Home Personal Care Assistance in Melbourne

Depending on your needs, personal care can mean a lot of different things.

For some NDIS participants, all that’s required is having a personal care assistant a few times a week to help attend appointments or access the community. While for others, personal care assistance with tasks such as bathing, toileting and meals is a daily occurrence.

Whatever your needs, the skilled team of personal care workers at SeenCare can help you live independently and thrive in the community.

What is Personal Care?

Personal care can involve direct assistance and/or supervision of various personal tasks related to daily life.

While many people only think of personal care assistance as happening in the home, it can also be provided in various other settings.

Examples of non-home environments where personal care may be required include:

  • Social activities
  • Education and training
  • Holidays
  • Attending appointments
  • Employment and volunteering
  • Recreational activities, like playing sports

In general, if a disability support worker is helping you with personal activities like bathing and showering, or moving around your home or the community, they are providing personal care assistance.

Personal Support for People with Disabilities

If you are living with a disability that prevents you from undertaking certain personal care tasks independently, you can ask the NDIS for funding to purchase supports.

When evaluating your application for personal care assistance, the NDIS will consider:

  • Whether the support will maximise your independence and functional skills
  • If alternative arrangements could better meet your needs
  • If personal care will help you pursue the overall goals of your NDIS Plan

If approved for funding for personal care assistance, you can then approach an NDIS provider agency like SeenCare to hire a personal care worker.
