Building Independence with the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is transforming the lives of people with disabilities across Australia. At Alaska Care, we believe in the power of the NDIS to provide individuals with the support they need to build independence and take control of their lives. In this blog post, we will explore how the NDIS empowers participants to achieve their goals, develop new skills, and enhance their overall well-being.

Person-Centred Approach

One of the key principles of the NDIS is its person-centred approach. This means that the participant is at the heart of decision-making and is actively involved in designing their NDIS plan. Alaska Care works closely with participants to identify their goals, aspirations, and support needs. By understanding the unique circumstances of each individual, we can tailor our services and supports to help them build independence in areas such as daily living, social participation, education, and employment.

Capacity Building Supports

The NDIS provides a range of capacity building supports aimed at developing the skills and abilities of participants. Alaska Care is committed to providing these supports to enable individuals to achieve greater independence. Through therapeutic interventions, skill development programs, and specialized training, we help participants build their capacity in areas such as communication, self-care, decision-making, problem-solving, and community engagement. Our dedicated team of professionals works collaboratively with participants to create personalized strategies and interventions that promote their growth and well-being.

Assistive Technology

Assistive technology plays a vital role in promoting independence for individuals with disabilities. The NDIS recognizes the importance of assistive technology in enhancing daily living, communication, mobility, and participation in various activities. At Alaska Care, we assist participants in accessing and utilizing appropriate assistive technology devices and equipment. Our team works closely with participants to assess their needs, recommend suitable assistive technology solutions, and provide training and ongoing support to ensure successful implementation and utilization of these tools.

Support Coordination

Navigating the NDIS can sometimes be overwhelming, especially for those who are new to the scheme. That’s where support coordination comes in. Alaska Care offers support coordination services to help participants navigate the NDIS, connect with relevant supports and services, and make informed decisions about their goals and plans. Our support coordinators act as advocates, providing guidance, information, and assistance in coordinating supports from various service providers. We aim to empower participants to take control of their NDIS journey and make choices that align with their aspirations and needs.


The NDIS presents a unique opportunity for individuals with disabilities to gain greater independence and control over their lives. Alaska Care is dedicated to supporting participants in realizing their goals and aspirations through person-centred approaches, capacity building supports, assistive technology, and support coordination services. We believe that with the right support and guidance, participants can unlock their full potential and lead fulfilling lives.
