If you or someone you know is not ready to leave their home, but feels the need for some help which is commonly found at residential care facilities, then Home Care may be an option. 

What is Home Care?

Home Care can help seniors by providing part-time services such as meal preparation, housework and heath care among other services.

Firstly the individual needs to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) to determine what extent of Home Care is needed. It is most likely that this assessment will be free.

This assessment will determine the level of Home Care Package required, depending on care needs.

Home care services can include:

  • Allied health care
  • Registered nurse care
  • Transport to appointments
  • Personal care
  • Assistance with enteral feeding and/or oxygen
  • Social support
  • Laundry and cleaning
  • personal hygiene
  • dressing
  • transport
  • social activities and/or gardening
  • food preparation
  • medication
