JCS is now an approved provider of aged care and our goal is to work alongside you to access all your care and well-being requirements so that you can get the most from your Home Care Package.
The recent Increasing Choice in Home Care changes by the Commonwealth Government ensure greater choice and flexibility for consumers. Home Care Package funding now follows the consumer. The changes are designed to ensure that the consumer remains in control of their own care and can change their care if they move to another area or want to change their provider for any reason.
At JCS, we promote a philosophy of healthy and active ageing, and strive to enable older members of our community to continue to live independently by providing high quality home and community support services.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?
We welcome all individuals from within the diverse aged care community of metropolitan Adelaide who are thinking about changing their home care package provider.
If you are currently receiving support from JCS, and awaiting allocation of a home care package in the future, you will have the choice to select JCS as your provider.
Consumer Directed Care is about supporting the consumer with their choices to access quality support services to remain living independently in their own home.
WHY CHOOSE JCS?
Founded in our Jewish ethos, we are a vibrant, welcoming community that is respectful of the needs of all people. Our mission is to provide a unique and quality service supporting the Adelaide community. We believe that as a small provider of aged care services and with our simplistic model and close knit team, we can easily innovate, redesign and quickly adapt to change and make decisions ensuring that the consumer is at the centre of everything that we do.
JCS will remain a small niche aged care provider with a focus on providing high quality home and community support for the South Australian Jewish Community, and welcome other community members to join the JCS family.
