Home care and ageing at home has been a hot topic in recent months and today our podcast guest is Peter Scutt, the CEO and co-founder of Mable. Mable is an organisation that enables older Australians and those receiving disability support to connect with independent care and support workers in their local community. Peter explains how Mable started and explains why self-management should be the cornerstone of home care. It sounds like common sense, but Peter warns that it needs to be flexible and depends on the needs of each individual. For some people, going to church is important, he says, for others it is getting the cleaning done or playing bridge every Wednesday. Tune in to hear more and visit www.mable.com.au to sign up as a support provider or as someone who needs support.
