NDIS – The National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing individualised support for people with disability, their families and carers. The NDIS is insurance, which gives peace of mind. Disability can affect anyone, and having the right support makes a big difference.
The NDIS provides eligible people a flexible, whole-way-of-life approach to the support they need to pursue their goals. It also fosters social inclusion and economic participation.
We are pleased to advise that Active Physio Health is a NDIS Registered Provider in Gladstone, Biloela and Agnes Water.
Physiotherapists at Active Physio Health can help with NDIS
Our physiotherapists help people of all age groups and with different conditions. We help people take part in the community and to become more independent.
Our physiotherapists are experts in treating children, young adults and the ageing population with a disability, whether it involves heart and lung conditions, neurological and musculoskeletal conditions.
We can help you, or the person you care for:
- get out of bed
- take a bath or shower, dress and eat
- move around the home and outside the home
- do daily jobs, or sports and hobbies
- manage pain and chronic conditions
- lose weight
- choose and learn to use new equipment, like wheelchairs, walking frames and orthotics.
- increase strength and flexibility
- become more independent
You may need a short burst of care from our physiotherapists, or care for a longer time to achieve your goals. We can put a plan together to help you now, and into the future.
Some health conditions need a number of health experts to work together. Our physiotherapists also work closely with other health workers. Together we can help you manage more complex needs.
In case you have not experienced physiotherapy in the past, rest assured that it is safe, and effective in getting you closer to your goals. We use evidence and research to guide us in working out the most effective treatment for you. We must also meet the same strict legal requirements to work, like your GP and nurses.
