Home Care - Overview

Home Care Overview

CatholicCare Home Care services help older Australians to enjoy living independently in your own homes with comfort and confidence; help to get out-and-about, keep up with the chores and maintain health and wellbeing. We will support you to maximise your independence, always ensuring you are at the centre of decision making about your care.

What is government-funded home care?

Recognising that older Australians want to remain in their own homes and communities, the Australian Government provide programs that bring care services into the home. Once assessed and funding is secured, the Government subsidises the cost of care with the flexibility to decide what suits you and your lifestyle. The fees depend on your services and in some cases, your financial situation.

Who can access these services?

People from the age of 65 years (or 50 if you identify as an Aboriginal Australian and/or Torres Strait Islander person).
