Of the 1.2 million Australians who receive aged care services, only 22% have access to some form of support or care at home, and 71% live without accessing government-subsidised aged care services*.
Help us to provide more home nursing care and mobility to those in our community that need it most.
We are pleased that during this global health crisis, we have been able to continue our home nursing and patient transport services.
Throughout this pandemic we have been following advice and guidelines from Australian Government Department of Health.
In response, we have been swift to implement our own management plan taking necessary precautions and changes for the health, wellbeing and safety of our clients, staff and community. This meant that some weeks ago, we suspended our Day Tripper program.
If you are wondering if it is time for supported care at home for yourself or a loved one, there is help available.
While many people continue to care for family in their homes, there are specialist support services available through government subsidised schemes and private services to help care for those most in need.
Over the weekend, our CEO Jill Deering was interviewed by Madeline Tynan of the Tynan Group to discuss how Clever Care NOW has adapted to changes during the pandemic and how, thanks to government and club funding, and extra protective measures, we are able to continue to care for people in their homes.
