Government subsidised Consumer Directed Care (CDC) in Home Care Packages
From the 27th February 2017, the Government has turned the in home aged care industry upside down to give you more control over your life by giving you total control of your in home Government funded Home Care Package.
Daughterly Care’s CEO, Kate Lambert explains Consumer Directed Care (CDC) on Channel 9’s Morning Show.
Is your Government subsidised Consumer Directed Care Home Care Package giving you:
✓ appropriate care from quality Caregivers?
✓ good service?
✓ a fair number of hours of in-home support and care; and importantly;
✓ are you being charged a fair price by your Current Approved Provider?
Many Older Australians, (Seniors and Elders) are NOT feeling they are receiving quality in home care. So they will benefit from taking the time to read through the following pages that I wrote to educate and empower Daughterly Care clients. I have seen first hand and many times over that informed and empowered consumers negotiate better outcomes.
Imagine benefiting from up to
$56,856.05 per person,
per annum to help you stay at home.
Government subsidised Home Care Packages
provide valuable funds to help reduce
your in home care costs.
The history of why the inhome aged care reforms occured…
1. Older Australians (Seniors and Elders) are living longer (international trend);
2. a greater proportion of the Australian population are reaching an older age due to all those baby boomers born after World War II ended;
3. baby boomers are better educated, have higher expectations; negotiating better care for their elderly parents; and
4. The international & universal trend for seniors and elders preferring to remain in their own home (and indeed their preference to pass away at home) rather than move into a nursing home caused…
… The 2010 Federal Government to appoint The Australian Productivity Commission (APC) to review Australia’s Age Care Industry to identify how Australia could deliver the aged care we need, more efficiently than it had been to date, whilst at the same time delivering better value and a higher level of home nursing services.
