Starting your NDIS home care journey with Regal

If you have a current NDIS Plan, please contact Regal to make an enquiry to begin your NDIS home care journey.

Once we have received your enquiry, you will be sent a form to complete detailing your NDIS home care needs. Once Regal has received your form, you will be assigned a designated Disability Coordinator. Your Disability Coordinator will work with you, your family and/or your Support Coordinator to better understand your support needs and NDIS home care budget. From there, they will work with you to co-design a bespoke NDIS home care Support Plan tailored to you within your funding allocation. We start by discussing your goals and preferences and then structuring your week accordingly.

The Disability Coordinator will work with you to understand your home care preferences including staffing, service times, dietary preferences, weekly schedule and more. Once agreed upon, your Disability Coordinator will work with the Regal Scheduling Team to design your NDIS home care roster.

Regal will coordinate any specific training for our team of Support Workers and Nurses to promote the delivery of high-quality disability home care services tailored to you, including training on the Support Plan. The individual Support Plan is regularly reviewed to ensure that our NDIS home care services are aligned with your established goals.

If you do not currently have an NDIS Plan, please visit our Private Care page or read our FAQ’s.

Why choose Regal?

Regal has been a leading and trusted home care provider in Sydney since 1966, providing clinical, personal and domestic support to Greater Metropolitan Sydney for over 56 years. Regal believes high quality NDIS home care services need to be co-designed with the individual who will receive the support, and services delivered are tailored to the goals and lifestyles of people with disability.

At Regal, we believe in designing NDIS home care services specifically for the individual. We work with our Clinical Teams to promote people with disabilities receiving high quality care and keeping our community staying safe and supported living in their own homes.

What makes Regal different from other NDIS home care providers is that Regal can offer clinical oversight and/or involvement in your home care as well as standard Support Worker services because of our in home Nursing services. This enables Regal NDIS participants to feel comfort knowing there are Nurses involved in the development and oversight of their NDIS home care to provide support if there are any clinical concerns or they require clinical services.

Regal Nurses ensure we can also offer services to participants with complex support requirements. Having an assigned Disability Coordinator separates Regal from other NDIS home care providers as NDIS participants receive a direct point of contact for their services who takes the time to understand exactly what you’re looking for in an NDIS home care provider.

What is the NDIS in Australia?

The NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme. The NDIS is a scheme of the Australian Government that funds cost associated with disability. The NDIS provides funding to eligible people with disability to gain more time with family and friends, greater independence, access to new skills, jobs, or volunteering in their community, and an improved quality of life.

The NDIS also connects anyone with disability to services in their community such as NDIS home care providers. This includes connections to doctors, community groups, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as providing information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.

The NDIS now supports over 500,000 Australians with disability to access the services and supports they need. For more information visit the NDIS website.
