Introduction to Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease. This means your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body tissues, causing a chronic inflammatory disorder that affects the lining of your joints. The result is painful swelling that can eventually digress into erosion of bones and joint deformities.
Our support services at Maple can have a life changing impact on those living with this condition.
Is Rheumatoid Arthritis Covered by the NDIS?
If you suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis, it is covered under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and you may be eligible for their funding to utilise our support services. The eligibility and level of funding will depend on the severity of your functional disability and needs. Rheumatoid Arthritis is categorised under List B for NDIS funding, and you may require further functional assessment prior to being approved for NDIS funding.
At Maple, we can assist you in the assessment process to see if you or your loved one qualifies for NDIS Rheumatoid Arthritis benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we have the capacity to provide comprehensive services to enhance your quality of life.
What Can NDIS Fund For Rheumatoid Arthritis?
The NDIS provides improved access to high quality, personalised, and innovative supports and services to enhance the independence, social, and economic participation of people living with disabilities and their carers.
The NDIS funds several critical services for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Funded services include personal care support, community access support, nutritional support, skill development, transport, household tasks, and behavioural support. 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 severity of one’s disability.
By partnering with Maple Community Services, we can help you outline your priorities and cater a support plan that provides the specific services you need, enabling you to lead a fulfilling life.
Common supports chosen by people with Rheumatoid Arthritis and funded by the NDIS include help with mobility, access to the community, assistance with daily living activities, and therapies such as hydrotherapy, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy.
