Your wellbeing – your plan
Recently Bob Ziegler from COTA WA met with the L I F E group to update members on developments in aged care under the new consumer directed care (CDC) model being implemented across Australia, and more recently in WA.
Under CDC it is the consumers who say what kind of services will help them in their senior years, not care providers telling them what they offer as a take-it-or-leave-it model.
Bob highlighted the issue of how we work out what kinds of services we need and suggested people develop a Wellbeing Action Plan covering things like:
- Where am I now?
- How well am I?
- Where do I want to be?
- How am I going to get there?
Jenni Ibrahim, Coordinator of L I F E has put together the notes from this discussion.
