Today, the overwhelming desire for many Australians is to remain at home and active in their community as they age.
Ageing well means different things to different people. For some, it might mean staying in touch with family, or pursuing a life long 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 keep living independently.
It means that for the first time, you have control over thousands of dollars in government home care funding each year.
A new phase of Consumer Directed Care is here….
Changes to legislation mean that you can now use your government funding to shop around for the best deal when it comes to your aged care services. It allows greater flexibility, choice and affordability when it comes to making choices about your home care.
With Better Caring, you can choose and connect with your care workers directly, saving you thousands in administration fees. For some people, it has meant accessing double the hours of care from their existing government home care package.
