What is Assistive Technology in the NDIS?

Posted by Janet Gibbins on Nov 21, 2018 5:35:14 AM

 Assistive Technology, also known as AT, is the equipment a person might use to help them with everyday tasks that they wouldn’t be able to do on their own, or makes it easier and safer to do. For a person living with disability, this might be equipment or systems which help with moving around the home or community, communicating with other people, processing information and other daily tasks. Every person living with a disability has different needs. AT may be included in your NDIS plan if it is identified as a reasonable and necessary support that meets your needs, and supports you to achieve better outcomes in life.

Getting Ready for the NDIS in Five Simple Steps!

Posted by Janet Gibbins on Aug 7, 2018 5:43:12 PM

Its time to find out when the NDIS is coming to the Sunshine Coast and surrounds.
We should all be receiving or have already received a letter.
If not, please call the NDIS on 1800 800 110 and ask if they have your details.
If they don’t have your details, you will need to complete a request to access form.


  1. Learn if you might be able to access the NDIS. Accessing the NDIS depends on your age, residency and disability. Are you under 65 years old? Are you an Australian resident? Do you have a permanent disability?

  2. Think about your life now, your current informal and formal supports, and what is working and what might need to change. Informal supports include the help you get from family and friends. Formal supports are supports you might pay for or get through a program.

  3. Identify your strengths, interests and challenges. Consider your goals or what you might like to achieve.

  4. Write these things down and collect any reports, assessments or information you might find helpful for when the NDIS comes to you. 



Remember, an NDIS partner working in your community will help you get ready when it is time for you to join the NDIS.

Great work Linda along with running a very busy company. How do you think this will assist you in your role with Advanced Care?

Whilst I am immensely proud of what we have achieved over our 15 years in business, our focus now needs to be on progressing our company to the next level through strong and effective leadership.  The program was instrumental in me developing a clear plan for our team for the future, and I am excited to start putting it all into practice. I am confident the skills I have gained will enable us to lead a resilient, high performing, and empowered team of Care Workers who will themselves develop as individuals during their time with our company.  I highly recommend this program to Women in a Leadership role, in addition to the valuable and comprehensive content – it was a joy to meet, and work with a group of inspiring women from a broad range of industries"

Changing Home Care Providers - What do you need to do?

Posted by Janet Gibbins on Apr 3, 2018 6:39:54 PM

As the face of the Australian home care industry has begun to change. If you’ve caught wind of this, you might have found yourself asking for yourself asking (or on behalf of an elderly friend or relative ) “am I getting the best care package for my money?” or "what hours of support does it qualify them/me for?"  Depending on your provider this can vary!
