Introduction to Arthritis

Arthritis is a common condition, especially among older Australians, and is a major contributor to illness, pain, and disability across the country. According to the ABS National Health Survey 2017-18, Arthritis affects 3.6 million Australians amounting to 1 out of 7 people nationwide.

There are many therapies and medications that can help those who live with Arthritis to manage their illness and live full lives, but some people require additional support to fully participate in their lives and their community. Thankfully, there are ample support services available to ensure that people who live with Arthritis don’t have to sacrifice their quality of life.

Arthritis Information

While most people associate arthritis with growing old, it actually can affect people of any age. As we age, our bones and the joints between them undergo wear and tear that reflects the lifetime of stress placed on them. When that stress progresses to the point that we have pain or inflammation in our joints, that is called Arthritis.

Common types of Arthritis include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout, but arthritis can also be caused by many autoimmune diseases, genetic disorders, or even infection. People who suffer from arthritis experience inflammatory issues affecting the bones, muscles, and joints resulting in pain, stiffness, swelling, and redness.

What Can NDIS Fund For Arthritis?

The NDIS provides improved access to high quality, personalised, and innovative supports and services to enhance the independence, social, and economic participation of people with disability and their carers.

The NDIS funds several critical services for people with arthritis. Funded services include personal care support, community access support, nutritional support, skill development, transport, household tasks, and behavioural support. Plan Management and Support Coordination Funding are almost always offered to NDIS Participants when they receive their plan. The types and amounts of funding available are determined partly by the level of severity.

By partnering with Maple Community Services, we can help you outline your priorities and cater a support plan that provides the specific services you need, enabling you to lead a fulfilling life.

Common supports chosen by people with arthritis and funded by the NDIS include help with mobility, access to the community, assistance with daily living activities, and therapies such as hydrotherapy, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy

Is Arthritis Covered by the NDIS?

Yes! If you suffer from Arthritis, it is covered under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and you may be eligible for their funding to use for our support services. The eligibility and level of funding will depend on the severity of your functional disability and needs. Most types of Arthritis are categorised under List B for NDIS funding. It may require further functional assessment prior to being approved for NDIS funding.

At Maple, we can assist you in the assessment process to see if you or your loved one qualifies for NDIS Arthritis Benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we have the capacity to provide comprehensive services to enhance your quality of life.
