Once we know the task can be delegated we’ll need to decide what level of support you need. This is to make sure we include enough funding in your plan for the registered nurse to assess, train and supervise the worker doing the delegated task.

There are three levels of support. These are based on the number of tasks and the complexity of the supports you need. The levels of support are:

  • Low
  • Intermediate
  • High.

Low level supports

Low level supports means you need a registered nurse to delegate tasks in up to 2 disability-related health support areas. For example, if you need supports provided in only one or 2 disability-related health support areas, such as, diabetes management supports and podiatry supports.

What level of worker will we fund if you need low level supports?

We will also include enough funding for a support worker to be trained by the registered nurse and to provide the delegated tasks. If you need low level supports we’ll include funding for a support worker at the High Intensity Supports, Disability Support Worker Level 2.

Intermediate level supports

Intermediate level supports means you need a registered nurse to delegate tasks in 3 different disability-related health support areas. For example, continence, diabetes management and wound and pressure care supports.

What level of worker will we fund if you need intermediate level supports?

We will also include enough funding for a support worker to be trained by the registered nurse and to provide the delegated tasks. If you need intermediate level supports we’ll include funding for a support worker at the High Intensity Supports, Disability Support Worker Level 2.

High level supports

High level supports means you need a registered nurse to delegate tasks in 4 or more disability-related health support areas. For example, if you need a task provided for epilepsy supports, wound and pressure care, nutrition supports and diabetes management supports.

What level of worker will we fund if you need high level supports?

We will also include enough funding for a support worker to be trained by the registered nurse and to provide the delegated tasks. If you need high level supports, we’ll include funding for a support worker at the High Intensity Supports, Disability Support Worker Level 3.
