Many NDIS support plans include a budget for carers. These workers assist with personal care and other health and lifestyle activities. As you get to know your carers and they get to know you, they will help make your daily life more manageable and enjoyable.
The main benefit of self-managing your NDIS support fund is that you have full autonomy over your team and how you utilise your support workers. This does mean though, that it is up to you to engage your team as an employer, pay them and coordinate their schedules.
