Shared Management

Tardiss Shared Management places family in charge of their care needs

Who is eligible:

  • All participants who receive block funding from DCCS or private funded participants.
  • Families who want to drive the directions and vision of the support provision.
  • Families/guardians and participants  committed to the development of the participant with a disability.
  • Families/guardians and participants who are able to contribute to the planning, operation and review of an Participant’s service.
  • Families/guardians and participants provide a significant level of scrutiny and an overview of workers within the home. Can provide feedback to coordinators concerning service quality and development.
  • Families/guardians and participants can participate in the employment processes for support workers.
  • Families/guardians and participants can actively participate in planning and review processes for the participant.

Shared management is an agreed management arrangement where TARDISS and the family work together within an agreed plan.

How does it work?

Shared management is an agreement between Tardiss and the family as to the amount of responsibility the family is prepared or has the capacity to accept in the management of carers and funding for the participant.  Tardiss has established a sliding scale of fees.  The greater the responsibility the family is prepared/able to administer, the lower the administration fees required by Tardiss and the more money for the direct care and well-being of the participant.

For example:

A family may elect to hire, roster and supervise their preferred carers but require Tardiss to train and pay them. An agreement is determined by what the family is capable of managing.

Are there tools available?

Tardiss provides tools and training to the families. Most importantly Tardiss provides the backup.

Families benefit because they:

  • avoid excessive organisational costs that which other agencies charge
  • have greater choice over who works for them
  • have greater flexibility in the types of support they use
  • have more control over who, how and when workers provide support.

Shared management is the way of the future

Families take the lead in managing the care for their disabled loved one. Families tell Tardiss what they need in the way of care and what they can do in the way of administration in providing that care. Tardiss encourage the empowerment of families to facilitate the kind of care which everyone is comfortable with.
