God,
I've been ripped!!!
for the past year i've been paid at $10 ?? per hour which just recently went up to $12.40 i think per hour and was told i had all my entitlements noones ever mentioned childcare or even respite care.
I've been worn to a frazzle for the past 12months doing all his cares and treatments on my own with no help.
I'm going to have their %&$*@( heads!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then, this school holidays ive been cut by half thanks to a good old 'assessment' and looking at the irp am scheduled to be cut another 2 times between now and jan 2005.
I'm going to write to them this week for a written summary of actual rates and entitlements, they make me sick.
Blocky, stick with us, i have a disabled child myself and theyre bloody HORRIBLE in their treatment of us.
Do you also find you have no rights or privacy thanks to your childs so called 'care' team?

hi,
decided to call the 0800 number today and ask what my attendant care rate presently is.
I'm told i'm receiving (as my son is not presently in school, awaiting surgery)
the school holiday rate of;
2 hours 10 mins level 1 care @$10.40per hour (7 days a week
2 hours daily indirect supervision at $8.32 per hour (7 days per week.
I'm sure the rates went up at some time this year.
Can anyone tell me what the current rates are for non contracted workers and also WHEN the increase occurred, i've got a feeling were due back pay.
many thanks
tracey
