Introduction to Stroke Care
A Stroke, also known as Cerebrovascular Accident, occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced. This can happen when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures or a blood clot blocks the blood flow, preventing oxygen and nutrients from reaching brain tissue.
If the Stroke you or your loved one suffered was relatively small, the effects may be overcome with the right support and you may be able to live an almost completely normal life after this event. However, a more severe Stroke may leave you with permanent disabilities as a result of the injury to certain parts of your brain. If this is the case, there are many interventions that can be implemented by our Stroke Support Specialists to greatly improve your quality of life.
Is Stroke Care Covered by the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is available throughout Australia to anyone under the age of 65 who can demonstrate they have a permanent intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive, or psychosocial disability. The overall aim of the NDIS is to improve an injured person’s ability to function in all aspects of daily living and, over time, gain more independence.
If you or your loved one has one or more of these disabilities as a result of a Stroke and needs professional support to manage their injury, you may be eligible for support under this scheme.
At Maple Community Services, we can walk you through the assessment process to see if you qualify for NDIS Stroke Care benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we will facilitate the process and have the full capacity to provide the comprehensive support services you need.
What Can NDIS Fund For Stroke Care?
The NDIS funds several critical services for people who have disabilities resulting from a Stroke. These include personal care support, community access support, nutritional support, skills 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 vary by the severity of the disability or dysfunction.
By partnering with Maple Community Services, together, we can help you identify your priorities and cater a support plan that provides the specific services you need, enabling you to lead a fulfilling life.
