What does elvesCARE do?
elvesCARE is a service for people with disabilities, who require in-home or community care in their area.
We cover round the clock care, daily assistance, or casual drop-ins.
What makes us different?
As an elvesCARE Worker you will be a subcontractor within the network. This means that you will require your own ABN and take care of your own taxes. In return, we will cover your super as well as your insurance.
We are adament to engage workers with a mature and caring nature and the relevant qualification.
We offer a referral system that enables you to collect points which can be redeemed for NLP based training/coaching by mindXcel, or money.
Events for our clients enable you to expand your network and meet potential clients.
How many hours do I work?
That really depends on how many hours you want to work.
It’s up to you!
How much can I earn?
That depends on the service you deliver to the client.
Depending on the service, the fees range from $30.- to $80 per hour.
How does payment work?
How do I get paid?
elvesCARE support workers are paid when a shift has been booked, worked and approved. After each shift we’ll ask you to confirm your hours before we send it to the person you support, for final approval. When they have approved the booking, our finance team will process it.
We will collect the payment for the services provided, from either the disabled person (self-managed), the plan manager (plan managed) or the NDIS.
Once we have received payment, you will be paid immediately.
If I incur expenses during a elvesCARE shift, what am I reimbursed for? In most instances people seeking support will cover the cost of expenses incurred during a shift unless it is reasonable that the worker pays for themselves (by bringing or buying food for a routine meal, for example). For essential items like public transport or tickets to an event (where there is no companion card or a companion card is not accepted), the cost should be covered by the person seeking support. We recommend you and the people you support discuss any potential expenses that may be incurred before the shift so arrangements and boundaries can be set.
What do I need to get started?
There are a few things that are required by law.
1. A first aid certificate
2. A current police check. It must be less than 3 years old from the date of issue (See for Victoria)
3. Working with children checks are state based and required for all care workers offering services to children (See for Victoria)
