The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers. The scheme is designed to provide disability support throughout a participants lifetime by focusing on investing in people with a disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.
The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.
For all Australians, if their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability they will get the support they need.
The NDIS helps people with disability to Access mainstream services and supports. Assistance from the NDIS is not means tested and has no impact on income support such as the Disability Support Pension and Carers Allowance.
Patient Handling is a registered provider under the scheme. We work closely with our client, their families, our clients therapists and NDIS case managers to achieve results that will enhance quality of life on an ongoing basis.
Our Ceiling Hoists, Molift Patient Lifters, TA Power Wheelchairs and range of independent living products have all be provided to participants under the NDIS.
