Personal Care Services

Personal Care is fundamental to your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It includes eating and drinking well, daily hygiene including bathing and oral care, regular bowel and bladder functions, and much more. While we may take these personal care tasks for granted, people living with disabilities may not have the ability to perform these to keep themselves looking and feeling good.Whether you or your loved one experiences a disability, there are ample support services available with funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to ensure you live your life to the fullest.

How Can Personal Care Services Help Someone With a Disability?


People living with disabilities have varying levels of physical, mental, and emotional functions depending on the nature of their disability and these can have a drastic impact on the tasks they’re able to carry out on a regular basis. Nonetheless, there are some tasks that are absolutely essential to preserving our health and ensuring we can live full lives. Among these, Personal Care functions are a bare necessity that lays the groundwork for how we can perform in all other aspects of our lives.If you or a loved one is living with a disability, chances are there are certain everyday activities that can be infeasible. Eating well, performing personal hygiene, getting dressed, and using the restroom all contribute to an individual’s senses of self and dignity.

Do I Qualify For Personal Care Services Under the NDIS?

There are many factors that the NDIS considers before deciding on your available funding. The support service needs to be reasonable and necessary to help you achieve your goals, purpose, and aspirations.Personal Care Supports are considered by the degree to which they maximise independence and functional skills of the participant or whether alternative arrangement or supports could be met in a less intrusive manner. If aids and equipment with the provision of training are possible alternatives, they may be used to increase your independence.The specifics of your NDIS Plan will determine how you can use the available funds. If you’re not sure if your needs fall under this category, we can help you clarify with the NDIA exactly what is and isn’t covered under your personalised plan.
