I AM INTERESTED IN PRIVATE CARE OPTIONS
At CatholicCare, help comes in lots of ways to suit your individual needs and circumstances. Our suite of private services are available to seniors who are not eligible to receive Government funded supports or services. Under these arrangements, you are not required to receive an assessment through My Aged Care. Instead we provide a fee paying arrangement allowing you to access to our supports and programs.
We pride ourselves in providing support that enables and empowers seniors to live well. Our team are passionate about their work and focus on building consistent trusting relationships. Matching the right carer or activity for you is paramount and we put a lot of focus on making sure we get that right.
WHAT CAN WE PROVIDE YOU?
All our services are accessible through a private fee payment arrangement.
These types of supports could include:
- Personal care
- Community access to events/functions
- Community access to appointments
- Light domestic duties
- Light shopping
- Support meal preparation
- In-home social interaction
- Supervision of the taking of medication
- Various centre based activities based on the interest of participants.
Under a private arrangement, we also have additional support services available, pending availability of appropriately skilled staff:
Quality Living Supports
Support with other in-home activities such as guidance with everyday technology, pet care, making a photo album, creating memoirs and a life story.
Assistance with shopping, visiting health practitioners, emotional supports, social supports and attending community activities.
Light cleaning tasks such as making beds, ironing, laundry, dusting, vacuuming and mopping.
For a comprehensive fee breakdown please refer Payment Options & Fees in our Client Handbook.
HOW ARE THESE FUNDED?
If you already have an active Home Care Package being managed by another provider, it is likely we can provide support to you using a brokerage model. This means you can choose one of our exceptional Senior Living services and programs, while maintaining your current Home Care Package provider. The services will be billed at the private care rates, directly to your Home Care Package agency or Case Manager. We will need to ensure the Senior Living services you are interested in are provided within your Home Care Package budget and schedule of supports. We can work with you to explore this with your provider to ensure they are included in your care plan.
Perhaps you are not interested in a Home Care Package or a Government assessment. We can still connect you to our highly capable workforce, services and programs.
