Home Care Packages
Home care packages are uniquely designed to provide clients with a comprehensive level of care to maintain independence and safety at home.
If you are looking for:
- Assistance in cleaning your home
- Assistance with personal care
- Someone to clean your gutters and tidy your garden
- Support or transport to appointments and accessing the community
- Support with shopping and food preparation
Then a Home Care Page might be for you.
Home Care Package were created for Australians who need care services at home whose needs are more complex and are outside the eligibility requirements for the Commonwealth Home Support Program.
If you are eligible, our team can support you in a range of different ways:
Home and Garden Maintenance
Assistance to keep your home and garden safe. This could include gutter cleaning, yard clean ups, mowing your lawns, changing smoke alarm batteries or replacing lightbulbs.
There may be times you need assistance with activities such as showering or dressing.
Whether you need help with house cleaning, hanging out washing, bed making, mopping, and vacuuming floors, we’ll work alongside you to get the tasks done.
Need assistance with grocery shopping, bill paying, getting to appointments, or connecting with your local community group?
