Blue Care helps to foster independence under the NDIS
FOR Graeme Nairn, Blue Care is more than just a service provider – it’s a partner.
Mr Nairn was diagnosed with a form of cerebral palsy that affects limb mobility at a young age.
Now in his 50s, Mr Nairn was nervous about the transition to the NDIS, which meant, for the first time, managing his own support.
After speaking to Blue Care, Mr Nairn was supported to not only smoothly transition to the NDIS, he was able to secure a funding package that will enable him to realise his dream to live independently.
Mr Nairn said with Blue Care’s support, he’s optimistic about the future.
“You can’t do things alone, you’re better off with a partner,” he said.
“Blue Care has opened up possibilities I didn’t even think about.
“With the NDIS I feel I’m the one in control and my quality of life is going to improve.”
Blue Care is available to support Queenslanders with a disability through every aspect of the transition to the NDIS, including identifying goals and support needs, planning for their NDIA meeting and engaging support services.
