As of the 1st of February this year NDIS has made some changes to the price guide structure used by NDIS providers.

As per a recommendation from the Independent Pricing Review, a Very High Intensity pricing tier has been introduced for people with complex needs. This allows providers to charge a higher rate for supports that require staff with more skill and experience. With this being the case, many providers and participants who require very high intensity care may need to look at recalculating their budgets and rewriting their services agreements. Participants may need to reduce their supports or increase their spending accordingly as there is no indication of packages being scaled up in accordance with the changes.

Dementia is not one specific disease, but a collection of symptoms caused by disorders that affect the brain. Some of the common symptoms include:

  • Memory loss
  • Confusion
  • A change in personality
  • Withdrawal and apathy
  • The loss of ability to perform normal everyday tasks

Caring for someone with Dementia can be a challenging task for many reasons.

The role of a Direct Support Worker is to help maintain a clients well being and independence in their own home and in the community. They do this by providing a range of care and support services such as personal care, help with mobility, transport, domestic duties or just someone to talk to.  A client may include people with disabilities, the elderly or someone with special needs.

Direct Support Workers are also referred to as caregivers, personal assistants or care workers.
