In episode six of SCIA’s podcast Have The Nerve we discuss navigating support funding for older Australians with disability from the NDIS to My Aged Care.
You’ll hear lived experiences from Susan who sustained a brain injury in 2005 and was able to get onto the NDIS before she turned 65 and Di, who is the wife and primary carer of her husband, Gary who sustained a spinal cord injury in 2019 at the age of 70. They discuss and compare their experiences alongside our systemic advocate, Megan Bingham, who breaks down how the funding works, what’s changing and how you can advocate.
