Assistance With Daily Life

Support with everyday activities and household tasks

Having support with everyday tasks such as getting ready for the day or cleaning the house allows you to live independently at home with assistance from our caring and experienced staff.

If you are an NDIS participant and have been approved for the support category ‘assistance with daily life’ in your NDIS plan, you can choose from supports below.

Support Categories

Each support category contains a number of services that you can choose from to help achieve your goals. You can use your budget for any of services within that support category, but you are unable to use this budget for services within another support category. In some cases, you may be approved for a specific support (rather than a category). In this case, you will need to use your budget for this specific service only. Read more about NDIS plans.

Flexibility of Services

With NDIS, you have the power to choose the services that best suit your needs and goals, including how services are delivered. Each of the services above can be tailored to your specific requirements, and changed as your needs change.

Why Ozcare?

With 20 years’ experience providing disability services, we focus on your strengths to support you to achieve your goals. To provide consistent personalised care, we make sure that you continue to see familiar faces for each of your appointments so you can get to know your carers and feel comfortable with them.

Cost of Supports

The NDIA publishes a price list, which sets out the cost of each support. This is the price you will pay no matter which provider you choose. In some cases, a price for a support may not be fixed, and we can provide you with a quote that the NDIA will approve. Read more about NDIS costs.
