If you listened to our latest episode of Have The Nerve you would have heard about the differences in aged care funding for older Australians with a disability, with particular focus on funding if you are ineligible for the NDIS.
In the episode Megan, from our Policy and Advocacy team, spoke about how aged care for older Australians with a disability is capped and often means tested, meaning that not only are services and supports limited but often older Australians have to prioritise important care and think about what they need to live without.
Spinal Life Australia has recently launched their campaign Disability Doesn’t Discriminate, to help end age discrimination when it comes to support funding.
We would love for you to get on board and sign the petition. Head to https://disabilitydoesntdiscriminate.com.au/.
