While the government may have dropped the ball on the aged care retention bonus payment, we're keeping an eye out for members' interests.
We've contacted the CEO a number of times to confirm they're applying for the payment, but so far we’ve heard nothing.
In order to be eligible for the payment, which will apply to those doing homecare packages, an organisation first needs to throw their hat in the ring.
So far there are only two big home care providers who haven’t got back to us, and unfortunately KinCare is one of them - we'll continue to lobby the government to extend eligibility but we want to make sure KinCare is getting it in the first place.
If any member's heard any new info about this from the boss, please get in touch ASAP.
