What is Assistance with Daily Life

NDIS Assistance with Daily Life is a funding sub-category under Core Supports. The aim of this NDIS budget is to cover the support you need in everyday personal activities so that you can live as independently as possible in your home and community.

As each person living with a disability has different needs, the type of daily support participants receive will vary from person to person. Assistance with Daily Life NDIS support is therefore tailored to you and your unique needs. This way everyone receives the level of help they require to lead a more independent life.

What type of support is covered with Assistance with Daily Life

When it comes to NDIS Assistance with Daily Life, we are talking about all the tasks and activities we do on a day to day basis. This includes things like getting out of bed and showering, eating meals, getting ready for the day, and heading out into the community.

Here are some examples of what Assistance with Daily Life support might look like:

  • Help with getting ready for the day (getting out of bed, showering, getting dressed etc.)
  • Help with household chores (doing the dishes, cleaning or gardening)
  • Help with preparing your meals or covering the costs of meal delivery services
  • Help with getting around the community and using public transport

This NDIS funding category is designed to support you in all these things, however little or much you need. You can have support workers assist you in these tasks, supervise as you learn to be more independent, or do them for you if you are unable to carry out any tasks yourself.

The type of support under Core Supports relates to assistance that is necessary and required for a participant to complete daily activities, where without this support they would not be able to do it on their own comfortably or safely – therefore covering the cost of a support worker to help them. The type of support under Capacity Building relates to building a participants skillset so they are able to develop independent living skills and reduce the level of support required on a day to day basis – therefore covering the cost of assessments, therapy and training.
