Don’t Let Fear Stop You From Self-Managing Your Disability Care Plan

Are you searching for tips and advice on self-managing your disability care? Have you been searching for online chat groups? These groups can be a great way to hear from people with similar experiences.


But while there are plenty of helpful people online, what’s right for them may not always be right for you. 


Don't let fear get in the way of self managing your disability care plan.


Sometimes, the information you come across can cause you more confusion and anxiety. There can be a lot of mixed messages online about how difficult it is to self-manage, including:


  • what you need to do to get started

  • how to meet your NDIS requirements

  • what you can spend your funding on

  • what happens if you're audited

  • and much more.

Ability8 is a family-run business. We developed our app to help people like you (and us) manage disability care plans. After the launch of the NDIS, we knew there had to be a better way. We wanted one place to store everything and simplify self-management.


Before we launched, we spent a lot of time talking with people in the disability community. So we could build an application that would help make self-management simpler. We love getting feedback from customers to help us improve. So we can update and enhance the tools and functionality of our app.


Our goal is to give you more control so that you can maximise the value of your plan. And get what you need for you or your loved one. We want to help give you more flexibility to choose and arrange the right support. So you can try new things and even change supports to find what’s best for you. 


Not sure if self-management is right for you? We recommend visiting the NDIS website. It has lots of helpful information to help you determine if it's the right step for you.


It boils down to this set of criteria.


If you can:


  • Find your own supports and services 

  • Look after your money and funding 

  • Keep proof of what you pay 

  • Use the NDIS portal or app on your computer or phone. 


Then you can self-manage.


How you self-manage is up to you.


There are plenty of people who have their own unique approach. But the benefit of an app like ours is that you can store everything in one central location. 


Ability8 helps you prove to the NDIA that you are capable of managing your own funding. And it has your back if you're ever audited - all of your information is right there at your fingertips when you need it.


To see if our app is right for you, we encourage you to sign up for a free 30-day trial.


The app contains plenty of helpful videos to guide and support you. And will take you through all the various tools available to you. We also offer extra training if you need it.


Get in touch with us if you're keen to find out more. We’d love to help you on your self-management journey.
