Concerned about losing your independence? How Home Care can help…

February 6, 2017

A solution for people concerned about losing their independence and moving into aged care facilities is home care, which can assist people in maintaining their independence at home.

Home care services can include:

  • Support services – such as help with washing and ironing, house cleaning, gardening, basic home maintenance, home modifications related to your care needs and transport to help you with shopping, visit your doctor or attend social activities.
  • Personal care – such as help with showering or bathing, dressing, nursing, allied health and other clinical services – hearing services and vision services, care co-ordination and case management.
  • Home Care Packages – depending on an individual’s needs, a Home Care Package provides a co-ordinated package of services tailored to meet specific care needs to help the person stay in their own home and also provide choice in the way care and services are provided in the home. Home Care Packages are funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing to support eligible people over the age of 65 years with the essential home care assistance they need to live a quality life independently, maintaining their personal and social connections with the community, in the comfort of their own home.
