CEO Update – February

Over the past year, I’ve made reference to establishing the groundwork and the foundations as Lifebridge prepares for the upcoming industry changes. This year these industry changes come into effect and with our thorough planning, we are prepared. But more importantly, we are equipped to support you through these changes and to make the transition as easy as possible.
Home Care Packages will be available in the coming months and in 4 months’ time, the NDIS will begin to roll-out across Northern New South Wales.
Already we’ve run a number of initiatives to help support customers and I’m pleased to be able to introduced another initiative – our NDIS Pre-Planning Sessions.
Led by our NDIS Champions a series of Pre-Planning sessions will be released shortly to help you develop your first plan under the NDIS. Additionally, we have also developed a Lifebridge NDIS Pre-Planning Guide and Workbook to help you through this process. Further information can be found within.

While there is plenty of change about and it can be daunting at times, I like to reference one quote in particular, from George Bernard Shaw who stated that “Progress is impossible without change…”. So while we are in a period of change, our resolve is with the fact that we are heading in the right direction. And soon we will see the benefits that comes with change.
