Allied health services are a vital lifeline for people living with disabilities across Australia. This multidisciplinary approach means better coordination and support across various channels, which ultimately means a better care plan. At Health Journey Partner, we provide a range of community-based allied health services to NDIS participants. So, what is the NDIS, how can they help, and how are we bridging that gap between patients and services?
What is The NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme helps a wide range of Australians living with a disability gain access to the support they need. It is all about providing that bridge between those in need and those that can help.
For many, this will be as simple as getting in touch with the right medical professional to get the ball rolling on diagnoses, treatments, and support plans. However, there is also the opportunity to connect with other branches of support service, such as community outreach, social clubs, and educational facilities.
Who Can Benefit from NDIS Support?
Because there is such breadth in the NDIS’ level of care and understanding, they can help thousands of people with complex care needs. NDIS support is available to those that meet their criteria. Local coordinators can help those between 7-65 access appropriate care, provided they meet residency requirements and have a permanent impairment. Remember, this does not have to be an obvious physical impairment. They also support people with conditions that are cognitive, neurological, sensory, intellectual, and psychosocial.
How Can Health Journey Partner Help You?
Health Journey Partner, a NDIS registered organization, is proud to provide vital allied health services to those eligible for care in our area. We do home visits to guide participants through various therapeutic services designed to improve skills, mobility, and overall quality of life. These services include:
- Occupational Therapy
- Exercise Physiology
- Speech Therapy
- Psychology and Counselling
This shows the importance of not just physical therapy for managing physical disabilities but also mental health care for those needing it. It is important that participants don’t have to struggle alone.
Accessing Support in Your Area
If you are an NDIS participant struggling to gain the support you need or perhaps a primary carer in need of better support, Health Journey Partner may be able to help. We offer at-home services across the region, from The Hills District to Greater Parramatta and up to Macquarie Park. This means face-to-face care and one-on-one treatments in the comfort of your home.
We also encourage those outside of this area, especially in regional and rural areas, to contact us about the option of telehealth services. The important thing is that we make that connection and get people on the right path.
