Increasing choice in home care

brisbane home care assistance packagesOne type of assistance subsidised by the Australian Government is Home Care Packages. The purpose of Home Care Packages is to help older Australians living at home to access a range of clinical care, personal and support services to assist with day-to-day activities.

From 27 February 2017, there will be some important changes to Home Care Packages, to give consumers more choice about their care and who delivers it.

My Aged Care will assign packages to people from a national queue, based on their individual needs and circumstances.

The good news is that Jubilee Community Care will no longer be restricted to a small geographical area in which it can deliver Home Care Packages.

There will no longer be any limitation on the number of packages we can provide!

If you already have a Home Care Package provided by Jubilee Community Care, you don’t need to do anything. Services will continue as usual.

If you have been assessed as eligible to receive a Home Care Package but haven’t started receiving care yet, we urge you to contact us. It is possible that you could commence a Home Care Package with Jubilee Community Care prior to 27 February 2017, thereby avoiding the need to wait for allocation of a package from the national queue.

Please call your Coordinator on 07 3871 3220 if you have any questions and we will talk you through these changes.

Dementia Support

dementia care for the brisbane community
We are committed in 2017 to supporting our community and one of the initiatives is our Dementia Support & Education Sessions.

Is your loved one part of the 353,800 Australians living with Dementia? Are you one of the 1.2 million involved in caring for these Australians? Do you have unanswered questions?

We invite you to join us for bi-monthly sessions throughout the year with the first one kicking off on Tuesday, 28 February with an “Introduction to Dementia” at the Toowong Bowls Club, 59 Gailey Road Taringa Qld 4068. The format will include a one hour education session with morning tea followed by an informal discussion. Receive eduction, information, support, ideas, tips and techniques as well as meet others who are in similar situations.

Jubilee Community Care has over 27 years experience of supporting people in the aged care sector and we want to provide older people and their families with education and practical support as they travel together through this next chapter in their lives. This is important to us as we support older people to live at home or with their families, helping them to stay connected and engaged in the community. Our staff are qualified and skilled to support you and provide a forum within these sessions that will offer strategies and empathy for those living with Dementia.
