What are Home Services?

First things first, let’s clarify what home services are all about. Home Services provide assistance with daily tasks, personal care, transport, basic medical needs, and assistance with overall well-being, while allowing you to continue living in the comfort of your own home. It’s a personalised and flexible solution tailored to your unique needs.

Various Home Services

Home services come in a variety of forms, so it’s essential to understand the different options available. Our Home Services cover four main areas:

Home and Property Services: These focus on maintaining your living space to take the pressure off so you can enjoy more quality time with loved ones. This includes domestic assistance, laundry, lawn care, garden maintenance, and minor repairs, ensuring your living space remains in tip-top shape.

Home Care & Allied Health Services: Offering a wide range of health and home support, this category is adaptable to evolving needs. It includes services like meals and food preparation, continence management, nursing, wound care, and personal care.

Equipment & Technology: Providing various mobility aids and daily living equipment like walking aids, scooters, and shower chairs, all customised based on your assessed needs.

Community & Social Engagement: Our team is here to not only provide you with a diverse range of social activities, including clubs, special interest groups, group outings, and shopping trips but also to support you in maintaining your community connectivity. This way, you can make new friends and savour life to the fullest.

Do Your Homework: Reviews & Credentials

To find the best home services provider, follow these simple steps:

  • Word of Mouth and Testimonials: Listen to what people say, and check online reviews.
  • Awards and Recognitions: Look for awards that indicate excellence in care.
  • Use Resources: Verify their credentials and quality evaluations through My Aged Care, a trusted and neutral platform for information and comparison. You can access the results of quality evaluations using their search and comparison tool.

Cost and Payment

Understanding the cost of home services is essential. Costs can vary depending on the level of care needed, location, and the provider. Eligibility for Home Care Packages can be assessed through My Aged Care.

Engage in a Dialogue

This isn’t just a service; it’s about forming a bond. Open a line of communication with the provider you are researching and ask questions. Prepare a list of questions about their services, carer qualifications, and pricing. This is your chance to get a feel for how they operate.

Friendly Service Goes a Long Way

While skills and expertise are essential, the provider’s approachability and friendliness can’t be overlooked. Engaging with someone who is not only professional but also genuinely caring can make all the difference in everyday interactions.

Choosing the right home care provider is about ensuring a safe, supportive, and comfortable experience while cherishing the comforts of home.
