At Home

Life Care is committed to supporting people who want to stay in their own home, remain independent and continue to be a part of their local community.

To achieve this, sometimes a little extra help is needed. For example, assistance with shopping, preparing meals, social outings with friends or maintaining the garden.

Or it could be that some equipment or home modifcation is required to help getting around your home easily and safely.

At Home, Life Care's Community Care service, can offer you that in-home help with a range of services from domestic assistance, personal care and nursing through to respite services, transportation, social activities and network support.

A dedicated Community Care Advisor will work closely with you and your family or friends to design an individually tailored support plan.

At Home’s focus is on helping our customers remain as mobile, independent and active in their own communities by providing targeted and relevant support.

There are several different in-home options available depending on your needs. These include Home Support Programs, Home Care Packages, Respite and Veterans Home Care. At Home can provide all of these services, and you may also may be eligible for Government Funding.
