What is Home Care?

Warramunda Home Care is a new service which supports people to people to continue to live safely and comfortably in their homes.

Our care is delivered by trained Personal Care Assistants and our carers are local faces with the added support and resources of our existing Warramunda team.
Warramunda Home Care is for people who need some extra help to make living at home easier for themselves or someone they love. It provides security and confidence to families who, through either distance or work and family commitments, are unable to provide suitable support for their ageing parents.
The services that can be provided in a Home Care Package include:
support services – such as help with washing and ironing, house cleaning, gardening, basic home maintenance, home modifications related to your care needs, and transport to help you with shopping, visit your doctor or attend social activities
personal care – such as help with showering or bathing, dressing and mobility
nursing, allied health and other clinical services – hearing services and vision services
care coordination and case management.

What does it cost?

Warramunda Home Care can be provided on a private user pays basis or, if eligible, at a reduced cost via a Government subsidised Home Care Package.

A Home Care Package provides a co-ordinated package of services tailored to meet your specific care needs to:
help you stay in your own home as you get older
give you choice and flexibility in the way your care and services are provided to you at home.
To find out if you are eligible for a subsidised package you will first need to be assessed by a member of an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). There is no fee or charge for an ACAT assessment.

The Australian Government subsidises a range of aged care services in Australia. If your personal circumstances allow, it is expected you’ll contribute towards the cost of your care if you can afford to do so.
Home Care is also offered on a private basis. This means that there is no assessment or eligibility requirements, or waiting periods.
