government’s new insurance scheme that is aimed at helping those with disabilities to lead better lives. The National Disability Insurance Scheme has been introduced so that anyone living with a disability can have an equal opportunity to receive help and support from the government. There is nothing more important than ensuring that people living with disabilities are properly taken care of and that they can be able to enjoy the freedom to do things without depending on others. In Dandenong, it is important that you contact the nearest NDIS representative who is going to help you to be able to receive the necessary support that you may not have had in a long time.
The main benefit of registering for NDIS is that it is that you will create a tailored plan for yourself. When you are seeking help as a disabled person, there are many challenges that you may face since not many people are willing to help the disabled. Even though there are many organizations that offer help and assistance to the disabled, feeling totally independent can come with a lot of benefits which you can take advantage of. The introduction of NDIS is meant to make life better for people with disabilities hence you should apply for it without any hesitation.
Through NDIS you will also be able to access the community services and health facilities without being afraid of the charges that you will incur as you will be fully covered through the scheme. Most people are always afraid to visit facilities as they will feel unwanted and unappreciated which should not be the case as when you are covered through the fund, everything will be catered for you by the government. You will be able to access all the facilities in your community without any problems which you may have faced previously.
It is also important to note that the government is not going to fund your day-to-day cost related to your disability. Even though there are many problems that people are facing, it is important that you understand what is going to be covered and what is not covered. On your daily expenses, the government is not going to fund you to cater for such expenses and you will be required to cater for such costs on your own without any limits. Most people think that they will receive monthly stipends through NDIS which is not true and thus you should not expect to receive it.
Through NDIS the government is aiming at promoting the provision of high quality and innovative supports to people with disability. The government has had a rough time trying to figure out the best ways through which they can be able to properly take care of people with disabilities hence the introduction of NDIS ensures that they are well taken care of all through their life. The kind of support you are going to receive is going to make sure that you no longer have to rely on other people as you will be more independent and can be able to do things the way you want to do them without much of a problem.
