REMAINING AT HOME IS OUR DESIRE

FEDERAL BUDGET HOME CARE ANNOUNCEMENTS WELCOMED BY REGION’S
HEALTH SERVICES

We’re happier and healthier when we age at home rather than in a nursing home. That’s why more Australians are seeking support via the Commonwealth’s Home Care Packages Program to do just so.

As part of recent budget announcements, Treasurer Scott Morrison pledged an extra 1.6 billion dollars for the program which funds service and clinical care purchases to help seniors remain at home.

“The announcement was great news for seniors as more packages will become available,’ says Community Interlink Governance Chair, Suzanne Miller.

“There’s a real trend towards our elderly wanting to stay at home. Largely because we all understand just how good it is for us.”
