In light of a constant sense of fear and uncertainty that we are all facing with COVID-19, many of our members have reported additional stress and concern in their daily lives. Developing your own COVID-safe plan for you and your family can help to manage stress.
Where possible, have supports that are needed take place through telehealth/virtual means. Other supports like gardening etc can be conducted in a contactless manner.
Top Tips for developing a COVID-safe plan.
- NDIS core support funding can be now used to purchase PPE (personal protective equipment) including face masks
- Limit exposure points; as humans we are social animals, can you incorporate virtual catch ups into your weekly supports
- Open and transparent communication with your support and healthcare team
- Keep up to date with your local health authority for updates
