Living with a disability does not mean that a person has to compromise on their independence and life goals. Disability support schemes around the globe are helping people with disabilities to pursue employment opportunities, economic independence, personal hobbies, self-sufficiency and improved quality of life in general. The National Disability Insurance Scheme has helped open up new avenues in life to its participants through Core Supports like Assistance with Daily Living.
Assistance with Daily Living is a support category that helps the NDIS participants to carry out daily personal activities, household chores like mowing the lawn, cooking, cleaning and assistance with their medical needs etc. Having a capable support worker around to help them with these activities will drastically improve the living conditions of people with disabilities. They no longer have to hold themselves back from applying for a job or joining higher education because these support workers will always be there to attend to their disability needs. Assistance with Daily Living is available at two levels: Standard and Higher Intensity. When the participant has complex health care needs, they may need the help of a support worker who has pertinent qualifications and experience. In those cases, higher intensity assistance is recommended. Registered NDIS service providers like Aastha ensure that the person with the disability becomes independent over time rather than being dependent on the support systems all their life. Through customised care plans and constant encouragement, we help our clients conquer their NDIS goals.
Breaking the disability barriers and living the life you want is no longer a battle that you have to fight alone. Help is available for the NDIS participants at every step in the process. Contact us today to begin your journey towards an independent life.
A recent addition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Psycho-social recovery coach, was added after realizing the importance of mental well-being in the recovery plan of a participant. A psycho-social recovery coach is support available to people who have disabilities as a result of mental health issues. Under this service, the mental health specialist will help the participant make progress in their daily lives by providing non-clinical mental health services.

The Recovery coach is a support staff that works closely with the participant and hence the understanding and smooth communication between the participant and the coach is the primary factor in achieving the purpose of this support. The recovery coach will need to conduct one or multiple sessions with the participant to share information and make an assessment. A Psycho-social recovery coach needs to be empathetic to the participant’s psyche. Hence, you need to be careful to choose the right person and provider for you.
