Nextt supports Scott to get more out of life

Nextt supports Scott to get more out of life

Scott transitioned to Nextt from Sorento Care in January 2017, where he was supported in one of our disability accommodation units.

Due to his disability, he was not able to able to navigate the NDIS and had minimal funding.  As a result, he was not receiving the allied health and medical support he needed.

Nextt supported Scott to apply for initial NDIA funding in June 2019. Unfortunately, the initial support budget he received did not include funding for Support Coordination – which Scott desperately needed to connect him with much needed services and ensure he had choice and control in his life.  A review was completed, and Scott received additional funds for Support Coordination in his new NDIS plan as well as funding for in-home supports. 

With the assistance of Lucia Imbrogno from Nextt Service Delivery and Eddy Roger, Nextt Support Coordinator, Scott was put in contact with an Allied Health team.  Eddy introduced Scott to both a Psychologist and Occupational Therapist.  Eddy also assisted him to get a state tribunal order through SACAT so he would have a Guardianship order in place to be supported in all his life decisions.

 In October 2020, Eddy worked with Scott to find a suitable home with daily supports.

 Scott has made his home a home with his toys and much-loved Power Ranger Morphers.

 His next step is to transition into Supported Independent Living, to make sure all his needs are being met, and that he gets more out of life.
