The world may have been turned on its head, but we have been gathering the troops (and information) to help you during these uncertain and challenging times
Here are the top 5 things you need to know from MyCareSpace.
1. Where to Find Support Workers
We speak to many NDIS Providers who are open for business and continuing to provide support. Support providers are following COVID19 health and safety guidelines and offering non-contact support services (this includes services like picking up groceries or medication, online chats and videos and even phone support.

2. Help Finding Services - Support Coordination for all
Did you know that all participants now have access to funds for a Support Coordinator in their Plan. The NDIS has created line items for support coordination under the CORE section.
This means that if you have available funds in your core, you can use them to have a support coordintor help support you during this time.
This support option is available until 25 Sept.
This new buzzword simply means delivering health services online or over the phone. Most therapists, psychologists, OT and Speech Therapists are delivering their services using video in addition to or instead of face to face visits.
With the introduction of telehealth, you dont need to worry about where the provider is located! You just need to be able to get online.
