Home Care Services Are Flexible

Home Care Services allows elderly people to stay in their homes. It also gives consumers more choice as they can choose regular weekly shifts or shifts as required, social visits, transport for medical appointments. As elderly people can continue to live in their own home, they can have greater control over their routine as compared to living in a nursing home where everything is regimented and there are reduced levels of overall independence which can lead to feelings of sadness and an overall lack of control.

Some of the common reasons why a person may require home care services include advanced age, disability, chronic illness, or recovering from surgery. Some of the home care services that are available for these clients include

  • Personal care tasks such as showering, dressing, toileting and assistance with getting in and out of bed. This can help elderly people to maintain their personal hygiene and overall presentation.
  • Financial management
  • Help with household chores such as cleaning, laundry and shopping which helps with maintaining overall living standards
  • Cooking or meal delivery services which reduces the risk of malnutrition in the elderly
  • Healthcare such as having a podiatrist or physiotherapist come to the home to perform a home visit which improves elderly people’s access to healthcare
  • Transport to appointments or social outings which reduces the risk of social isolation and helps elderly people keep in touch with both friends and family

Depending on your eligibility, these services can be offered as part of a Home Care package or they can be privately funded. At Home Care Assistance, we will work with you to determine what services will be best suited to your needs and if you are eligible for government funding.

Anyone who thinks that they may be eligible for NDIS funding can use the access request form which can be found at https://www.ndis.gov.au/how-apply-ndis/what-access-request-form. Alternatively, you can call the NDIS at 1800 800 110 and make a verbal access request or contact your local NDIA office and ask for the access request form to be mailed to you.

A home care package does not replace any services that are accessed via other health programs such as group exercise classes or diabetes education and you should continue to access these via your GP or local hospitals.

Some of the services that a home care package cannot be used for include

  • Buying groceries
  • Mortgage payments or rent
  • Payment of home care fees
  • Home modifications or assets that are not related to your care
  • Travel and accommodation for holidays
  • Entertainment
  • Payment for services accessed via Medicare or the PBS

We have been with Home Care assistance for last three years. I am impressed by the diversity of the services, they provide.I had few carers but the carer, Shweta, has been coming to us for last two... years, has been a Godsend. She pushes him to do the things which i am unable to. It’s a compliment to Homecare assistance to employ professionals of that standard.No matter what problem I incur, all I have to do is to ring the agency..The eagerness and understanding towards the need of the client is amazing.I would recommend Homecare assistance to anyone and everyone, who requires assistance in all aspects of life.In my case i am grateful of the help i am getting to look after my husband.read more

Home Care Assistance provided a quick response to my query and were able to get a... person for me in time for me to go to my brother's funeral in another state.
