We can assist with applications for: 
 

HOME CARE (formerly CACPs, EACHs & EACHDs)

In reflection of the great growth in consumer choice to age at home for as long as possible, the last 5 ACARs have seen an enormous increase in the number of Home Care Packages applications that we have assisted clients with, and with an excellent success rate. In the 2011 ACAR, a very few packages were allocated with only WA being able to apply for EACH and EACHDs! 

 



CAPITAL GRANTS & ZRILs

We can assist with applications for capital grants, ZRILs and flexi care grants. In ACAR 2012/13 JU&A successfully applied for over $10million of ZRILs.

APPROVED PROVIDER STATUS

JU&A can assist with all aspects of seeking and  achieving approved provider status for the delivery of residential, home and flexible care from assisting with identification of key personnel; arranging police checks; to writing the full  application. 
 

 
              

EXTRA SERVICES

Extra services approval enhances income and allows new bond-paying residents to keep maximum pension entitlements and minimise Income-Tested Fees. 

JU&A is highly experienced in seeking and gaining ES status. Getting the application (and approval) wrong can give you an unworkable ES section in your facility.  We have successfully gained ES status for more than 150 facilities since the new benchmark-based system was introduced in 2003.
In the 2011 round, all of the 28 applications submitted by JU&A were approved, securing more than 22% of all new ES places nationwide!

We are also fully involved in the implementation of ES including marketing, staff training and setting flexible bond and fee arrangements.
