Looking after the house and garden: What will the NDIS cover?
Here at Leap in! HQ, we often get asked questions about help and assistance with jobs around the house and garden.
The two questions we hear the most are:
- Does the NDIS cover home cleaning, maintenance and gardening?
- How do I find the right supports to help with home cleaning, maintenance and gardening?
Today we’ll look at both.
Does the NDIS cover home cleaning, maintenance and gardening?
The NDIA will consider many factors before deciding whether or not to include any funding in your plan. They must be satisfied that a support is reasonable and necessary and will assist you to pursue your goals, objectives and aspirations.
We’ve written an article if you need help to understand What is ‘reasonable and necessary’? .
However, if you receive funding for Assistance with Daily Living in your plan, and your disability stops you from doing a task where a person without a disability would be able to do it themselves, then you can use your funding to hire supports to help with gardening, cleaning and home maintenance.
How do I find the right supports to help me?
