Introduction to Parkinson's Disease
Parkinson's Disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects a person’s movement initially, and their cognition later in the course of the illness. Symptoms can start gradually and can be different for everyone, though it is most common in older adults with the average age of onset being 60 years old.
People living with Parkinson’s will benefit from a range of different supports depending on the stage of the condition and their individual goals. Maple Community Services is well situated to provide extensive support services for people living with Parkinson’s.
Is Parkinson's Disease Covered by the NDIS?
If you or your loved one is under the age of 65 and living with Parkinson’s Disease, you may be eligible for funding from the NDIS to benefit from our support services. Parkinson’s Disease is under List B of NDIS eligibility of conditions primarily resulting in neurological impairment. This means that your specific functional abilities may need to be assessed to identify the appropriate level of support.
At Maple, we can help you navigate the system to see if you or your loved one qualifies for NDIS Parkinson’s Disease funding. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we have the capacity to provide comprehensive services to improve your quality of life.
What Can NDIS Fund For Parkinson's Disease?
The NDIS funds several critical services for people with Parkinson’s Disease. These include speech and occupational therapy, physiotherapy, personal care support, nutritional support, and behavioural support.
NDIS funding can even 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 partly by the level of severity.
