Carers SA hosted a regional forum at Mount Gambier City Hall on Tuesday 114 September 2017. A panel of speakers provided carers and service providers with practical information ahead of the National Disability Insurance Scheme ( NDIS) rollout due in the region in October.
Carers SA Chief Executive Officer, David Militz, acted as master of ceremonies on the day ensuring the program flowed smoothly. Carers SA NDIS project manager Lis Burtnik explained how to prepare a carer statement to inform each individual NDIS plan. Krys Howard, manager, Home Care Plus highlighted the importance of carers being prepared before their first NDIS meeting.
Attendees also heard from Peter Lucas, a local carer, who shared his journey through the NDIS process.
The day was rounded off with a carer advisory group discussion and question and answer panel. We appreciate everyone’s involvement in the day to make it a success.
