Seniors Security Rebate back in full Swing with the Re-elected McGowan Government
This could mean that tha SOS Pendant for Seniors rebate might be back.
A rebate of up to $400 for the purchase of home security and safety equipment will be back on the table now the McGowan team have been re-elected.
The SOS Pendant for Seniors rebate used to be available but it was canned in 2015 and, this new initiative hasn’t been confirmed as of yet.
It can, however, be used for improving deadlocks, adding security on windows, sensor lights and safety equipment in case of a fire.
Mr McGowan said “The Seniors Safety and Security rebate was incredibly popular, prior to being axed by the Liberal National Government. It helped to keep them safe and gave them peace of mind in their homes”
“we will also establish Elder Rights WA to support seniors and combat elder abuse, which is experienced by 4.6 per cent of people over the age of 65, each year.”
What this could mean is that elderly can possibly look forward to obtaining an SOS alarm to help keep them safe at home knowing that from a push of a button, they will get help fast.
As the author of this blog, I understand by firsthand of how well this government have implemented measures on abuse after deciding to take care of my mother full time.
It was a great experience to nurse ones’ mother to end of life at home, but it was also refreshing to see certain measures were in place such as how people perceive you to be, collaborations between all stake holders to ensure the client or elderly person is safe from financial or physical abuse.
However, this new initiative to address elder abuse is essential and I sincerely hope that it is successful ensuring older Western Australians feel taken car of, can feel safe and offer peace of mind know that they have an advocate.
Whether the re-introduced home security and safety equipment covers the acquisition of an SOS Emergency Pendant time will tell as the office have not been able to confirm it.
