NDIS is funded and governed by the Australian people and other state governments and is an Australian Organization especially established to provide provision to the people who are unable to fit in the social environment and move on with their life. NDIS is not a charitable and welfare scheme, rather it provides a way to generate funds from various sources and provide directly to disabled people and to their families.

NDIS is all about providing support that people with disability who needs, to achieve their goal and participate in the community and workplace to live an ordinary life. The National Disability Insurance Scheme help families who are suffering from various disabilities, which can be of physical or cognitive.

There comes a time in life when someone realizes that they need to assist and help someone who is in need and wants their continuous support in day-to-day life. At this point he/she becomes a standard operator or in a simple word, a caregiver. When elderly parents cannot take care of themselves and wants someone support to and encourage them physically and emotionally, that’s when the importance of caregivers reflects.

Many people aged above 65 do suffer from various kinds of mental health problems, in this case, there must be one person whom they can trust with their whole heart and follow their guides to cope with every situation. Mental health issues are often seen in elderly people, which creates an emotional and tragic situation in a family. At some point, the family even cannot find out what they need to do in such type of situation, they either panic and could not handle it properly or they left their parents in mental health center to improve their elder parent’s health.

A caregiver, are now taking a major role economically and functionally. Economically, in the sense that caregivers do receive funds from their regular assistance to elders and functionally because they must take care of the elders who are physically and mentally disabled, in a way that the people who are suffering could fit in the social environment and realize their importance in the family. Generally, the elders mostly suffer from dementia, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, these serious mental health problems must be handled in a careful way so that it does not affect the family members and the patient.

NDIS is also one of the Australian organizations that provide essential care for the family who is deprived of helping their disabled parents or children. The one who wants to work either voluntarily or as a job needs to contact

NDIS and confirm their participation in helping the disabled ones. The things that the standard operator can do as part of NDIS continuously help them to adjust to their situations.

In case of emergency, the standard operators can be with the aging elders the whole time and can avoid critical situations.  The compassion and concern of the caregivers can make the elders feel that they are also important, and their presence does play a vital role in the family. Making the elders want who are suffering from mental health problems is so much needed because they are at the stage of their life where a little bit of harsh words or discourtesy makes them feel sad and gloomy.

The trained standard operators for NDIS and various organizations can handle every situation of the elders suffering from mental health problems with very carefulness and consider the ill elders as their own parents. This brings a feeling of empathy and gives a way to have a closer bond with each other. Having patience while working as a caregiver is the most required thing, the more they can handle themselves in every difficult situation of the patients, the more they are eligible as a caregiver. Being mentally ill in an aging day really is a challenging and vulnerable situation for the elders and even for their families.

Here, they need someone who can guide them and help them in this difficult situation, they need someone whom they can trust with all their heart and share their problems with. Best standard operators make themselves flexible so that their patients can get the supports they are longing for, can become reliable so that the patient can trust them, always have the urge to help the one in need and, more specifically, is a generous people who shows kind and empathetic nature.
