Social Inclusion as part of a Home Care Package – By Interchange Australia Consultant, Ann Hancock
Social inclusion is defined as: the act of making all groups of people within a society feel valued and important.
Interchange Australia offers numerous programs aimed at all of the aged groups, we deliver services that promote social wellbeing as we acknowledge the importance of feeling included.
With the reforms to aged care that were implemented on 27th February 2017, social inclusion still plays a major part in keeping our most vulnerable people happy and living in their own homes.
Home Care packages offered by Interchange Australia will be tailored to your individual needs, take into account your wishes and choices and provide a service that is delivered by highly trained staff with extensive local knowledge.
Services that promote social inclusion may include: shopping, visiting, respite, social groups, individual social outings, where you are safe in the knowledge that whatever your choice, we will deliver a service that puts you in charge of your home care package.
By 2022, the vision for Australia’s aged care system will:
• be sustainable and affordable, long into the future;
• offer greater choice and flexibility for consumers;
• support people to stay at home, and part of their communities, for as long as possible ;
• encourage aged care businesses to invest and grow; and
• provide diverse and rewarding career options.
