The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides direct funding to people with disabilities to access support and services which helps them to reduce the impact of disability in their daily lives. Depending on the disability needs of the participant, they can access either standard support or high-intensity daily personal activities support to navigate their daily routine. High-intensity support can only be provided by support workers who are competent and skilled enough to manage the complex disability-related health needs of the participants. This may include providing support for managing diabetes, complex wound management, catheter care, stoma care, handling the risk of seizures and much more.
The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission has laid down strict guidelines regarding the skills and knowledge expected from the support workers who are delivering high-intensity daily personal support. It is the responsibility of the service providers to ensure that their support workers are capable and qualified to provide high-intensity support.
Seeking professional expertise to carry out such complex daily activities will ensure accountability and make sure that the support is delivered safely. Professional and trained support workers will be equipped to handle any complications that arise while providing high-intensity support and always adhere to NDIS Practice Standards. They will carefully monitor the health status of the participants and document all the procedures. Therefore, participants can access high-quality care in the comfort of their homes or any other
environment of their choice.
