NDIS & RESPITE CARE
Your NDIS Partner
Australasia Care has been a preferred provider of the National Disability Insurance Scheme in Queensland since early . We have a major presence in most Brisbane, Ipswich, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast areas and are NDIS ready. Let us guide you through the process to more freedom, greater control with personal choice and individualised funding
What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The NDIS supports people with a permanent and significant disability. They will work with you to identify supports you need to live your life that may help you achieve your goals, including independence, involvement in your community, education, employment and health. The NDIS gives you more choice and control over how, when and where your supports are provided.
How can you access NDIS?
* You need to meet the following requirements:
* Have a permanent disability that significantly affects your ability to take part in everyday activities.
* Be aged less than 65 when you first access the scheme
* Be an Australian citizen, live in Australia and hold a permanent visa or hold a protected special category visa
* Live in one of the NDIS areas
You can use the ‘Access Checklist” on the website to find out if you might be able to access the NDIS. Otherwise contact Australia Care and we will guide you.
* Once NDIS has confirmed you can access the scheme, a planner will meet you
* Together, you will discuss your needs, goals and aspirations
* This may take more than one meeting and you can bring someone with you
* Using this information, your planner will develop a plan that meets your needs

RESPITE CARE (SHORT TERM CARE) AVAILABLE
Feel at ease knowing your loved one will receive individual care, tailored to their specific needs, in the safe and secure surrounds of our Brisbane communities. Family and friends are always welcome and with no set visiting hours, and our residents and staff are always on hand for a chat.
Respite care supports you and your carer by giving you both a break for a short period of time. It can help give you and your carer the time and space to do things independently.
You can access respite care for a few hours, a few days, or longer - depending on your needs, eligibility, and what services are available in the area. It can be accessed in your home, out in the community, or in an aged care home.
Respite care can be planned in advance; for instance, if your carer is planning a trip or has an appointment to attend. It is also available in emergencies - if your carer has an unplanned hospital stay, for example.
If you need emergency respite service, kindly contact our team on 1300 140 594
Situations where emergency respite care might be needed, include:
death of a primary carer
major illness of a primary carer
an urgent situation that makes it difficult for your carer to look after you.
