Home Care FAQs

There are many reasons why you might consider Home Care: You may be having more trouble doing things that were easy, experienced a change in your health or returned home from hospital.

Everyone values their independence which means you don’t need to give up your freedom being just because you might need a hand with the day-to-day.

People want to be safe and happy at home and Home Care is all about maintaining your choice and independence and includes a comprehensive case management service.

To gain access Home Care you will need an assessment arranged through the Australian Government’s entry point into aged care services, My Aged Care.

To qualify for an assessment you’ll be aged 65 years or more or aged 50 or more for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people and meet requirements set out by My Aged Care.

If you’re not sure how the process works, please call our Home Care Team on 1300 244 000.

Eligibility for government-subsidised Home Care is based on your needs and circumstances and is determined by an individualised assessment by specialists from My Aged Care and relevant assessment bodies.

For those who require lower levels of support, their assessment will be done by the Regional Assessment Service. 

A face-to-face or phone assessment will quickly determine if you can assess entry-level services under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme some of which can be provided by Catholic Homes.
