Mable in the Sydney Morning Herald: Self managing your care package another option.

Mable was featured on the Sydney Morning Herald website on Sunday 24 March as an option for people looking to self manage their Home Care Package.

The journey to receiving a home care package is complex and often confronting. Once an assessment has taken place and a package has been assigned, which could take up to eighteen months, there are then the complexities of choosing a home care provider. In an article published in the Sydney Morning Herald, “Self managing your care package another option,” the author suggests that “choosing the wrong one could mean losing half of your package in administration fees, case management fees and inflated service charges. Administration and case management are services that providers must deliver. Without them the package doesn’t operate.”

The article gives credit to ‘self management’ of a home care package. By using solutions such as Mable to find independent workers, and providers such as Let’s Get Care to host a package, those receiving funding are able to make considerable savings by negotiating directly with workers and pay lower overheads.

By self managing a package, people are typically able to save money which could mean up to double the hours of support, while choosing who comes into your home and when.
