I received my NDIS plan confirmation back in March. It's great - well nearly great...
I had asked to be completely self-managed, except adaptive tech, of course, because that will always require an assessment.
Anyway, for some reason I didn't get my core supports granted as self-managed, except for consumables.
That basically means that gardening, house cleaning, and person training all need to go through a NDIS registered service. I don't want to give up my gardener. Not only does he know exactly what we need, but he charges a very reasonable price.
As far as cleaners go, we have a great one at the moment, but he isn't NDIS registered. I'm claiming him under consumables and hoping my application for administrative review happens soon. I have to call them again today.
I think I've been able to find an NDIS registered personal trainer though, I'm going to have a chat with her later this week and see if we can work something out. I'd like to start with three 45 minute sessions a week to build my stamina. I am thinking that maybe the NDIS will only cover an hour a week, so I might have to pick up the slack there, but we'll see.
My main goals are to correct my posture and relieve pain that stems from sitting at a computer and leaning into the screen all day, as well as building stamina. I think weight loss is inevitable, which will be a bonus. I'm hoping to do weights to build some muscle (I'm pretty sure I don't have much, hahaha).
I'm also hoping this will help me sleep better and have more energy during the day. I'll keep y'all updated.
