Bright Light Care aims to provide a comfortable environment for safe movement and activates for people with disabilities. Our program for people with disabilities is designed to entertain to every aspect of a disabled patient’s life. We aim to make their journey to healing and coping as smooth and easy as possible. Our counseling services also aim to motivate the individuals and cater to their emotional needs. We also contribute to educating the family in dealing with grief and providing them with proper skills to adapt and adjust. Under NDIS, our role is to reach out to people in Australia who are facing permanent disabilities and provide them with appropriate health care and related services.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support to people with a disability via support packages that are tailored to individual needs.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has the task of implementing the NDIS. The NDIA commenced work in July 2013 following years of discussion about the need for a major reform of disability services in Australia.
Background to the NDIS
From 2013 to 2016, trial sites at selected locations across Australia were established. In Victoria, this was in the Barwon Area, which includes Geelong and its surrounds.
For people who did not live in the Barwon Area, existing services and disability supports continue until the NDIS is introduced in their area. In Victoria, the roll out of the NDIS will finish in 2019.
More information on Victoria’s roll out can be found at NDIS.
Access to the NDIS is not means-tested and has no impact on any Centrelink financial supports, such as the disability support pension and carers allowance.
