Submission to Increasing Choice in Home Care – Stage 1

Vision 2020 Australia has responded to the Department of Social Services Increasing Choice in Home Care (Stage 1). Vision 2020 Australia strongly supports the objectives and principles of a consumer directed care approach, transitioning to a culture in which consumers will no longer be restricted in their choice of providers will reduce red tape for consumers and ensure that they are able to remain engaged with their community and live a life of their choosing.

However, Vision 2020 Australia notes that people over 65 must have the option for a specialist assessment undertaken by a specialist service provider in blindness and vision impairment to ensure they are receiving the most appropriate services and supports.
