Disability care solutions









I’ve lived with a physical disability my whole life. I won’t say it’s easy, because it definitely is not. What I will say though is that I’ve found ways to manage living with my disability. This has come through many years of trials and tribulations. Things have definitely been a struggle at times. I’ve had to miss out on a lot of things other people without disabilities have been able to enjoy. I’d be lying if I said that I haven’t felt restricted in life. Basic day to day self-care tasks and errands take me three times as long to complete than a person without disability. Thankfully, I’ve found a helpful NDIS provider near me who has been able to give me the care I need so my daily life can become more simple.

I was living with my family for many years, but sadly two years ago this was no longer an option. Most people have babies and then their baby reaches a certain age and is able to fend for themselves. That’s not always the case when you have a child with a disability. My care needs didn’t reduce as I got older. In fact, I think it’s safe to say that I actually needed more support with age. I was very reliant on my family for so long, but sadly once my mum got sick she was no longer able to care for me. My mum developed her own myriad of health issues that made it impossible for her to give me the support and care I needed. 

As my mum’s health continued to dwindle, there was no other option but to put her in a home. This meant I had to start looking at other care options. There are many community nursing options in Adelaide for disability, and I’m pleased to say I found a facility that can care for me in ways I need. I now have the support to complete basic self-care tasks in my life. I feel able. I feel free. I feel I can finally make the most out of life.
