ONLINE – Person Centred Lifestyle Planning
Are you planning for a Good Life not just a good NDIS plan?
Why is planning important?
We have learned from working within the NDIS planning and implementation that only planning with the NDIS is not enough to create a good life. We need to focus on visioning a good life and implementing good supports.
Developing a Person Centred Lifestyle plan will:
- Support the NDIS planning
- Ensure people supporting the person has the information they need to do their job and achieve positive outcomes
- Help you get the support you want / need
- Change the mindsets of supporters to a strengths-based practice
- Enhance the good work of supporting people in a person centred way
We are inviting individuals with disability / mental health, their family members and their supporters to participate in this course. NDIS funding can be used to participate in the workshops.
This Person Centred Lifestyle Planning course is an interactive program that brings people together regularly to experience a hands-on approach to developing a Person Centred Lifestyle Plan for themselves, their family member experiencing disability or mental health or someone they are supporting. In between sessions participants will be able to complete actions to implement the plan, share what they have learned with others that know and care about the person and gather further learning.
Workshops are facilitated by family members with experience in Person Centred Planning and Self-Directing supports as well as experienced disability/mental health professionals.
