The NDIS has finally come to the sunshine coast region. The idea behind it, is to help support Australians whom have a permanent disability that affects their everyday life. It targets Australian citizens or resident visa holders aged 7-64. Other services assist under 7 and over 64.
When you make an appointment with your regular GP to complete the Access Request form please inform reception so they can allocate an appropriate amount of time for the form to be completed. Please bring any information you have about your support needs, and in particular, services/items that you are hoping to apply for. The NDIS will only cover aids eg wheelchairs, items like prosthetic limbs, home modifications, personal care or domestic care to assist people exiting the health system to live independently or therapies needed because of your impairment. Your condition needs to be fully treated to apply to the NDIS.
