The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an initiative that aims to provide support and assistance to individuals with disabilities to help them lead a more independent life. One of the core elements of the NDIS is the Improved Daily Living category, which includes assistance with daily life NDIS activities and supported independent living. In this blog post, we’ll share four essential tips for getting the most out of your NDIS Improved Daily Living plan.
1. Understanding the NDIS Funding Categories
The NDIS provides funding across a range of categories, including core supports, capital supports, capacity building supports, and support coordination. Understanding these categories is crucial to helping you choose the most appropriate support for your needs. Take the time to research and learn about the different funding categories and what supports are available under each category.
2. Identify Your Goals and Needs
Identifying your goals and needs is an essential step in developing a plan that works for you. Consider the areas where you need support, such as personal care, household tasks, and community participation. Once you’ve identified your needs, work with your NDIS provider to develop goals that align with your aspirations and objectives.
3. Utilise NDIS Assist Personal Activities
NDIS Assist Personal Activities is a category under Improved Daily Living that provides support for personal care and daily living activities. These supports can include help with showering, dressing, meal preparation, and household tasks. Utilising NDIS Assist Personal Activities can help you live more independently and comfortably in your own home.
4. Explore Supported Independent Living Options

SIL supports can include assistance with daily tasks, social participation, and community access. If you’re considering SIL, it’s essential to understand the types of support available and the eligibility criteria.
