There are good people in the world and some of them clearly work at Suncorp and Youngcare. Thanks to the support of Suncorp, Youngcare are offering grants of between $2000-10,000 to help support people between the ages of 18 and 65 with high needs and at risk of entering aged care to stay out aged care and living at home.
We’ve previously been excited to let you know about the NSW/ACT round of grants and are excited again that it is now Queensland’s turn! Youngcare At Home Care Grants provide between $2000 and $10,000 to help people afford supports necessary to continue living at home and stay out of aged care facilities.
Youngcare At Home Care Grants have been used to assist with the cost of:
- Respite care
- A water-powered hydraulic lift
- In-home support
- A wheelchair ramp
- Air conditioning
- Power wheelchair and pressure cushion
- Electrical adjustable bed and ceiling hoist
Applications for Queensland are now open and close on Wednesday 14 September 2016. More information about how to apply can be found here.
This awesome initiative is made possible by Suncorp, so well done Suncorp for supporting the Youngcare At Home Care Grants. The program has distributed over $3.09million to 528 successful applicants since 2009.
If you know someone in the Sunshine state who is in need of the Youngcare At Home Care Grants, please do share this info with them. Best of luck!
