Home Care

Transport Services

We take the worry out of getting to appointments, activities, events and shopping. For short or long trips, our transport service can get you to where you want to be.

Our friendly team can connect you to your local community, they know the town and will get you out and about. Entry level care and community support services incur a small fee and are subsidised by the Government making services very affordable.

Be independent and get out and about in the community with transport services organised with you by our friendly team.

Our friendly advisors can help make arrangements for you to reach appointments including your doctor, specialist or pharmacist or social event knowing that getting there is easy and simple.

You don’t need to miss out on fun social activities and events because driving or public transport is difficult.

  • Maintain your independence
  • Get to the shops and catch up with friends
  • Medical appointments and banking trips

Transport services with Catholic Homes can be an inexpensive alternative to getting a cab or waiting for the bus.

Funded by the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, our transport services are inexpensive and easy to organise, through My Aged Care.

Once your referral is complete choose us and get to the places you need to be with our dedicated staff ready to help you.

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.
