2:10 PM MODELS OF CARE: Make Ends Meet – Diversify Funding Streams and Reassess Your Recruitment Strategy

A constant battle for providers is to do more with less. If you’re smart about your resources and can think outside of the box, you’ll be better placed to make ends meet and stay abreast of the Royal Commission. Learn how Jacaranda Village is doing just that by:

  • Being clever about manpower, recruiting internally as much as possible and re-assessing and adapting your internal employee skill mix, saving them up to $200K in a single recruitment period
  • Diversifying into home care through NDIS and supporting staff through this change 
  • Partnering with the NDIS to employ personal care workers and be more cost efficient
