Am I eligible for funding?
People living with disability (under 65 years, or under 50 for ATSI) may be eligible for government funding through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to help pay for support services .
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports eligible people under 65 who have a diagnosed disability. Click on the link to find out more about the scheme, the eligibility criteria and the types of support available here: http://www.ndis.gov.au/
Frail older people (65 and over or 50 and over for ATSI) may be eligible for in-home support through either the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) or for higher needs, a Home Care Package, which enables them to continue living at home.
Your first point of contact is My Aged Care - please phone 1800 200 422 or visit www.myagedcare.gov.au. They will conduct a short assessment over the phone, and arrange for an in-home assessment by the Regional Assessment Team. You will receive an Aged Care (AC) number and you can then choose Adssi In-home Support to deliver the support you have been assessed as needing.
If you're eligible for subsidised in-home care, you can 'top up' with extra support at any time - simply call us on 1300 578 478 and we can arrange this fee-for-service support as a one-off, or ongoing if you need it.
If you’re a Department of Veterans’ Affairs client (DVA), you must be referred by your doctor. Services offered by Adssi to DVA clients include Occupational Therapy (OT) and Home Modifications and Maintenance:
