Can my Support Coordinator and/or Allied Health Professional be at the Meet and Greet (M&G)?
Your Support Coordinator and/or Allied Health Professional can also attend the meeting if you would like. Note that they will likely bill you for their time.
Please remember, if you or the allied health assistants decide to not proceed after the meet and greet, we can continue the search for another allied health assistants. However, if you ask your Support Coordinator and/or Allied Health Professional every meet and greet you may be spending your funding unnecessarily.
Our recommendation is that the meet and greet just occurs between the client, the client’s family/ carer and our allied health assistant. This way, it’s free for the client.
Then, if both parties decide to proceed, the allied health assistant will then be required to meet with the Allied Health Professional to have a handover.
