Private Nursing / Home Care –
Private home care services are available for anyone in the home or at your Aged Care facility or during your hospital stay.
What are Private Home Care Services?
Private home care services are user-pays services.
There is no waiting period for privately-paid home care services. You can access support whenever you need it.
What kind of services can I access to support me at home?
The types of services accessed privately are varied and can range from nursing or palliative care at home, to transport, cleaning, social support and everyday help at home. Private Nursing means you can choose the agency you want and the hours you want.
The type of service you access, and how many hours, is entirely up to you. The agency that you choose can also help by understanding your needs and goals and will work with you to develop a plan for your care.
