Home help (also known as home care) is an alternative aged care service that allows you to remain living independently in your home, but with assistance with some tasks you may find difficult. In Queensland, there are a variety of home help providers that can tailor an home help care program to suit your care needs.
Home help can provide assistance with a range of everyday tasks including personal care, domestic assistance, nursing care, respite care, home & garden maintenance, transport and home modifications.

The National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) has called for systemic reform of home care for older Australians, to ensure the long-term sustainability and effectiveness of the system.
The National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) has received two funding grants from the National Health and Medical Research Council. The NHMRC’s latest round of grants, announced this week by the Federal Minister for Health Greg Hunt MP, included a combined total of almost $1.7 million for two of NARI’s projects – CultureCare and IMPART.
For many aged care residents, aged care workers may be the only people they have seen in quite some time. Unfortunately, there are many elderly people who are not visited by family or friends, or perhaps do not have family and friends to visit them.
As Australia gets closer to reaching 70% and 80% vaccination coverage that will allow restrictions to ease, older people are looking ahead to what a re-opening will look like for them.
