The Summer Foundation has developed sample NDIS plans to share with people aged under 65 years living in, or at risk of entering, residential aged care (RAC) and their families, supporters, guardians or nominees.
This guide includes five sample plans for people in differing circumstances with examples of how the NDIS can support participants to exercise choice and control to lead an ordinary life:
Sample NDIS Plan A: Working towards leaving RAC to live in the community with appropriate supports from the NDIS
Sample NDIS Plan B: Supporting a younger person to move out of RAC into specialist disability accommodation (SDA)
Sample NDIS Plan Plan C (Year 1): Supporting a younger person with disability and complex support needs to live in SDA in the community
Sample NDIS Plan D (Year 2): This plan shows the following year of supports for a younger person with disability and complex support needs to get an idea of what supports and funding a person might need living in SDA in the community
Sample NDIS Plan E: Living a more fulfilled life in RAC
It can be overwhelming to think about all the services and supports someone may need in a day, week, month or in 12 month’s time. It can also be difficult to understand how much NDIS funding you need to achieve your goals.
These sample plans are to give you a place to start. We have also included a pre-planning tool to help you to develop your own plan and a planning template so you can keep a record of your planning meeting.
A Word document of the Sample NDIS Plans is also available here.
