Understanding The NDIS And Their Providers

Updated: Aug 10


The Growing Need for Independent Living Carers


The growing need for independent living carers is a result of the progression of diseases such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons. These conditions affect the brain and mobility, meaning those affected need more assistance to live independently.


Independent living carers are not nurses or care assistants, they provide daily services that allow older adults to live independently and with more freedom at home. They can be paid by the hour or on a monthly basis depending on what service they offer.


What are the Leading Organisation Providing Services?


There are many organisations providing services, but these three are leading the way.

NDIS is a government-funded organisation that provides services for people with disabilities.


Care providers are organisations that provide care and support to people with disabilities and their families.


Older Australians Services Australia (OASA) is an Australian not-for-profit organisation that provides information, advice and advocacy for older Australians.


What is an NDIS Registered Provider?


An NDIS Registered Provider is a provider of disability services that has been accredited by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to provide NDIS funded services.


The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a scheme which provides funding for people with significant and permanent disability, aged 18 years or older, who need help with daily living activities and/or work-related support.



Why Choose an NDIS Registered Provider?


NDIS registered providers are one of the most important pieces to the NDIS puzzle. They are responsible for providing services and support to people with disabilities and their families.


The NDIS Act sets out that an NDIS provider must be a registered organisation, which means they have met all the needed requirements - this includes having a board and staff with suitable expertise.


Independent Living Care is registered as an NDIS provider and can offer a range of services to suit your needs, with inclusions according to your NDIS plan.
