Local people, local support

Accessing aged care and disability support in rural and remote areas can be challenging, making it difficult for people to get the care they need to stay living at home and in the communities they know and love. That’s why Mable’s Community Managed program (known as Staying In Place in Western Australia), is focused on creating localised, safeguarded and community-led solutions. We strive to overcome traditional workforce challenges and meet the needs of people living in rural, regional and remote Australia.

Mable works in partnership with a local coordinating hub within the community. The local coordinating hub provides on-the-ground support to assist people in navigating aged care, accessing a Home Care Package and coordinating their services and supports. Mable generates a local care solution made up of independent support workers and creates training opportunities to build their capacity to deliver the care required.

Currently, more than 60 communities across Australia take part in the Mable Community Managed program. Together we are working to deliver better aged care and disability services that not only offer flexibility, choice and greater value, but also generate broader economic, health and social benefits that support the future of rural, regional and remote communities.

Customer review

Before Mable came to town, people couldn’t get support because of where they lived. Traditional providers tend to concentrate closer to the metropolitan areas, because it’s not economical for them to come out to small towns. People were doing it really tough.

Customer review

Ageing at home or in a community that feels safe surrounded by familiar people is vital to regional communities. Helping people stay in their homes and community can reduce depression, loneliness or feelings of isolation. That's the driving force behind Staying in Place. we're not building buildings, we're building capacity.

How it works

  • Host information sessions: Our team will hold information sessions in your community specifically tailored to ensure people with a Home Care Package, or those eligible for one, are well-informed to make decisions and receive the care they need.
  • Build a community of local independent support workers: We will support you in building up a community of independent support workers. This means local people supporting each other. Every session booked through the Mable platform comes with high-level insurance, and our Australia-based customer support team are available to answer any questions.
  • Establish a coordinating hub: We’ll help you set up a local coordinating hub and provide the assistance you need to coordinate the care and support requirements of residents in your community.
