Genetic Condition Care & Support
Maple Community Services prioritises getting to know you in order to identify and achieve your goals. We help you set a course for greater independence with reliable support. There is no better NDIS provider than Maple Community Services in supporting patients with Genetic Conditions.
A Genetic Condition can be a debilitating illness and limit one’s abilities to participate in everyday activities. If you or your loved one is affected by a Genetic Condition, our Support Workers are highly skilled and trained to provide the assistance needed to live your life to the fullest.
Our extensive experience, capacity for 24/7 support, and community spirit sets us apart when it comes to Genetic Condition Support Services. Our strong family values and friendly staff give you and your loved ones peace of mind and exceptional support to pursue a happy, fulfilling, and independent life.
Introduction to Genetic Conditions
Genes that are passed from parent to child are the building blocks of heredity. Our genes are the carriers of DNA and hold the instructions for making proteins. A Genetic Condition is caused by a change in the DNA sequence of our genes or errant production of the proteins that they encode.
There are a variety of therapies and medications that can help those who live with Genetic Conditions but some people require additional support to fully participate in daily activities and their community. Thankfully, there are ample support services available to ensure that people who live with Genetic Conditions don’t have to sacrifice their quality of life.
What Does Our Genetic Condition Support Involve?
We have four main categories of support services that we can help you with if you have a Genetic Condition. Each type of support contributes to you or your loved one’s overall well-being and expands personal options to live a life that is most fulfilling.
Types of Genetic Condition Support Services
Our support services at Maple can meet your needs in a range of different ways; we begin early on and continue through your or your loved one’s life. At Maple, our Specialists understand Genetic Conditions and can arrange appropriate services to help you every step of the way.
Are Genetic Conditions Covered by the NDIS?
If you or your loved one have a disability resulting from a Genetic Condition, you may be eligible for NDIS funding. If you haven’t already, you or your representative will need to complete an access request form and provide evidence of the impact of your disability on your everyday functioning.
At Maple Community Services, we can assist you in the assessment process to see if you or your loved one qualifies for NDIS Genetic Condition benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we can provide comprehensive services to enhance your quality of life.
What Can NDIS Fund for Genetic Conditions?
The NDIS funds several critical services for people with disabilities resulting from Genetic Conditions. These include speech and occupational therapy, physiotherapy, personal care support, community access support, nutritional support, skill development, transport, household tasks, and behavioural support. NDIS funding can also provide sensory toys, holiday camps, or pay for a Support Worker to assist you or your loved one at home. Plan Management and Support Coordination Funding are almost always offered to NDIS Participants when they receive their plan. The types and amounts of funding available are determined by the severity of an individual’s disability.
For children younger than seven years of age, NDIS provides funding for early interventions, takes a family-centred approach, and helps families connect with Genetic Condition Service Providers. At Maple, we can assist you or your loved one with the NDIS application to secure the needed financial support.
