Whether for yourself or for a loved one, navigating the health needs of our elderly can be complicated and frustrating. From complex mental and cognitive conditions, to frequent hospital admissions and multiple health diagnoses, means support can be challenging.
If you are having a little trouble with your usual, every day tasks and feel that some support could help improve your health and well-being, then NDIS could be right for you.
The NDIS exists to support Australians aged between 7 years and 65 years living with a disability. The aim is to support people with a disability, with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and even, schools. Fundamentally, it supports people to remain living in the community or other settings that are suitable for their age.
NDIS is recommended for those requiring an occasional or lower level of support and services. There are four levels of funding:
The intention of NDIS is to support and maintain your independence rather than doing it for you.

At Age Up Health we only provide services for older people, so it's something we do very well. Our specialised staff are equipped to provide the very best care, catering especially for those clients with complex health conditions such as dementia, Parkinson's, diabetes, mental health as well as social or family complexities.
Our dedicated care teams are lead by a nurse who is experienced in supporting older people in the community. Your nurse can manage all aspects of your care, including staffing, reporting and liaising with hospitals and other health professionals.
To be eligible for NDIS funding support, the options available to you depend on your situation.
Note: The CoS programme is no longer open to new clients.

" Well, I'm getting what I asked for, so that's good. Joyce is perfect...well...aside from being a Pommy! (he joked). We talked a lot on her first visit, and I even showed her where the cups and tea and coffee things were: I don't show anybody that! But seriously, I am very happy!"
