  • All our care workers are employees, not contractors, who go through a rigorous recruitment process. They all have police checks and have the appropriate qualifications and experience.

  • No set up, exit fees or Basic Daily fee. We only charge a modest package management fee which covers the cost of government compliance and case management.
  • You decide the best time for your care workers to visit each day, that way you will know the exact time they will arrive.

  • Continuity is a priority with us. We ensure a personality match and work closely with you to select the right care worker for you.

  • The Client Care Manager will introduce the care worker to you and ensure they are trained on your care plan. An unknown care worker will never just arrive on you doorstep services can then start immediately.

Care Worker Stories
Annette

I look after Mrs.B.  She is a lively, independent 82 year old, on a Level 2.  She recently had a fall which has knocked her confidence a little and no longer feels comfortable going out by herself.  A large part of my role is to provide lots of support and encouragement so that she grows in confidence.   I visit Mrs B 3 mornings each week.  On Mondays we go to the library, Wednesdays its grocery shopping and on Fridays if the weather is good, we take her dog Daisy for a walk in the park.  In addition I help out with some household chores such as vacuuming, changing bed sheets and cleaning out the fridge each week.

I am on Jim’s Care Team.  He’s a lovely 75-year-old gentleman who has dementia and cannot be left at home alone.  He receives a Level 4 HCP with the cognition supplement.  We visit him every morning to assist with showering and dressing and attend to some housework.  His wife takes care of his meals and medications.  A couple of times each week I also visit him in the afternoon for 3 hours.  Depending on the weather we sometimes go for a walk or do a bit of gardening.  The afternoon visits enable his wife to get out and about and have some much-needed respite. The assigned days vary depending on her schedule. Jim currently uses 10 hours of care worker support each week.  He also uses the Home Care Package subsidy to hire a hospital bed.  He has chosen to save what’s left of his subsidy so that every few months he can have 24-hour care at home when his wife goes Down South to visit her sister. 

What Is A Home Care Package

Do you have to pay towards the cost of your Home Care Package?

There are two fees you may be asked to pay as determined by the Department of Human Services:

Basic Daily Fee
This is a discretionary fee Approved Providers may decide to charge.  Here at Home Care Assistance we do not charge this fee. The maximum basic fee is 17.5% of the single basic aged pension.

Income-tested Care Fee
Depending on your income, you may be required to contribute towards the cost of your care. The Income-tested Care Fee is calculated by the Department of Human Services based on information provided in the Aged Care Fees Income Assessment Form. The rate is revised by the government quarterly.

MyAgedCare have a fee estimator tool to give you an indication of whether you may have to pay an income tested fee

Steps to obtaining a Home Care Package

Step 1
Visit your GP to ask for an ACAT (Aged Care Assessment) referral. Or call us on (08) 9385 5675 and we can request one for you. We can provide services on a private basis until your Home Care Package has been assigned.
Step 2
Have your ACAT Assessment. The assessor will visit you in your home to determine what help you need.
Step 3

Obtain confirmation letters

First letter – confirmation from ACAT that you have been approved for a Home Care Package

Second letter – informing you, you’re near the top of the National queue.  At this point it’s a good idea to: 

  • Complete the Department of Human Services Income Assessment form. Call us and we can mail the form to you.
  • Compare Approved Service Providers. While waiting for your Home Care Package speak to a few service providers and choose the one that best meets your needs.

Final letter – confirmation from My Aged Care that you have been assigned a Home Care Package

Step 4

Select your Approved Service Provider. Services can start immediately

Pam, my daughter, did a lot of research before we settled with you. We felt you had a family feel. Everybody has been so kind and thoughtful, I wouldn’t say its great, I’d say its excellent.
Max B (Caversham)
Your Caregivers come in and treat Mum like Mum, the way you want her to be treated. We’ve been with another care organistion in the past and they couldn’t even encourage Mum to get in the shower, there’s no comparison, you’re 100% better.
Laurie S – (Booragoon)
Rose, the Caregiver, has been like one of the family, nothing is too much trouble. Overall one word sums up your service – meritorious!
