Experienced NDIS support workers servicing Melbourne and surrounding areas
Support workers form the foundation of the NDIS. They help participants with essential activities, like community access, shopping, cleaning, transport, social support and more.
At SeenCare, our disability support workers in Melbourne are part of a larger team, including in-home nurses and GPs. This means that in addition to helping with general activities of daily living, they can also assist with more complex health-related matters.
A support worker is a trained professional who helps you achieve your goals, increase independence, manage daily life and develop new skills.
While there are common tasks support workers help people with, each NDIS participant’s needs are unique. So the roles, responsibilities and skills of a support worker will vary from client to client.
What a support worker might be able to help you with depends on your NDIS funding.
In your NDIS plan, you might receive funding in your Core Supports budget and Capacity Building Supports budget for a range of things a disability support worker could help with.
Core Supports can include assistance with daily activities, such as cleaning, cooking, help with personal care and managing your day-to-day life. It might also involve transport and help to participate in social activities.
Capacity Building Supports help you build independence and specific skills. Funding might be provided to work on specific skills, like finding and keeping a job, health & well-being, relationships and activities of daily living.
An NDIS disability support worker wouldn’t necessarily help with everything in your Core Supports and Capacity Building budgets. But their skills and experience mean they are often a good fit to support you to achieve many of the goals in your plan.

If you have concerns about your support worker, try talking to them about it first if you feel comfortable. Otherwise, bring it up with a manager from their agency or one of your support people.
