For some, this has meant double the hours of care from their existing government funding.
Changes in store for Home Care Packages
Typically, they will spend around 35-50% of your budget on overheads – and give you limited input on what care you receive and when. Plus, if you’re unhappy with the service, you have limited options to change.
On 27 February 2017, the government introduced a new phase of Consumer Directed Care. The changes mean that your home care package is ‘attached’ to you, not your provider – so, if you’re not happy with the level or cost of your care you are receiving, you can switch providers.
By switching to a provider who works with Mable, you can choose the services you need, from the workers you like, at a price you’re happy with.
How is Mable helping clients double their care?
That’s because over 40% of her funding was being spent on fees and overheads, with the care being charged at $48 an hour – despite Fran’s care workers often earning only $22 an hour.
Luckily, their provider agreed to let Fran and her mum find and hire their own care workers through the Mable platform, also agreeing to reduce administration and case management costs. This left more funding to spend on the care itself – and with the average cost of workers on the Mable platform at $35 an hour, Fran and her mum were able to access 20-24 hours of care each week.
