Discussing home care options with your ageing parents?

Posted by Linda Summerton on Dec 20, 2018 7:00:00 PM

Growing Older Doesn't Have to Be Scary:

But quite frankly it is. Losing the ability to care for oneself can not only be a risk to personal safety, but it is difficult to come to terms with mentally and emotionally. Often its left to the children to broach the subject of Mum and or Dad needing home care, - this can be a daunting prospect but can be made more comfortable and more effective by careful research and planning.

Medical Aids Subsidy Scheme (MASS)

Queensland Transition to NDIS Assistive Technology

Please note this information has been reproduced from a flyer released today by Queensland Health. For ease of use we have transcribed to a blog post!! 

The Medical Aids Subsidy Scheme (MASS) has collated information from Queensland Government websites to assist our clients and prescribers by noting when responsibility is planned to transfer from state schemes/ service providers to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This is not intended to be a comprehensive summary but a guide as it applies to MASS services. The Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors has been designated the Lead Agency for the transition of Queensland to NDIS for people with a disability aged under 65 years. The Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors is coordinating the transition to the NDIS with other Queensland Government departments that support Queenslanders with disability in areas such as health, education, transport and housing. The below link will take you to the website containing this information:

Professional Boundaries between you and your worker

Posted by Linda Summerton on Dec 6, 2018 4:40:00 PM

With the onset of NDIS and client directed funding, I thought it may be timely to republish this blog post.

All formal working relationships need rapport and trust to function well. This is particularly relevant to the relationship between an individual and the person/s who are employed to provide them with home care – carers or support workers. It is certainly important that the carer makes sure client’s feel at ease with approaching and relating to them – but it is equally important that the lines don’t become blurred.

What is Assistive Technology in the NDIS?

Posted by Janet Gibbins on Nov 21, 2018 5:35:14 AM

 Assistive Technology, also known as AT, is the equipment a person might use to help them with everyday tasks that they wouldn’t be able to do on their own, or makes it easier and safer to do. For a person living with disability, this might be equipment or systems which help with moving around the home or community, communicating with other people, processing information and other daily tasks. Every person living with a disability has different needs. AT may be included in your NDIS plan if it is identified as a reasonable and necessary support that meets your needs, and supports you to achieve better outcomes in life.
