Assistance with daily life

Assistance with daily life is designed to empower you to live your best life, as autonomously as possible. It covers the cost of hiring support for everyday life activities such as:

  • Personal care (showering, dressing, etc.)
  • Domestic tasks (cooking, cleaning, gardening, etc.)
  • Making household decisions

Whether you need physical assistance with these tasks, or simply want someone to supervise, our assistance with daily life services are designed to make everyday life easier for you.

This category of NDIS Core Supports can also be accessed outside your home. For example, should you require support in the community, at school, work, TAFE or university, we are here to help.

Funding for therapies are generally flexible. This means, if you have used all the funding in your plan for a specific therapy, then you can transfer it to your Core Supports budget in order to cover the costs. Please note that price limits will still apply, see our NDIS Price Guide for more information. 

Where it is considered reasonable and necessary, Core Support NDIS can cover gardening and other household activities such as cleansing and maintenance.
