Home Care Service - staying at home.
Myth - 'I need some help so have to go into care'
Fact - 'You dont always need to go into care. Home care services may offer enough
support for you to continue living in your own home'.
From experience we find older adults are often unaware of home care services and their benefits.
Most assume that, as they age and develop care needs, their only choice is to enter an aged care facility. In fact, short term or long term care providers can supply home care service in the client's own home.
Home care services include case coordination and referral services. Thia means should a client's care needs exceed what the provider can reasonably supply, they will make the nesseccary referrals for an appropriate level of care.
Depending on circumstance, clients may select a Commonwealth or HACC provider or, private provider to supply a single or package of services. For example clients can receive assistance with
laundry and bed change
