Get more hours of support by self-managing your funding

Hi all,

Today I wanted to speak to those of you who are receiving Government funding, whether it be a Home Care Package or NDIS support and how Care Hive is helping make your funding go further!

Have you considered self-managing your NDIS plan or Home Care Package?

When you self-manage your NDIS plan or Home Care Package you have: 

  • a way to choose the support workers and other contractors you want to use
  • the freedom to make decisions which provide the best value for your unique circumstances 
  • control of how your funding is spent
  • a way of directly paying for services, products and activities relevant to your care 

Overall, you have much more control, choice and flexibility.  And if you self-manage a Home Care Package, you will be paying reduced care management fees to the home care provider hosting your package, giving you more funds to spend on care and support.

The Care Hive App has been designed to support consumers who self-manage their government funding (or who pay privately for their services).  If you self-manage your funding, Care Hive makes finding, booking, managing and paying for services simple and secure. And you can trust that Care Hive has vetted all the providers that join our platform including police clearances, qualifications and insurance for the services being delivered.  

Care Hive is FREE for customers to join and use, and each day more and more quality care and support providers are joining Care Hive, so you are very likely to find a wonderful local person who is “just right” for your unique situation.

Quality service providers are attracted to Care Hive because we market and promote their services directly to you, the customer, and our low platform fee means they earn more for every hour of service they provide than they would on other platforms.

Here’s what one of our NDIS self-managed customers had to say about his Care Hive experience: 

Care Hive allows me to manage all of my bookings in one spot, payments happen automatically and I get an invoice as soon as my booking is complete. It’s great and so simple to use!
