The government set ambitious targets of no one under the age of 65 being admitted to residential aged care (RAC) by 2022. While there has been modest progress on these targets there are still 3,435 people under 65 living in aged care, and each month another 44 enter.

This UpSkill workshop, brought to you by the Summer Foundation, will enable you to assist younger people living in aged care to access appropriate home and living supports through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

This is an interactive workshop via Zoom, facilitated by UpSkill Lead Linda Hughes.
There will be practical exercises, opportunity for group discussion and questions and answers. 

Learning objectives – after this workshop you will be able to:

  • Leverage the implementation of the government’s younger people in residential aged care (YPIRAC) Strategy and NDIS policy
  • Provide YPIRAC with information and examples of NDIS supports
  • Identify and understand responsibilities in the interface between the NDIS and aged care systems
  • Work together with RAC and NDIS professionals to lead a collaborative approach across service systems
  • Assist a person choosing to leave RAC to access appropriate supports to live well in the community

Who is this for:

  • Support coordinators
  • NDIS allied health professionals
  • Professionals assisting people with complex support needs including RAC providers, Nursing Unit Managers and lifestyle coordinators
