On August 31, the Australian Financial Review wrote: “If the goal is to age gracefully in your own home, with support and with or without government assistance, there are options.” Mable, formerly Mable, has been recognised as an in-home aged care solution for Australians waiting for a Home Care Package.
According to the Australian Financial Review (AFR), 108,000 people are now waiting for a Home Care Package. Since December 2017, over 3,000 more people have been added to the waiting list for Home Care Packages.
In an article featuring Mable, What aged care costs if you’re staying at home, the AFR states that the wait for a Home Care Package is not a viable option for ageing Australians if they are hoping to avoid residential care, while online alternatives such as Mable can offer an easier and more affordable way of seeking and choosing in-home support.
As written by the AFR, the Mable platform removes the hassle of administration, offers workers insurance and cuts hourly costs of support by about 20-30 per cent.
Mable is a solution for ageing Australians wishing to receive support swiftly and simply. It’s also the first in-home support option that allows clients to seek, choose and self-schedule independent workers that suit them.
While aged care providers charge support at $48 per hour and other online providers at $42 per hour, Mable offers connections to independent workers who provide aged care and support for an average of $30-$40 per hour. That means clients can receive double the hours of support while using Mable.
Whether a person is waiting for a Home Care Package, has a Home Care Package or wants to pay privately for aged care, Mable is a suitable online alternative that can help individuals connect with independent workers in their local area and community.
