Taking care of people with disabilities is a job that requires immense patience and responsibility on the part of their carers and family members. The majority of the time, it is a family member who is providing crucial care for differently-abled individuals instead of paid support workers. While they may be the biggest cheerleaders for their loved ones with disabilities, often these carers don’t ever receive a break from their responsibilities. In such circumstances, NDIS participants can make use of their funds to enable respite support for themselves which in turn will provide their carers with a short break from duties.
NDIS Respite support care involves short to medium-term stay away from home that will allow the NDIS participants to take a break from their daily routine and allow their carers to avoid burnout. This support involves the option to increase the social interaction of differently-abled individuals with people other than their family members by joining a new community group. They can even stay at their own homes in the absence of their family members with the help of temporary personal support and services.
Either way, it will help improve the well-being of your carers by providing them with a well-deserved break as well as by improving your bond with them. As usual, the NDIS will decide whether the NDIS Respite support that you are requesting is ‘reasonable and necessary’ before funding it in your NDIS plan.
