FOR Graeme Nairn, Blue Care is more than just a service provider - it's a partner.  

Graeme was diagnosed with a form of cerebral palsy that affects limb mobility at a young age.

in his 50s, Graeme was nervous about the transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme, which meant, for the first time, managing his own support.   

After speaking to Blue Care, Graeme was supported to not only smoothly transition to the NDIS.

But he was able to secure a funding package that will enable him to realise his dream to live independently.   

Graeme said with Blue Care's continued support, he was optimistic about the future.  

"You can't do things alone, you're better off with a partner. Blue Care has opened up possibilities I didn't even think about.  

"With the NDIS I feel I'm the one in control and my quality of life is going to improve."  

Blue Care is available to support Queenslanders with a disability through every aspect of the transition to the NDIS, including identifying goals and support needs, planning for their National Disability Insurance Agency meeting and engaging support services.
