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.
It takes a small amount of effort but going with the self-management option for NDIS support can optimise your time and ensure your daily life runs more smoothly. Not only this, you have the ability to create a team that really gels for you.
Once you have found the carers who suit you, you will need to set up a system that lets everyone know their role and roster, and which makes it easier to manage payments and be compliant as an employer. This is where Real Support Choices comes in.
When you access Real Support Choices by creating an account and taking advantage of the free trial, you will notice that rostering software for disability support is built in.
The tool lets you create a completely customised calendar of shifts. You can share shifts directly with support staff, making it easy to keep everyone informed and up to date. This platform is intuitive, efficient and built specifically to help people self-manage their NDIS plan.
Once you have registered via the RSC website, you simply invite your chosen team to connect via the app. Enter your roster for the following week each Sunday and your carers will be able to see when they are expected to work with you.
Using Real Support Choices, carers are paid on a Thursday. To ensure payment takes place, you simply upload an ABA file (supplied by Real Support Choices) to your bank account. So all carers are paid with 1 bank transaction.
Managing NDIS support carer payments can feel overwhelming for those who haven’t been an employer before. When you sign up with Real Support Choices, our team will make it simple by taking care of the following:
In addition, to making payments a smoother, easier process, Real Support Choices will provide you with insurance contacts for Workcover and Public Liability, and give you a “Carer Employment Pack” to send to your carers.
Real Support Choices makes self-management the only real choice for your NDIS support. With this helpful and affordable online tool, you have all the flexibility of self-management with the ease of plan-management. Our support team is also on call to explain any elements you don’t understand. You can contact us on 1300 95 59 95.
