Enabling Good Lives
Mycare is the way to find workers, create contracts, schedule visits, and pay workers. There is no signup fee. Our goal is to help you maximise your budget allocation to live your life.
Managing supports can be complex
Mycare is designed so you can have as much or as little support as you need to manage your own support requirements:
- Individuals can organise all their own supports
- Family members can help to organise supports for friends or family
- Individuals and their families can share the responsibility for organising care
- If you work with a tūhono, connector or coach they can also have a Mycare profile and help organise support with you, especially if the process is new.
There are many advantages to contracting rather than employment for both workers and the people using their services. Workers who contract are not liable for secondary tax and can claim back work related expenses such as mileage and vehicle maintenance through the IRD. Often support workers have more than one client, so these are important considerations that can have direct financial benefits over employment.
With contracting you don’t have to take on the liabilities of becoming an employer. Mycare’s easy template allows you to generate a contract once you’ve found a worker and you have negotiated their pay rate. The Ministry of Health and IRD recognise contracting as a legitimate option for people receiving EGL funding.
Managing my finances and reporting on spending
Mycare’s tools keep a detailed record of every visit, what happened during each visit, and how much the visit cost. This information can be downloaded in easy-to-read reports that you can submit to funders, so they can verify the money is going to the right places.
Most people’s support networks consist of workers, family members, whānau, volunteers, and friends. You can invite them to join your support circle so they can see what is happening in one place and be notified when there is something they need to know.
