The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is the federal organisation that offers support to Australians with a disability. It is the role of the NDIS to provide funding to all Australians who have a permanent and significant disability under the age of 65 years old.
As well as funding, the NDIS provides support by being a hub of information that helps connect people living with a disability to the services available within their communities.
Financial support is available through the NDIS. Read more at our NDIS section.

The icare lifetime care scheme pays for treatment, rehabilitation and community support services to people who have been severely injured in a motor accident in NSW, regardless of who was at fault in the accident. The NSW Government Scheme, which is funded by a levy on green slips (compulsory third party insurance) has been running since 1 October 2006 for children under 16 and 1 October 2007 for adults.
A participant is eligible for the scheme if they present with the following injuries: spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, amputations, severe burns or are permanently blind as a result of the accident.
Please contact us for further information.

Refers to any paid care and support services delivered to a client’s living in the community. Attendant care enables clients to remain living at home, and live independently. People that may need attendant care include people with a disability, recovering from injury, and frail elderly folks. Attendant care may include, nursing care and assistance with all the activities of daily living including personal care, domestic services, community access, vocational support, educational support, child care services, gardening/home maintenance, respite care, palliative care, social support and therapy program support.
Yes, Care1 provides comprehensive checks including Criminal Record and Working with Children Checks on all care workers prior to delivering services to our clients.
The difference is that home health is skilled clinical care directed by a doctor or other health care provider. Personal home care on the other hand is assistance involving non-clinical services, like home help, transportation, and other personal assistance.

The key word here is ‘Acquired’. Meaning a brain injury that has occurred as a result of an accident, illness or traumatic event. This injury then has an impact on the function of that area of the cerebrum, such as motor function, memory or speech.
No it is not. While there are cases of children born with brain damage, those incidents are more commonly known as prenatal, perinatal or congenital injuries. The acquired injury here happens after birth.
Acquired Brain Injuries can occur following a variety of traumatic accidents and incidents where the brain is damaged. This can happen through physical impact or a loss of oxygen. Injuries can come from assault, falls, sporting accidents and traffic collisions. In fact, over 70% of these injuries are the result of road accidents. Other causes include strokes, asphyxiation and tumours.
