Living Life to the Full with the NDIS

Dick Duong shared his NDIS experiences of living his life and following his passions for travel.

Living Life to the Full on the NDIS with Home Care Experts by Calvary client Dick Duong

I love travel, international architecture, museums and food. I don’t let my disease stop me from doing what I want to do. Alaska, Canada, Malaysia, Japan and New Zealand are just some of the places I have visited with my Support Worker.

Together with my friend, I design and build gadgets for my wheelchair. I also enjoy building computers.

With four shifts a day, great conversation and a good laugh are important to me so I look for experienced Support Workers with a good sense of humour.

As far as the NDIS is concerned, I’m quite happy with the services that Home Care Experts by Calvary is providing me and I intend to continue letting them manage that for me. I’m a firm believer of the saying 'if it’s not broken, don’t fix it'.

When selecting an NDIS provider I would suggest thinking about:

• How quick and flexible can they respond to the changing needs of the client?

• Can the provider provide a support service for clients wishing to travel?

• What rostering system do they use?
