To access disability support services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia, you must:
⦁ be aged under 65
⦁ have a permanent disability that affects your everyday life
⦁ meet residency requirements
If you think that you are eligible for the NDIS, you should contact NDIS to get an NDIS Access Request Form.
If Yonger Onset Dementia is your primary disability, Adapt Lifestyle Support can assist you with your application to access the NDIS. We are experienced in completing health professional assessments and reports to support your application, and we will do this free of charge.
After your NDIS application has been approved, you will be invited to a planning meeting with an NDIS Planner to create your NDIS plan. In this meeting, decisions would be made about the types of services, hours of support and therefore the amount of funding you will receive. We can also meet with you ahead of your planning meeting, to talk about the types of support services and goals you may benefit from, and how to request these in your planning meeting.
