Simplifying the recent reforms to government funded home care packages

With uncertainty arising from the Australian Government’s recent changes to the way home care services are delivered to older Australians, Nick McDonald and his team at Prestige Inhome Care set to work developing a straightforward and easy to understand 90 second video to bring clarity and transparency to what can be an overwhelming process to some of the most vulnerable in our community.

Within this video package shown below, it is explained that from February 27 2017, funding for home care packages will follow the consumer, allowing you to choose the home care provider that best suits your needs and goals.

With so many questions arising, such as ‘Which service can best suit my needs and goals?’ and ‘What do I need in my care plan?’ – Nick and team at Prestige Inhome Care know that stepping into the world of aged care can be overwhelming. To assist you with your questions, the team are at the ready to answer any of your questions, whether that be over the phone on 1300 10 30 10 or in person at one of the many Prestige InHome Care locations throughout Victoria or within your own home.

“It is really important that you have a tailored plan to best suit your needs,” said Nick McDonald. “Whether you require Personal Care, Nursing, Case Management, Home and Garden Maintenance or Domestic Assistance, we will help you through the process and even assist with completing the paperwork with you.”

As leaders in the industry, Prestige Inhome Care is known for their service, care, reliability and transparency, specifically when it comes to administration, management or exit fees. Nick continues, “We believe that you should be able to spend the funds you receive from the Government on actual care, and we help you to achieve this by capping the costs and ensuring that your dollar goes further, to help you feel cared for and happy in your own home.”
