I’ve a very dear friend, who’s spent 3 months in a Rehab hospital awaiting additional support hours at home. Unfortunately she has learnt first-hand how dysfunctional and crisis-driven the disability support system is and how it's seriously in need of an overhaul.
The state agency scratches to find $120 a day in support for her at home while a bed in this acute ward costs $600 a day. The nurses tell her they've had people in the same situation for up to 2 years.
I’ve added my support to the campaign, I just can’t imagine, how I’d feel waiting indefinitely in Rehab, at such a young vibrant age. You can send a message to your local Premier about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) before Friday. From: http://everyaustraliancounts.com.au/
…You just never know, what’s around the corner!!!
