Disability Support at Home Carers Direct

Home Carers Direct can help you create a disability support team to provide you with a range of support services including assistance with daily activities such as eating, showering, toileting, or help in and around the home such as cleaning and gardening.

The support workers on Home Carers Direct have a range of qualifications to suit your needs, and the platform empowers you to build a capable support team that you feel comfortable with, including support workers who share your interests, hobbies, languages etc. Using Home Carers Direct is affordable and flexible. And all carers using the platform have passed national police record and referee checks, have had their qualifications verified and are insured.

If you receive disability funding from the government (for example through the NDIA), then depending on how you receive your funds, there are ways for you to hire carers on the Home Carers Direct platform.

· If you are self-managing your funding, you will be able to seek reimbursement for the care you pay for directly from the NDIA by leveraging the easy invoicing and reporting system that has been developed by Home Carers Direct. This significantly reduces your administration time - just look at some of our testimonials!

· If you are using self-directed ISP funding through a Financial Intermediary, you can hire the carers on the Home Carers Direct platform directly and seek reimbursement from your Financial Intermediary. It is best to check with your Financial Intermediary first before you book your first engagement.

· If you are using a NDIS Plan Management Provider, you can hire the support workers on the Home Carers Direct platform directly and seek reimbursement from your Plan Management Provider by forwarding the paid invoices that are automatically generated by our platform. You will need to ensure that the services you are paying for are under the NDIS maximum prices. Your plan manager can help you establish this before you book for care. We have done some research for you and in our experience found Integra to be one of the NDIS Plan Management Providers to have one of the easiest reimbursement processes for NDIS Participants. You can contact the Integra Plan Management team on 1800 696 347, visit myintegra.com.au, or email choiceandcontrol@myintegra.com.au

· If your NDIS funding is administered by the NDIA you will need to select to self-manage the relevant category of your funding related to individual supports. Your Planner or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) can help you do this once they have assessed that you have the capacity to self-manage a portion of your funding.
