Personal Activity Services

People living with disabilities can have many specialised needs that require additional support to perform Personal Activities. Performing these daily tasks successfully can mean the world to someone living with a disability.Whether you or your loved one experiences a disability, there are ample support services available with funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to ensure you live your life to the fullest. Let’s take a look at exactly what this means and how you can make the most of your opportunities.

How Can Personal Activities Services Help Someone With a Disability?

If you or your loved one is living with a disability, Personal Activities can be challenging in many ways depending on the type and extent of your disability. Getting ready in the morning, getting exercise, or going out to meet and interact with other community members can have significant impacts on your physical and mental health.

Having the ability to get ready, get out of the house, and experience a change of scenery can also alter your mood and mindset. Depending on a person’s disability, Personal Activities such as finding new hobbies or choosing a weekly exercise regimen can change your attitude, boost your immune system and improve your mental health. By finding ways to participate in society, people experience less anxieties, more self-confidence, and ultimately are able to live more fulfilling lives.

Are you or a loved one eligible for NDIS funding?

Do I Qualify For Personal Activities Services Under the NDIS?

There are many factors that the NDIS considers before deciding on your available funding. The support service needs to be reasonable and necessary to help you achieve your goals, purpose, and aspirations.

Personal Activities supports are considered by the degree to which they maximise independence and functional skills of the participant or whether alternative arrangement or supports could be met in a less intrusive manner. If aids and equipment with the provision of training are possible alternatives, they may be used to increase your independence.

The specifics of your NDIS Plan will determine how you can use the available funds. If you’re not sure if your needs fall under this category, we can help you clarify with the NDIA exactly what is and isn’t covered under your personalised plan.

What Personal Activities Services are Available Under NDIS?

Personal Activities Supports relate to assistance with daily activities whether they’re needed because you live alone; or are undertaking social, educational, or employment activities; or during other time spent away from home. They can include assistance with or supervision of any personal tasks of daily living.

Personal Activities can also fall under the Core Supports or Capacity Building budget category under Improved Daily Living Skills. These can help to build a participant’s skillset with independent living skills and reduce the level of support required. This budget can cover assessment, training, and therapy.

The NDIS can provide you with funding to avail of Maple’s personal activities services if these are tasks you are unable to do yourself and if support will help you to live a happier, healthier, and more independent life.
