What is NDIS assistance with daily life

NDIS assistance with daily life provides assistance or supervision of personal tasks during day-to-day life that enables the participant to live as independently as possible. These supports are provided individually to participants and can be provided in a range of environments, including your own home.

If you’re not sure if you need Assistance with Daily Living or Supported Independent Living, talk to us about your needs. Our experienced and qualified staff can help you find the right support at the right time. Find out what is included in NDIS support budgets.
