Starting your NDIS personal care journey with Regal

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

Once we have received your enquiry, you will be sent a form to complete detailing your NDIS personal 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 personal care budget.

From here, your Disability Coordinator will work with you to co-design a bespoke 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 personal care preferences including staffing, preferred 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 funded personal care roster.

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

Regal has been a leading and trusted home care provider in Sydney since 1966, providing clinical, personal care and domestic support to Greater Metropolitan Sydney for over 56 years. Regal believes high quality NDIS personal 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 personal 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 personal 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 personal care to provide support if there are any clinical concerns or they require clinical services. Having Regal Nurses involved in care makes Regal confident in providing services to participants with complex support requirements.

Having an assigned Disability Coordinator also separates Regal from other NDIS personal care providers as NDIS participants receive a direct point of contact for their services.
