About The CarePath Program

The CarePath program provides seniors and family members with expert home care guidance and advice.

We'll take all the stress out of organising home care services and save you significant time and heartache through the process.

This service is highly beneficial to those in any of the below situations:

9e91b793-779c-4fcf-89f1-eb7a5c9dfcbe.png
  • In need of home care support but don't know where to start

  • In need of home care support but stuck on a waiting list

  • Currently receiving home care services but needing more support

  • Step 1: The Needs Assessment
    One of our friendly and caring CarePath Navigators will first take the time to get a good understanding of the day-to-day challenges that are present. No matter how small or large these challenges are, we'll be sure to have them all written down so that there is a clear picture of the situation to resolve. ​ We'll then discuss with the care recipient and family members their preferred solutions to such challenges. If you're stuck on ideas, your experienced home care navigator can offer comforting suggestions. Now that a good understanding of the situation is in place, the various government-funded home care support options and subsidies can be presented.
  • Step 2: Getting Registered With The Aged Care Government Department
    Your CarePath Navigator will then speak to relevant government departments and assessment teams to advocate on your behalf to assist with getting registered for the required home care support services. ​ This service is highly beneficial for those who find it difficult or stressful to speak to a government department call centre about the challenges they are experiencing. ​
  • Step 3: Preparing For The Aged Care Assessment
    So that the care recipients and any family members are well prepared for the upcoming home care assessment, your CarePath Navigator will step you and your family members through a pre-assessment coaching session. This will ensure everyone is well prepared for the upcoming aged care assessment; everyone understands the questions they will be asked and can articulate the challenges they are looking to solve clearly and productively. Without such preparation, it is widespread for people to be under-assessed for their genuine support needs. This is because an assessor will often not fully appreciate the full extent of the struggles and challenges that were indeed going on behind the scenes. ​ If an underassessment does occur, it can take many months, if not years, to rectify the situation. So it's essential to get assessed the first time correctly. ​
  • Step 4: Review & Explain
    Once the aged care assessment has taken place, you will be notified by the relevant government agency within 1-2 weeks of the assessment outcome. Usually, this will be the government's "My Aged Care" department. Understanding the various aspects of the My Aged Care assessment letter and the terminology used can be highly confusing for many. Your CarePath Navigator will take the time to explain the assessment outcome letter to the care recipient and family members and follow up with government departments if additional support is required.
  • Step 5: Finding Services
    With the relevant home care approvals now in place, it's time to find service providers that can begin delivering your required services. This can often be a stressful and frustrating experience for many care recipients and family members as it can be tough to find an aged care service provider available to take on additional clients. To alleviate this stress, your CarePath Navigator will do the research for you and provide a short list of local service providers available to take on additional clients.
  • Step 6: Maximise Value
    In the same way a person should carry out due diligence and negotiation when hiring a service provider for any household or day-to-day service (eg, a plumber, a car mechanic, a gardener, etc); hiring someone to provide home care support is no different. Your CarePath Navigator can book meetings with preferred home care providers and negotiate pricing and service agreement terms on behalf of the family. This ensures maximum value and consumer experience.
  • Step 7: Wellbeing Check-In
    To ensure things are going well and all needs are met, your CarePath Navigator will conduct a six-week follow-up once home care services have started. If additional needs aren't being met, your CarePath Navigator can provide further guidance and advocacy to address the challenges.

“Understanding what's available for Aged Care is not easy.  As a newly retired person, I found all the information very confusing.  Then I found VillageLocal.  At first I felt embarrassed to ask a question about a service I was looking for, however, my question was answered immediately with kindness and concern for my situation.  I recommend these lovely people to anyone looking for assistance. I know I will be turning to them whenever I have a question from now on.”

Our Story

In 2017, Jim Moraitis witnessed the challenges his 87-year-old neighbour, Lillian, faced in the lead-up to her ultimately having a fall, breaking her hip and ending up in a nursing home...

As a Biomedical Engineer with extensive experience across the Australian healthcare system, Jim realised there wasn't enough being done to prepare seniors and their family members to successfully age in place.

 

So he took the challenge into his own hands, to better the situation.

 

After years of experimenting, researching, and personally speaking with thousands of seniors and family caregivers across Australia, the solution became clear...

 

...Helping people stay socially engaged, aware of their current challenges, fully informed about their local support options and empowered to take action are the necessary ingredients for success. 

The CarePath Program combines technology with human expertise to support older people across Australia remain independent, safe and well in the homes and communities they know and love.
