What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a revolutionary Australian scheme designed to support people with a disability. The main aim is to provide the necessary support and services to help individuals achieve their goals, enhance their independence, and participate actively in the community and employment.

How Does NDIS Support Coordination Fit In?

Support coordination is a vital part of the NDIS, helping you make the most of your NDIS plan. A support coordinator will help you understand your plan, connect with the right providers, and find the best ways to use your funded supports. At Kinder Caring, we ensure that your journey with the NDIS is as effective and fulfilling as possible.

Real Stories of Impact

  • James’s Journey: Meet James, a 35-year-old with cerebral palsy. When James first came to us, he was overwhelmed by his NDIS plan and unsure how to proceed. Our support coordinator, Sarah, worked with James to break down his plan into manageable steps. Together, they connected with suitable therapists and community activities, aligning with James’s passion for music and social engagement. Today, James is not only more confident in managing his plan but is also an active member of his community choir, showcasing the transformative power of tailored support.
  • Anna’s Achievement: Anna, diagnosed with a learning disability, found it challenging to navigate her NDIS plan and engage with the community. Our support coordinator, Linda, worked with Anna to identify her strengths and interests, leading to her joining a local art class and a women’s group. These steps have significantly boosted Anna’s confidence and social skills.

We are so pleased with the care Dad has been receiving from Kinder Caring, especially from Aster. She has shown professionalism and dedication.

Kinder Caring has been exceptional in their service. They provided a wonderful carer who is exceptional at what she does.

A huge thank you to all the nurses at Kinder Caring. Having your expertise, caring attitude and ongoing advice meant we did not have to place Dad into a nursing home or send him to hospital and therefore his last days spent with Mum and the family were very special for us all.
