Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and the NDIS
The NDIS provides funding for the supports and services you might need because of your brain injury. Your medical practitioner can help you apply for access, and your home care package may also include a range of options for added assistance. ABI is often an adjustment for family, carers, friends, and workplaces too.
