Our home and community support services encompass treatment of the mind as well as the body. Intellectual, spiritual, occupational, social, environmental, emotional, and physical aspects are all important for the wellness of an individual.

Support Coordination

Simba Support Services is registered under the NDIS to deliver Support Coordination. We are here to take the pressure off you and ensure that all your NDIS Plan goals are being implemented for you with ease.

How can we help you?

  • Set up your NDIS Participant portal (proda).

  • Find and connect you with services who are able to meet and achieve your goals.
  • Support you in getting the most out of your budget
  • Link you with other mainstream services; employment, public health, housing and education.

Plan Management

Let us take the stress away from you when managing your NDIS Plan finances.

We do this by processing your invoices and paying service providers, organise paperwork, provide you with expenditure reports, and send you monthly statements. You can also request some plan management activities to help you build your ability to self-manage.

Community support

Accessing community-based support services can be a huge relief at a stressful time. It means you can remain among your family, friends and support networks, and still work if you can, while receiving treatment. Your rehabilitation time can be reduced as a result of less disruption, continuity of care and support, and elimination of stigma of being singled out.

Respite

Respite, also known as Short-term care, is available for you within your own home. We understand that families and carers need time off while providing care for their loved one. We can tailor support around your loved one, while you need time off and we ensure that while doing it, you will be relaxed and at ease.

We provide in-home respite, to give you a short break from your daily routine.

You may require a respite service if:

  • You have recently fallen ill and temporarily need support within your home
  • Your carer has become ill or requires medical treatment and unable to care for you

We can provide respite within the comfort of your own home through:

  • Overnight carer stays
  • Weekday and weekend visits
  • Short day or full day support

In accordance with your needs, we can tailor the support around you. We have a great team, who are experienced in supporting families and children.
