1. Get an NDIS plan or change your plan

An allied health worker (e.g. a social worker or OT) can help you get an NDIS plan. If you have an NDIS plan, it may need changes. Your support coordinator can help you. You can ask for a face-to-face meeting with an NDIA planner. They will write down your needs and your goals.

2. Work out your housing and support needs

What do you need to return home? Your support coordinator or an allied health worker (e.g. a social worker or OT) can help. For example, you might need support with daily activities like getting ready in the morning, making meals or shopping for food. Your support coordinator will ask the NDIS to pay for things like these. They will help you choose people to work with you on your goals.

3. Double-check everything is ready before you leave hospital

Your support coordinator will make sure equipment and changes to your home are ready before you leave hospital. They will tell your support people what you need. You should have a meeting with your support team about the right date to leave hospital.
