Icaria Health employs Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech Pathologists and Dietitians who specialise in delivering therapeutic supports through the NDIS. They are able to assist you in working towards the achievement of you NDIS plan goals.
Across Australia, The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support to individuals and families living with disability. The NDIS ensures individual has choice, control and flexibility around accessing supports, providing to individualised funding, through the development of an individualised plan. This plan is developed in consultation with an NDIS representative, and highlights what sorts of supports individuals can have funded as part of that plan.
Icaria Health is a nationally registered service provider under the NDIS. As such, we provide access to Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology and Dietetic services for therapy support. Families can also ask to have our therapists involved in the development of your Individual Plan to help ensure it captures all of the support being provided and that it reflects your goals and aspirations.
We are currently registered to provide the following NDIS Supports:
Therapeutic supports are provided to assist participants to apply their functional skills to improve participation and independence in daily activities in areas such as language and communication, personal care, mobility and movement, interpersonal interactions and community living. Icaria Health is a home visiting service meaning that our therapists see the participant in their environment which may include the home, workplace, school, day program, or other individually appropriate setting.
Home Modification Design and Construction
This registration group incorporates design and subsequent changes to the participant’s home. Home modification design and construction includes installation of equipment or changes to building structures, fixture or fittings to enable participants to live as independently as possible or to live safely at home. Icaria Health therapists have extensive experience in home modification assessment and design. We work in partnership with builders to ensure that any modifications reflect the functional needs of participants within the NDIS Reasonable and Necessary Guidelines (section 34) of the NDIS Act.
Assistive Technology and Equipment
In addition to enabling participants to be independent or participate more fully in daily activities, assistive technology may reduce the need for assistance, make assistance safe and sustainable, and prevent or slow the development of further impairment. Assistive technology ranges in complexity. Icaria Health therapists facilitate the application process for NDIS funding where appropriate. Our therapists have an excellent relationship with local suppliers who can readily trial and sell standard disability/medical supplies. This allows us to work with participants and the suppliers to seek the most appropriate equipment for each individual.
All NDIS services are charged at the rates outlined in the NDIS Price Guide. A Service Agreement will always be created with the Individual Participant, or their nominated representative, outlining the services to be provided. All supports that are being provided to/for the individual will be invoiced against their plan and can be reviewed at any time.
Icaria Health provides all our services in the home or community. Travel costs are also outlined within the NDIS Price Guide. We always endeavour to reduce travel costs to our clientele, as we would rather utilise allocated funds to provide therapeutic input.
