Home care services

Your lifestyle, your goals, in your home. That's what it's all about for us. 
We work with you to promote the things that matter to you the most so you can have the life you want in the comfort of your own home.

Funding and costs: what are my options?

You can either pay for your care services privately or you may be eligible for government funding. Here's what you need to know about each:

Home Care Packages

If you're eligible, the Federal Government can provide funding for your home care services with their Home Care Packages program.

They work by allocating funds to pay for the care services you need so you can continue to live independently. The amount of funding you receive depends on your care needs and your income.

Terms and conditions apply

Eligibility

You need to have your eligibility assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Service and they will determine your funding level.

Availability

There are a limited number of Home Care Packages available at any given time. Once you have been approved, there may still be a waiting list.

Your contribution

You may need to pay a part of your total funding amount, including a Basic Daily Fee (which we choose to waive) and an Income Tested Fee if your income is over a certain amount.

Choosing your provider

You can choose the care provider you want and change providers any time. It's important to consider your options and choose a provider you trust.

Fees

Providers can charge fees for administration and management of your Home Care Package. Make sure you understand and compare the fees each provider will charges to your package.

How to change your Home Care Package provider

Changing your in-home care provider is easy and we can help you with the whole process if you'd like. Get in touch with us or find out how you change providers:

1

Step 1

Tell your current provider

You need to tell your existing provider that you want to change to a new provider. You also need to agree on a date for the final time they will provide care for you, called a 'cessation date'.

2

Step 2

Tell My Aged Care

My Aged Care needs to know you're changing providers. Let them know you're changing and that you want to reactivate your 'Unique Referral Code' so you can give the code to your new provider.

3

Step 3

Start with your new provider

Finally, you need to enter a Home Care Agreement with your new provider and they will start providing your care. Any unspent funds in your Home Care Package move with with you to your new provider.

Remember: Some care care providers have minimum notice periods or exit fees when you change providers. Check your Home Care Agreement or ask your current provider to find out if these apply to you.

Reliability

We always deliver on our promises. We need to be dependable to provide the best care.

Positivity

We believe in positive ageing by promoting health, wellbeing, and creating opportunities.

Determination

We never give up and we always look for new solutions and opportunities.

Respect

We earn the trust of our clients and their families with respect for them and their relationships.
