Client Feedback...

SAM BOLTON

CLIENT

I have been working with Adam for approximately two years and have noticed a significant improvement in my functionality and strength. Adam's positive attitude and enthusiasm towards developing a bi-weekly gym routine makes going to the gym enjoyable and rewarding. Adam's willingness to adapt exercises and routines to cater for my limitations, whilst maintaining a high intensity session, is outstanding and is reflective of his exceptional knowledge of exercise physiology and working with a large range of client abilities. I would highly recommend Adam to anybody seeking a mobile exercise physiologist on the Sunshine Coast, you won't regret it!

Do You Have NDIS Funding for Exercise Physiology?

NDIS personal exercise training sunshine coast

NDIS Participants can choose which providers they wish to work with, and their NDIS plan identifies what outcomes they wish to achieve, and the supports they will use.

Allied health providers such as exercise physiologists play an important role within the NDIS by providing quality services and support to participants.

Age Well For Life EP can be arranged through two NDIS Capacity Building funding categories. 

  1. Improved Health and Well-being
  2. Improved daily living

Depending on the structure of your package you may also have the potential to consult with an exercise physiologist via other avenues such as core funding.


In-Home Exercise Physiology For Plan Or Self Managed NDIS Participants

Age Well For Life EP is practicing as a non-registered provider with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) on the Sunshine Coast region and provides in home physical health and well-being services to people with a permanent disability.

Age Well For Life EP is a registered provider with governing bodies such as Medicare, Department Of Veteran Affairs and Exercise and Sport Science Australia.

Age Well For Life EP was previously a registered NDIS allied health provider. However, the recent changes to the NDIA provider registration process are very costly and designed for large companies, meaning that remaining as a registered provider was not a viable option for a small business such as Age Well For Life EP.

By choosing Age Well For Life EP you will work with an allied health professional who is:

Experienced

Qualified

Trusted

Parent/Carer Of Client Cindy 

Cindy had a delayed subarachnoid hemorrhage,  left inter-cerebral haematoma and aneurysm Sept, 2016 with significant loss of left hemisphere tissue in her brain. She needed to get movement back, if possible, as a priority. Adam's exercise physiology services have been extremely helpful as Cindy's first movements came from his treatments. Her arm movements & balance have improved significantly. I can't thank Adam enough for what he is doing with Cindy. 

The decision to become an un-registered provider is by no means an indication of the quality of the services Age Well For Life EP provides.  Age Well For Life EP continues to provide convenient and professional in-home physical therapy to residents of the Sunshine Coast. The only difference is, as a non-registered provider, Age Well For Life EP can now only provide assistance to self and plan managed NDIS participants.

So just like any registered provider, Age Well For Life EP can continue to provide services which are fully funded by the NDIS. The main difference between unregistered and registered providers is that only registered providers can claim their invoices with the NDIS directly.

Unregistered providers such as us will send our invoices to you to pay. You or you plan manger will then have to manually claim the funds back from the NDIS, using the NDIS portal or plan management software.

Best yet, as an unregistered provider Age Well For Life EP has less overhead costs. These savings are passed onto you. Meaning you get a lot more value out your NDIS funding for the same high quality allied health services.
