Bendigo SCI Regional Network Meeting - August 2018
The August meeting started with the group discussing future meeting topics. The group agreed that they would like to learn more about superannuation and Total Permanent Disability, in addition to different ways of managing pain, and the importance of sleep and managing sleep apnoea.
The discussion then turned to the group’s experiences of navigating the NDIS system. They agreed there were difficulties in getting what you want, and finding staff willing to travel to you. Jenny, Bendigo Health’s NDIS Support Coordinator, stressed the need for individuals to give feedback and complaints on their NDIS experiences. This will help improve the NDIS, especially for people living with a spinal cord injury. Everyone also learned the importance of wording their plan in a clear and simple manner to ensure they receive the services they need.
