Do you mean 'overnight supervision'.

Read wrong, made a typo, something like that???

Overnight supervision is where the caregiver only has to attend to go potty etc. This would be in the case of severally injuried persons who can not safely get themselves in and out of bed etc.

A girlfriend does home care and this is the shift she likes best as she has so little to do when the claimant is having a good night. The care giver can sleep but the claimant has a bell when they want attention.

This allows the claimant to live in their own house and be as independant as possible, with the caregiver there to handle the tough stuff.

The reasoning the govt likes this is because it is far cheaper than putting these disabled people in a govt subsidised rest home.

Of course most of us prefer to stay in our own homes, so 'overnight supervision' for safety sake is marvellous!!

Makes sence anyway.

Attendant care, Oversight supervision will be identified in a Critical needs assessment.

Something most ACC CM's seem to forget.

If the case your involved in hasn't had a critical needs assessment in the past 5 years write it into the IRP next time that is reviewed.

As for the actual assessment have the care givers attend for their input.. And if your able to persuade your GP to attend even better... Or suggest that in part the review is conducted at the GP's rooms because after all the GP's views should be taken into account when assessing the claimants rehabilitation/care requirements. Even a letter from the GP outlining his ideas on care/rehabilitation will help a great deal..

Guarantee as to reasonable care and skillSubject to section 41, where services are supplied to a consumer there is a guarantee that the service will be carried out with reasonable care and skill.

ACCs cheap and nasty home helps are minimum waged. Why do ACC home helps not know how to hang washing so it dries in the short time allocated? They're meant to know what they're doing but clearly don't have the training or will.

Or those available are duds. NEVEF NEVER EVER trust Geneva, or Medibank either. Geneva are renown incompetents. Medibank are unaccountable for destroyed or damaged property. Both are inconsistent so turn up whenever they please, not on scheduled days or times. And if you don't answer the door they get paid anyway, despite it being at an unscheduled day or time.
Geneva are notorious.
Friend had previous help via Taikura trust with few problems. But once she broke her ankle, ACCs contractors stepped in and they were nothing but trouble. She had worked in disability services and so familiar with the various agencies and Geneva was renown for being unreliable untrustworthy inconsistent. She also said those dip stick co ordinaries get paid $52 k to organise home helps and vet job applicants.
Total care can't be trusted to turn up on time or on the day and often don't arrive at all because their Admins have sent the workers elsewhere without notice or if any, very last minute.
Both agencies employ dud caregivers as admin, without necessary skills or qualifications.
Geneva staff are not only lazy and incompetent but known to steal from claimants.
One agency caregiver was rostered to look after a 92 yr old granny being cared for by her 75 y o injured daughter. The daughter hurt her back so ACC sent a non kiwi who never arrived to work except to coerce the 75 yo to signing the time sheets for duties she failed to turn up for.
