Ageing well means different things to different people. For some, it might mean staying in touch with family, or pursuing a lifelong passion, for others it might be about connecting to the arts, or getting outdoors and remaining active.
The government has recognised this individuality with the introduction of Consumer Directed Care, legislation that’s designed to put consumers in the driver’s seat when making choices about the types of care and services they want to remain living independently, and who provides them.
A great example of someone making the most of their home care package, is local Dalby resident, Betty. Betty is 81 years young and has been able to live independently due to the support of Cura Care and Better Caring.
Approved Home Care Provider Cura Care, assists Betty with managing her funding, while supporting her to choose and self-schedule independent workers directly from BetterCaring.com.au, based on her needs and preferences. As a result, Betty has connected with independent worker, Myyria. Myyria provides Betty with companionship services such as cooking, playing cards, and shopping. Betty also goes on weekly adventures with Myyria to visit the Rhubarb Farm near Toowoomba.
