Do you want your Current Approved Provider to keep 20% pa or 63% pa of the Government Funding & Consumer Contributions before they buy or provide your care?

The Government never had financial transparency in home aged care prior to 1/7/2015 unlike private paying clients who have always had transparency. So clients have never known how much the Government funding was, and how much the Approved Provider kept in fees before providing Elder care. The Government has forced transparency via:

1. Approved Providers having their fees online from 30 November 2018. Daughterly Care Community Services had our costs online for 18 months prior to the requirement.

2. Proposed budget

3. Monthly Home Care Statements

Daughterly Care’s CEO, Kate Lambert has audited thousands of Home Care Packages Statements over the last 3 years. Kate has discovered that the charged fees are often a lot more than what Old-School Approved Providers actually disclosed. The worst she has seen is 63% pa fees. Learn from her blogs which publish the rorts she has found.
