Currently EAI is able to provide limited funding packages to people over 65 who are living at home with a disability.
These packages are funded by Department of Health (DOH). They are valid for one financial year and must be reapplied at the end of the financial year when they expire. This funding can allow clients to have supports in home or out in the community. EAI can support and assist clients to participate in everyday activities including going shopping, going out for lunch dates or coffee and even going away for a weekend.
This funding is in conjunction with The My Aged Care program, and often our funding is allocated whilst on the waiting list for larger aged care supports or vacancies in appropriate aged care facilities.
Clients are encouraged to apply to My Aged Care www.online myagedcare.gov.au or via phone 1800 200 422.
If you would like further information on this funding please contact head office on 02 4577 2150.
