In this difficult time, most of us are pleased to be home, our safe place, and wait until Covid-19 passes. With the government restricting people going out it can be difficult to get the essentials you need to stay mobile. Active Mobility Systems can help provide these essential services to people living with disabilities, elderly, aged care homes, nursing homes, group homes and much more.
International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is held on December 3rd each year. Today, we would like to celebrate the 4.3 million Australians living with disability and many more all around the world.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme provides all Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy an ordinary life. The NDIS helps people with disability achieve their goals. Learning the “NDIS language” will help participants understand the NDIS Scheme and how it can help and benefit the participant.
Throughout history, society has often looked unkindly towards people with disabilities. These people, along with the aged community, are seen as burdens as they have been underestimated in their capabilities time and again. However, as advocates of Independent Living will tell you, they are more than capable of acting for themselves provided they are given the opportunity and tools to do so. Now, more than ever, there are multiple organisations that equip people with disabilities and the members of the aged community with the necessary services and independent living equipment to live on their own with little help from others.
Disability awareness is about challenging notions and stereotypes about persons with disabilities and replacing these harmful assumptions with knowledge and understanding.
Persons with disability become comfortable when their environment allows them to move freely and safely, especially at home. A conducive space makes these persons feel not only welcome but also empowered, helping them feel that they are included and can once again participate in society.
Caring for your loved one at home may require some home and routine modifications. As the carer, you will also need to learn a few things to take care of yourself and your patient.
Disability advocates are an important part of the disability world. These are the people that push for changes in the government to better help those living with disability so that they may live a fulfilling life that is full of dignity and respect.
The greatest of these advocates was Jan Daisley, a founding member of People With Disability Australia (PWDA) who passed away last year.
Occupational therapists helps a lot of people by teaching them how to adapt to everyday life despite the conditions that their clients have undergone. However there are still some misconceptions about them that we will address in this article.
