Some things to keep in mind when choosing a service provider:
Ask yourself “How would I like to be supported to reach my goals?”
Say things like “I will need help every morning with getting dressed and preparing my meals” or “I need someone to accompany me to shop for groceries each week.”
Ask things like “How can you help me create the kind of life I want?” or “How will you help me in ways other than just companionship”?
If you have online access you might like to look at:
Ask yourself “Do they really meet my needs?” NDIS participants that helped create this website have told us that how they felt about an organisation or worker was often a good guide. If they felt comfortable with a worker or organisation that was good, and if they felt unsure or uneasy that was not good.
Remember that you are buying their services with your NDIS funds and you can shop around to find a service that suits you.
