How tech can help you to achieve your goals as an NDIS participant
Discover how tech and digital care programs can help you to simplify your daily routine, achieve greater independence and earn real rewards to keep you motivated every step of the way as an NDIS participant.
As an NDIS participant, you know that goals are an important part of the program. In fact, setting goals can help you unlock the lifestyle you want. From using public transport by yourself to moving out of home, goal setting is about clarifying what you want to do and mapping out the steps you’ll need to take to get you there.
Whether you’re self-managed, plan-managed, or NDIA-managed, assistive technology can help you to achieve your goals sooner than you might think. By finding apps and digital programs that can motivate you to complete your daily health tasks, you’ll take the hassle out of your health routine and create more time to focus on your goals.
Plus, low-cost assistive technology can be fully reimbursed through your NDIS funding, too. Keep reading to discover four key benefits of using tech to achieve your goals as an NDIS participant.
Benefit 1: Taking the decision-making out of managing your health routine
Whether you’re living with a permanent or significant disability, you’ll have regular tasks you need to complete on a daily basis to manage your health. That might mean attending physio appointments, taking medications at specific times, or completing a number of daily exercises.
No matter what condition you’re managing, there are a lot of daily health tasks to keep on top of. That’s where technology can help. A digital care program can help you keep track of all your treatment tasks (such as medications, appointments, and exercises) all in one place.
When you need to complete a task, you’ll receive a notification straight to your phone to ensure you never miss a step. Plus, once you’ve completed each task, you can cross it off your virtual to-do list to keep a clear record of what tasks you’ve completed each day. With tech by your side, you can rest assured you’ll never forget a step in your routine again.
Benefit 2: Unlocking more time to focus on your goals
Living with a disability or chronic condition as an NDIS participant can mean managing an intensive health routine. With so many tasks on your to-do list, it can be difficult to find time to work towards your long-term goals of moving out, studying, or finding a job you love.
With a digital care program, you can streamline your health routine to create more time to work towards hitting your goals. Using tech, you’ll have a virtual health sidekick motivating you to complete your daily health tasks on-time.
With regular reminders, weekly challenges, and a community of other NDIS participants at your fingertips, you’ll be motivated to build healthy habits that stick. For you, that means more time to work towards your goals (and less time spent on remembering to take medications and rushing to appointments).
Benefit 3: Rewarding you for sticking to your NDIS plan
Speaking of motivation, that’s exactly what you’ll get with a digital care program as an NDIS participant. Sometimes it can be hard to feel motivated to complete the same health tasks each and every day. But with tech by your side, you’ll be able to stay motivated, see results, and even earn real rewards for sticking to your health routine.
At Perx, our motivational programs help our members stay engaged with their routine by offering real rewards every step of the way. Simply by completing your daily health tasks at the right time each day, you’ll earn points and score real gift cards to use at some of Australia’s top retailers.
