Host Provider Model

As a Your Life Your Choice (YLYC) Host Provider, Muscular Dystrophy Queensland offers flexible host services with a tiered structure tailored to meet the individual needs of people living with the broad range of Muscular Dystrophy and neuromuscular conditions, both diagnosed and undiagnosed, across the state of Queensland.

Muscular Dystrophy Queensland, will apply its person-centred strengths-based approach with each client to ensure the best possible outcome for their quality of life. We are committed to work alongside each client accessing the YLYC service to assist them to ‘unpack’ their day-to-day needs to determine how their funding can be optimised, taking into account their goals, priorities and aspirations.

Muscular Dystrophy Queensland provides families with both choice and flexibility. We realize that there are a wide range of options for services and resources, and we work alongside our clients to ensure that their needs are met in the way they request and according to their priority of need. In addition, consideration is given to offering our clients options so that they can choose the best model of service for themselves, taking into account their individual circumstances and what is important to them.

Muscular Dystrophy Queensland’s YLYC Host Service ensures continuing flexibility by providing ongoing options for clients to move between our service models at regular quarterly intervals (or more frequently in exceptional circumstances).

Whether you choose to fully self-direct your funding, or to self direct with either limited or some assistance, Muscular Dystrophy Queensland has a host model to suit your individual needs.

If you are interested in knowing more about YLYC, you are very welcome to attend a FREE information session (organised by Muscular Dystrophy Queensland).
