It is mothers day this weekend! We know that mothers day stalls and school crafted gifts have been cancelled for this year.
So and kids why not give mum a special treat and cook her a yummy meal this Sunday. We thought you probably already have a handle on breakfast, Jenni has fond memories of cold Vegemite toast and lukewarm tea.
We thought we would share a really easy recipe for Chicken and Leek Baked Risotto. No need to stand and stir this risotto for AGES, the oven does all the hard work for you. That way you can enjoy more special time with Mum. Enjoy.
The webpage explains how people with disability can protect themselves from COVID-19, including through good hygiene, physical distancing, avoiding public gatherings, isolating if they are sick, and finding safe and alternative ways to get the services they need.
This advice supports and promotes the NDIS principles of empowering people with disability to exercise choice and control.
NDIS Commission resources for NDIS participants about COVID-19
The NDIS Commission has a COVID-19 webpage containing information for people with disability, and we have issued two fact sheets for NDIS participants about COVID-19.
their rights and how to make a complaint about a provider
what resources are available from the NDIA
where to find more information and resources about COVID-19.
2. The second NDIS participant fact sheet explains what to expect from providers and workers during COVID-19, including some possible changes to the way supports and services are delivered during this time.
Disability Information Helpline
The Disability Information Helpline provides information and referrals for people with disability who need help because of COVID-19. It can also assist families, carers, and support workers. The helpline is available by calling 1800 643 787. If you are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech impairment, you can also call the National Relay Service on 133 677. It is available Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm (AEST) and Saturday and Sunday 9am to 7pm (AEST). It is not available on national public holidays.
We know know that some people are struggling with not seeing their friends and family.
We also know that it is easier to connect online than many people think. So we have put together a basic video on how you can use Zoom (which is free) to connect with the people important to you. While it’s not quite the same as in person, it is a wonderful substitute in these strange times.
If you have any hassles or need someone to answer any questions, please give us a call 5655 2524. Or you can comment on the post via Facebook.
