The lucky stroke crippled me and gave me a new life. Now I'm just unbelievably good looking and modest. Always turn a little to the left.

OVER 65, YOU CAN GO SUCK EGGS! National Disability Insurance Scheme SAYS NO! NOT FOR PEOPLE OVER 65
OVER 65' AND DISABLED. YOUR JUST A LEFT OVER. LIKE SCRAP (To old to be useful)
WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM, NO ONE KNOWS!
Who is covered?
To qualify for care and support under the NDIS, a person must:
Be aged under 65.
Be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent visa.
Meet either the disability or early intervention requirements.
Has a disability that is attributable to one or more intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory or physical impairments or to a psychiatric condition AND the impairment or impairments are, or are likely to be, permanent.
The impairment results in substantially reduced capacity to undertake communication, social interaction, learning, mobility, self-care or self-management.
The impairment or impairments affect the person’s capacity for social and economic participation.
The person is likely to require support under the National Disability Insurance Scheme for the person’s lifetime.
Early intervention requirements:
Has one or more intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory or physical impairments that are, or are likely to be, permanent OR has one or more impairments that are attributable to a psychiatric condition that is, or is likely to be, permanent.
Is a child who has developmental delay AND providing early intervention supports for the person is likely to reduce the person’s future needs for supports for their disability.
Providing early intervention supports is likely to mitigate or alleviate the impact of the person’s impairment on their capacity to undertake communication, social interaction, learning, mobility, self-care or self-management, or improve or prevent the deterioration of such capacity OR providing early intervention supports is likely to strengthen the sustainability of the person’s informal supports, for example by building the capacity of the person’s carer.
