Part of the issue with disability and the world of funding, before the NDIS and since. Before the NDIS I had a Case Manager (further more referred to as a CM) and since the ‘new’ language, is my CM is called a Service Co-ordinator.
What’s that? You wonder who came up with that and how long it took them.
I recently changed SC (yes, Service Co-ordinator) and my first sit down meeting with her mum was here and mum and I kept using the ‘old’ language of CM. Every time my new SC corrected us. She apologized, but said she would get us in the habit of using the correct term.
I told her that was fine, because I would eventually stab her to death with a fork.
Yes, she laughed.
As has everyone else I’ve suggested it. They know I jest. But brief second their faces drain of blood is totally worth it.
