Private Care

Why is
Private Care Good?

We all need help from time to time. Not everyone qualifies or even wants government assistance.

Home care packages or NDIS are subsidies from the Australian Government, and sometimes waiting for approval can be a long process.

If it’s the case that you need help at home despite this, private care can be a good option to cover what you need for the period of time you’re on a waitlist, or well again. Searching for good, care providers can also be a solution and together we help you find the right fit for your needs.

We provide trained and qualified, trustworthy people who have police checks, work with children checks (if applicable), and we can provide references to and interviews if this helps you. We have options for all budgets.

Receiving privately funded care in your home means that you're personally funding the costs of your carers without the assistance of the Government.

You don't need to deal with waitlists for services in Private Home Care. Arrange your services directly with the provider, and you get what you pay for.

Although more expensive than a subsidised Home Care Package, Private Home Care is often cheaper than institutional alternatives like an Aged Care Home.

Private Aged Care providers offer a wide variety of services, and with Private Care, there is no limit to the number of hours and support you need weekly.

What is
Private Aged Care?

Home Care means that you’re getting the care you need in the comfort of your own home, near your friends, family and loved ones. Your carer and support services come to you. In Private Aged Care, you have a lot more freedom in choosing the supports you need in the quantities you need it, and it depends on your provider on how expensive it truly needs to be.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of private care for primary care given?

Private care can be how you give time back to yourself, stepping back from your role as a caregiver and back to spending more quality time with the person you love.

Since you’re paying for your own services, you enter directly into an agreement with the home care provider. You don’t have to pass an eligibility test, or be limited in the hours and days you get help around the home. You will also be able to avoid waitlists.

Furthermore, Private Home Care is often a more cost-effective option than entering yourself into an aged care home and other institutions.

What are some good questions to ask about your providers?

Searching for a suitable provider for you can get tough, especially if you’re searching for help for the first time.

Here are some helpful questions to get you started on searching for a private care provider.

  • Do they service your area?
  • What experience do the owners, operators and carers have in providing private care? What are their minimum standards of professionalism?
  • Does the company have an appropriate amount of insurance?
  • Do they have a Service Agreement?
  • Does the company provide worker’s compensation, so that you aren’t liable to pay for any injuries that happen during the job?
  • Do you get to decide what times and days suit your needs?

And more! Our aged care consultants will listen to your circumstances and find you the perfect provider for you after listening to all of your questions, and asking a few crucial ones of our own to avoid pitfalls.

I have a HCP. Does that mean I can't get Private Home Care?

It depends on the provider! But ultimately yes.

Some government-funded providers also provide some home-care services privately for clients to purchase individually. This means that, in addition to the subsidy that the Government pays you for your main supports, you can also pay extra from your own pocket and top up to get the additional help you need.

Also, private home care is a popular alternative to provide some extra hours of help which you may not be covered underneath your plan.

When is Private Aged Care the best option?

Private Aged Care can be a good option if you only require short-term care, such as a temporary injury, or that you’re returning home from hospital to recover from surgery. It’s not worth the effort to apply for a highly competitive Home Care Package if you only need extra help for a month or two.

Also, Private Home Care can be a great option for people who have family as their primary carers. You can hire a worker for a few weeks as Respite Care, so that your main carer can breathe and recharge, spending time with friends and you, in the capacity of a loved one instead of a carer. As much as loved ones are not a burden, everyone deserves to take a break, once in a while.
