National Disability Insurance Scheme

So, just what is the NDIS and what does it stand for? Well, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an initiative by the Australian Government which provides $22 billion in annual funding to people living with disability; both permanent and significant. Whilst the scheme can provide great financial relief, it can also be confusing when it comes to determining what you can claim and what funding you can receive.

From the time I made contact with Jason from Respite Services Australia and arranged an interview, I new that this was the place for our Granddaughter. On viewing the facility we immediately felt the warmth and energy within the home. The process was seamless on admission and the staff very co operative and attentive to our requests. Our Granddaughter enjoyed her stay with comments like I've made some new friends, food was great, good bed, with many activities on offer and I loved the karaoke machine. The staff were very helpful and respectful toward us and our Granddaughter. I would recommend this facility and have already made plans for future visits.

My father landed in the ICU quite suddenly after Christmas and we needed emergency assistance and care for my brother. Respite Services Australia delivered on exceptional care and support for him, and really showed their level of compassion and understanding during what was a difficult time for our family. After our father passed, we continued accessing their services for my brother and the support the workers and management team have given has been second to none. It has really felt like family caring for family. I could not recommend them high enough.

Respite Services Australia was an absolute lifesaver in a crisis. Desperate for emergency respite for my sister (while both parents were critically ill) Jess, Paul and the team couldn’t have been more accommodating and supportive of my entire family. They made our very first experience with respite a seamless process and the care for my sister has been compassionate, intuitive and intelligent. I highly endorse this excellent facility with contemporary resources and look forward to a continued relationship with them as our family transition into a new phase of our life. Eternally grateful.
